Fall walks in Freeport, Maine

Took the opportunity today to head out to Winslow Park for a walk with Bre. It's more exercise than you might think as Bre can no longer get in and out of the car by herself. Can you say 'Moose!' Holy cow she weighs a ton. Of course part (all) of that is my fault because she doesn't get out and get enough walks and she does like her buttermilk biscuits for breakfast!

We did the short loop around Winslow Park on Staples Point Rd- just about 5.5 miles from the inn. Great day. It was warm and sunny with a gentle breeze blowing the salty air around. What a relaxing way to spend the afternoon. You can pick up a picnic lunch right on the corner at the Old World Deli. (It must be noted that the park is 'closed' for the season. This means no trash cans, so pack it out with you when you leave. And no restrooms, so go before you leave the house, like your mother always told you to do!)

All of the docks pulled up for the year. It's nice and quiet to walk through the woods trails in October. Relatively few people out midweek and most of them were walking their dogs or having lunch with their little kids at the picnic tables overlooking the water.

Why not recharge your human batteries with a walk in the woods this October! If you head all the way out to the 'Point' on Staples Point Rd, you can still see the marina filled with sailboats. But, not for long. They'll all be put away soon.
