Summer Scavenger Hunt

We have a list of things to hunt for this summer - it has been fun.  I have another to add today.

19 - Public Garden

Bayview Cemetery has many plantings and garden areas to enjoy.  They encourage the town's people to walk, jog or bike (respectfully) through the gardens and markers.  Sometimes you will see a family picnicking under the trees.  It is a serene and calming place to visit in the summer when the Dogwood Trees are blooming.

Zoom In Zoom Out Moon

A few days ago I looked up and there was the moon -  just about to go behind the trees across the street.
