A day trip

While Ashleigh was here we wanted to be able to take one day to show her more of New England. Last Summer we visited the White Mountains in NH, and York Beach in ME. This time we headed to Plum Island in MA. It's near or maybe it is Newburyport. HEE! I don't really know.

Our first stop was to get Ashleigh some seafood. We stopped in Dover at Newick's to fulfill her one request. It's not easy to get fresh seafood in Kansas so we always make sure to take her out while she is here.

Next we visited Parker River National Wildlife Refuge. It's mostly a refuge for birds like the Piping Plover who are endangered and lay their eggs in the sand of the beach. The refuge keeps people off the sand so the eggs can be hatched safely. I was so sad when I realized that I had forgotten my camera:( We stopped at a store and I bought a disposable film camera. It was sooo strange using one of those again. I was surprised at how well the pictures actually came out. I am definitely going back with my Canon though. It was a beautiful place to take some family photos. Here are a few of the shots that I scanned into my computer.

We went for a walk on the board walk then ended up at a beach. We just ran around, played on the rocks, and waded in the tide pools. There was even a racoon waiting for us back at the car. You can tell that people feed him because he wasn't aggressive but was trying to find a little snack.
