Poor CP#1 had a tooth pulled and a stomach bug last week, which means the Cute Potato ladies were in the house for 5 days straight. CP#1 didn’t have energy for much activity other than napping and watching marathons of Good Luck Charlie. By week’s end, she still didn’t feel 100%, and MP was getting a bad case of cabin fever.

On Saturday, Dad Potato took over nursing duty, so CP#2 and MP could get out for a few hours. We decided on a short trip to Mackworth Island in Falmouth. The walk couldn’t have been more restorative. MP swears she could smell Spring in the air: that marvelous, earthy scent packed with promise. And she’d forgotten how beautiful Mackworth Island can be this time of year.

MP is regularly in search of manageable walks she can take with the kids—hikes that give CP#1 and #2 a sense of accomplishment, and that don’t cause reactions like “I’m tired! I want to go back to the car!” That’s why MP likes the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge in Wells.

The refuge is the perfect spot to enjoy an easy nature walk with family. Parking is close to the trail’s entrance (as are the bathrooms) and there are a few picnic tables to enjoy lunch. Just be sure to bring bug spray!

Just one of many lovely views along the trail.
