A Wander through the Meadows of Myles Standish State Park

Here is a bit of summer for those of you that are not enjoying these gray days of November. This day, I accompanied Traveler Two and Traveler Six as groom while they took their two fine mounts for a nice hack through the meadows. I took my camera, of course. Butterflies, bees, and dragonflies were everywhere, flying in mad dances through grass, flower and bush.
