This morning I decided to check out some locations listed on the Barrington Land Conservation Trust web page. My first stop was St. Andrews Farm. It’s a small field with some walking paths around the perimeter and through it. It is nicely tucked away behind the soccer fields along Middle Highway. I followed the path from the parking lot into the property which runs through an area of bushes and trees. There were several hundred birds rustling in this area. I then went right and followed the perimeter path. It is a wide lane path the follows the terrain up and down small hills. I found myself fascinated with the shapes of some of the old trees here. I came across an interesting little feature while here. One of the abutting property owners has a “M*A*S*H” pole at the back of their property near the perimeter path. It features directions and distances to places such as Camelot, Narnia, Treasure Island, and Whoville to name a few. Besides birds I came across a rabbit here. It startled me more than I startled it. After doing the perimeter I made my way back to the car.
I did not find a map on-line.
