Once back in his barn, Matthew gets a little more chatty…If asked, he will tell you what he knows about the economics of the Island, the crops that are being grown that year~ this is actually, quite interesting, the whole Island works together on crop rotation. And Matthew is, naturally ~ a very good ~ caring horseman.

And dance upon the mountains like a flame.”

Be violets in their secret mews
The flowers the wanton Zephyrs choose;
Proud be the rose, with rains and dews
Her head impearling;
Thou liv’st with less ambitious aim,
Yet hast not gone without thy fame;
Thou art indeed by many a claim
The Poet’s darling…..

It was a cool ~ somewhat rainy, relieve. Being a holiday weekend we were not the only ones seeking its beauty ~ but with all the natural shrubbery it was still quite peaceful. If you’re looking for a mountain retreat ~this is a lovely spot, not only is there a campground but also an Inn and restaurant.

Hope you are having a lovely spring!!
