May 24, 2016 – Quincy Bog

While we were in Plymouth for candidating week, we often awoke at 5:30 am. Rather than staring at the ceiling, we often went for a short morning hike.

Coffee in hand, we arrive at Quincy Bog, just a few minutes from the hotel.

It’s an interesting area of wetland, bog, and wildlife. We saw many spring flowers, lady slippers, and one evening Martin and I saw one of the beavers that live here, including a great tail slap on the water.

There are many boardwalks that cut through the trail, giving you access to territory you would not normally be able to walk to.


And no, the bugs were not bad at all (perhaps the early morning chill helped).
