My husband traveled back to our home state of Massachusetts to visit family last week. While he was up there he visited some of our favorite haunts, one of which is the wildlife refuge that we used to live a few minutes away from in Taunton, Ma. I was pleasantly surprised when he sent me a few snapshots of his visit while he was still away.
Formally named the Gertrude M. Borden Wildlife Refuge, but known to locals as “the bird sanctuary,” it is a quiet park with trails and a boardwalk along the river. It was the perfect place for summertime strolls and appreciating the local fall foliage, even if at times it felt like it wasn’t being as well maintained as it should have been.
My husband’s pictures show it on the edge of autumn, when the days are still warm but a chill creeps into the air after sunset.
