So Monday was the one day where I had difficulties getting anything scheduled. So we were holding out again for good weather. Maybe today would be the day to play at the beach.
Um, no. No such luck…
So we decided that today we would again visit other classes to see what offerings might be on the menu for next year. And then try for outside later.
We walked down to the bike path to see one of the exercise stations. It was newly refurbished last winter. And now there’s new reasons to bike down to the waterfront. We got to talk about camping and point at the beach, but we didn’t get much farther than that. No sandy toes for me.
After that, we checked out the gardening group with Brian Williams. They are doing some work up at Rock Point. Mosquitos were thick! Brian took a few minutes to talk to us about the farm to school program and about working in different gardens around the community. They were working at putting in raised beds and had beautified the school’s gardens a few days earlier.
In the afternoon, we went to my neck of the woods, stopping in at Salmon Run, where we took the path down to the water, despite the sprinkles of rain. Then we walked across the river and saw Winooski’s nature path.
Because mosquitos were not our friends, we didn’t venture in too much. But we were there long enough to see a couple of places that might be nice for a picnic later in the season.
My thanks to Brian for letting us come see your class, and to Rock Point, for letting us use your restrooms and play on the swing.
