I love it when we have an indian summer, well half the week at least. It seems we have a few cold days, a few rainy days and a few warm ones. The saying in New England is, "If you don't like the weather, give it five minutes". We took advantage of the nice weather and went for a walk at the sanctuary. It is a beautiful walk, and I never tire of it. We saw a few small creatures scurrying about, getting ready for winter and the ducks and geese were enjoying the shelter of the pond.
The trails are very diversified. It starts out in the fields and takes you to a path in the woods which comes out to a point, where you can see water on both sides.
At the end of the point, they have a little tower that you can sit at and enjoy the view. The cove is surrounded on the outer edges by a beach barrier, but you can see the ocean and Block Island on a nice day.
The inner cover is filled with wild birds, duck, geese and swans. The birds were all hiding behind the small islands to keep out of the wind. You can see a bit of foliage, but along the coast the salt air tends to lessen the colors on the trees.
