Weekend Wanderings Giveaway!

Saturday we stayed home, we had a new slider going in to replace the french doors. They finished putting the door in and Bill is doing the framing. Today he put the spray foam in the frame area and as usual got foam on more than the door and one thing was, my long ark quilt that I had hanging over the doors. I think I can just take out the stitches on the border and then cut that off and rebind it, I hope;)

Sunday was a beautiful day and too hot for one thing and too cold for another. I decided to just get out for a ride and a few walks in areas near the ocean for the breezes but away from the crowds.

The first place we visited was a short walk next to a park. I had read a story online about an event that happened here, so I thought it would be fun to check it out, since it was a short walk. So, for this contest, tell me what story you think is the real story about this place. I will draw a name from the winning answers and one from all the comments. The winners will have their choice of any one of my epatterns. The contest will end on Friday and I will announce the winner, Friday night.

A. A peace treaty was signed with the local indian tribe.
B. A couple eloped and landed their canoe here.
C. The Mayflower landed here.
D. Roger Williams started the first baptist church with an outdoor sermon, here.

Then onto the real hike. We went back to the glacial park, it has great trails and if you hike on the upper trails, great ocean breezes.

My daughter loved the views from the rest area. Great place to just sit and enjoy a cool breeze without fighting the traffic.

On the way back I spied a Lady Slipper, a nice way to end a beautiful day.

I don't have a clue of the historical event that took place in the park ! I just wanted to comment on the ladiy's slipper. We always go to the smoky mts in the spring to look at the wild flowers ,we have a spot that we go to just to drool over the pink and yellow lady's slippers this year we were to early and then to late! So I love your picture. I am in the process of hooking a pink lady's slipper rug .

Well.the Leni Lenape Indians were a peaceful tribe and may have signed a treaty there. Pretty area for hiking or eloping or even a worship service.
