Fall in New England

Today was a little cool, but with the sun, I decided it was a perfect day for a walk.
Right down the road, we have a beautiful pond for fishing and paddling.
Sometimes we need to explore the little wonders, in our own backyards.

We took the main path and as you go through the woods, you get glimpses of the coves. This is all swamp area where the birds hide and nest.

The main path goes along side the pond and comes out at the end. Here is where a lot of people go to fish.
The views and the color from this point, are breath taking.

It is just too peaceful and beautiful to walk off, you need to sit a spell and enjoy the day.

To get to the other side, we cross a little wooden bridge, which crosses the spillway.

We walk along part of the dirt road to get back to a path that takes you to the perfect spot to stop and enjoy the views.

It is a great place to take in some more views, this is looking back to the first stop we made.

And on the other side, a wonderful view of the wildlife. The swans were out and in the spring it is teaming with birds and turtles. Sadly just as I put my camera away, the swans took flight, what a perfect way to end the day.
