Thomas' Cove


Chores and errands were on the schedule today, including a trip into Truro to see if the RV dealer there had some parts I needed for the motorhome. On the way, though, I decided to brighten up an otherwise boring day with an excursion down a side road that parallels one of the numerous rivers that carve paths through the landscape on their way to the sea. Just a short way down the lane I rounded a curve and was greeted with a sweeping view of the river and the top of the riverbank blanketed with a variety of wildflowers. Further along I came upon a marsh with a giant beaver dam ringing the edge of it, close to the road. Someone had erected a crude “No Trapping” sign and installed a wire cage at the “back door” to the beaver lodge, presumably to keep the residents out of harms way. Near the end of the road there was a fork and a sign directing travelers to Thomas’ Cove Reserve, a plot of land that was donated by a prominent local farmer. The Reserve consists of several acres of land overlooking a small cove. Several hiking trails have been cleared out of the woods that rim the top of the cliff, including a short trail that leads to a wooden stairway down to the cove floor. It is a beautiful and tranquil spot to just relax and appreciate the natural setting. Ahhhhhh!
