Last spring I received a GPS for my birthday and for fun I would take the girls on car rides allowing them to tell me where to turn, with the ultimate goal of "getting lost", which is oh so exciting to them.
It was on one of these trips that involved turning right at the horse barn and two long and windy dirt roads, that we discovered the Connecticut Audubon's Bafflin Sanctuary...acres and acres of fields speckled with bird houses and lush wildflowers and upon further discovery, carved with walking trails!!!
Since then, we've spent many a day here running along the paths wondering what lay around the next corner and still haven't walked even a 1/4 of the way around!!
Such beauty right around the corner, who knew?
