September 12, 2020 – Drummer Boy Park – Massachusetts

Today Wilma and I Adventured to Drummer Boy Park in Brewster, Massachusetts. Drummer Boy Park includes “Windmill Village”, Higgins Farm Windmill, several short trails, and a playground. “Windmill Village” is part of the Brewster Historical Society. Tours of the Windmill are available, however the Brewster Historical Society’s 2020 season has been cancelled.

We had a fun Adventure to Drummer Boy Park. I was drawn to this Park by the Higgins Farm Windmill, and decided to explore the entire area. We spent the majority of our Adventure checking out the Windmill, and made sure to traverse every trail we could find. Wilma found a gigantic rock to hop on and check out the view from above. We found the Park to be popular for families with young children, and visitors photographing the Windmill. A simple Adventure, but we loved the Higgins Farm Windmill. So glad we could Adventure to Drummer Boy Park today (Rating: 3.5).

Throwback Adventure – Nickerson State Park – Massachusetts

I will have sections of my blog that I will title “Throwback Adventure”, and will plan on posting them every Thursday. These are journeys we have taken before I started the blog, but are well worth sharing.

In April of 2014, Shadow, Buster, My Mom and I Adventured to Nickerson State Park in Brewster, Massachusetts, a town in Cape Cod. Brewster State Park is a Public Recreation Area with over 1,900 acres of land. It is popular for camping, fishing, boating, wooded trails, and swimming.

We had a magnificent Adventure to Nickerson State Park in Brewster, Massachusetts. As you will know if you are a follower of my blog my memories of our Throwback Adventures is generally not as detailed as current posts. However, I remember absolutely loving this beautiful park. We found the perfect trail around one of the gorgeous ponds, with spots along the path to sit and relax. The boys enjoyed some swims, naps along the way, and of course an energetic hike.

I was inspired by the boys’ desire for numerous swims, so I decided to wade far in the water (in my jeans!) so the boys could enjoy the nice refreshing water. Glad my Mom was able to capture a shot of this moment. I was reminded in viewing the photographs how Buster always used to love chewing on sticks along our journeys. We sure do miss his enthusiasm for our Adventures! One of the reasons I really do love sharing our Throwback Adventures. Nickerson State Park was definitely a lovely location, and I do hope to visit again in the future.
