Talbot's Point is a small bit of conservation land in E. Sandwich. I grew up right down the street but rarely ever went there. It kind of scared my parents, the thought of me wandering around in there. And in the mid 80s there was this ridiculous rumour...which turned into hysteria....that there was a satanic cult practicing in the woods here and were sacrificing animals. It reached it's crescendo on Halloween 1986. Of course nothing happened, and it was just a bunch of kids out there partying and drawing pentagrams everywhere.
Russell's not crazy about my solo adventures to the beaches and woods so I dragged him with me.
There are several trails that go down to the marshes, and some that hook up with the trails at the old bird farm.
Any time the trees would start to get green would be good.
This is the bridge that links the point with the bird farm conservation area. There are no more birds there now.
No idea what these were.
And new growth
When I was a kid I would walk these tracks, from across the street from my house and all the way down to the end of Old County Road. Russell used to walk the tracks to E. Sandwich from where he lived at Town Neck, hunting for rabbits and birds.
This is looking towards the east, where I lived.
I'm glad that it's finally getting nice enough that I can get back out to explore again. It seemed like a very cold, long winter.
