3.27.15 - Private Walk - Cape Cod & South Coast Home Schoolers
Scorton Creek - Sandwich, MA

Mud.  We started this adventure off with MUD!  One of the minivans got supremely stuck in the mud, but through perseverance, teamwork & thankfully some guys from MBL (I went to school there for a semester! See BUMP) showing up at the right time... the minivan was rescued and we were off on our walk!  Somehow we were able to sneak this walk in through the rain clouds and no wind to chill us.  The woods were basically ours.  We spotted some cavities in trees when discussing where some birds tough out the storms.  There was not a ton of bird activity, most likely due to the rain storm, but we did make it to the bridge over the creek where we discovered some feathery friends. This is such a sweet bunch of kids, and even though the mud incident delayed our walk, it made for an adventure that NEVER could have happened within the walls of a schoolhouse!
