September 28, 2019 – The Wayside Inn Historic District – Massachusetts

Today Shadow, Wilma, and I Adventured to The Wayside Inn Historic District in Sudbury, Massachusetts.  The Wayside Inn is said to be the oldest, continually operating Inn in the country.  The Historic District has nine buildings, including:  The Wayside Inn, The Grist Mill, The Martha Mary Chapel, and The Schoolhouse.  The property encompasses 100 acres of property including these buildings, trails, field, and gardens.  The area is popular for weddings, visitors, and photography.

We had an interesting Adventure to The Wayside Inn Historic District.  Upon arrival I was shocked to see crowds, and crowds of people soon discovering it was due to the Colonial Faire and Muster of Fyfes and Drums Event.  This led to quite the complicated parking situation, however, we eventually found a parking spot and began our journey.  I had planned to walk the Innkeeper Loop, however never located the trail, so decided to wander where our eyes, and noses (haha) guided.  We explored The outdoor landmarks, including:  The Grist Mill, The Martha Chapel, and the Schoolhouse, and wandered along several trails in the vacinity.  We chatted with guests and appreciated the unique Fyfe music.  I was impressed that Wilma was hardly phased by the loud drums from various directions, and although Shadow had a couple nervous moments, he overall was quite relaxed.

The day was a warm one so we did not do any strenuous walking, but more exploring.  Wilma loved greeting all guests possible, participated in excessive roles, and  almost literally knocked me off my feet jumping on a gigantic boulder along the trail.  Shadow loved his “normal “Adventure rolls, and was quite satisfied with his dip in the brook.  I loved the Fyfe music along the way, and appreciated the unique atmosphere and location.  There were scenic little spots along the pond, pretty paths along the brook, and a couple simple bridges throughout.   I was quite ecstatic to see many signs of fall, with colorful leaves along the way, and piles of leaves along the trails.  Our favorite time of year has just about arrived!!  And although the sun was not too cooperative for photographs I still posted a variety below.  So glad we could visit the Wayside Inn Historic District today (Rating:  3).
