Our Trip to the T.C. Steele Site
On Tuesday we had a great time at the T. C. Steele State Historic Site. We hiked along the wildflower trail down to the creek, watched frogs and goldfish in the ponds, and tried our own "plein air" painting with acrylic on canvas, inspired by T. C. Steele's work.
On Thursday we spent a lot of our time in the big creek. All of our tadpoles had hatched so we decided to release some of them into a still part of the creek, as we had too many for our tank. We also worked together on building a dam, played in the fine sand at "Fairywood Beach," and tried our hand at rock stacking. It felt so good to be barefoot and totally immersed in nature on a warm spring day.
