This morning was the annual Buck & Doe Trust breakfast in the Laurels, where we feasted on pancakes, strawberries, apple-cider donuts, and sausages at the Mary Ann Pyle covered bridge. As we arrived at the Fairview Road entrance, some Brandywine Conservancy folks gave us the option of parking there and taking a shuttle down to the site, or braving the muddy pathway. We put the Jeep in four wheel drive and had no problem.
We saw lots of friends and neighbors (along with kids and dogs) and, as always, enjoyed walking through the spectacular scenery of the Laurels.
The speakers (Amy McKenna, Morris Stroud, and Virginia Logan) paid fond tribute to George "Frolic" Weymouth and invited us to help celebrate the Trust's 30th birthday with cake.
