I know it’s been 2 months since Father’s Day but I am very slack in getting things ready to post.
Lynda and Adam took me to the Ellis Bird Farm for an outing. Well, I drove, but they technically took me. We had never been there and it was a nice day for an outing. I’ve driven past is a few times but it was always at times other then when it was open.
It was a fairly windy day but that kept it from being too hot.
We wandered around the farm for a bit taking photos along the way.
There is so much to see in such a small area. We went to the butterfly garden and didn’t see any butterflies but plenty of flowers and plants.
As it was getting later in the afternoon we went into the Tea House for lunch. We had no reservation but got lucky and there was room for us. Mind you we had to switch tables, but still room. The lady that runs it is very nice and the food was terrific.
With lunch over we wandered back outside and were in time to join a walk to the West Woods with Myrna Pearman; the farm’s biologist. I’ve know Myrna for many years and she was genuinely happy to see us at the farm. Usually she comes into my work and I help her with stuff. It was nice to be on the other side for a change.
I totally enjoyed the day with my family. It was a nice distraction from the stress we were under getting ready to move. I would recommend checking out the Ellis Bird Farm to anyone. It is a very relaxed place to visit.
