99/365 Another Sunday, another Sugar Shack
It is probably for the best that Maple Syrup season is such a short one, as the sugar rushes and crashes are really quite tiring. Post nap I can again look back on this morning with pleasure....
A morning out with friends, all you can eat breakfasts with lashings of syrup, rickety sugar shacks and farmyard animals - perfection.
The shack itself was old and dark, with sun shafts shining through the sweet steam.
The animals were very fond of humans - the ENORMOUS pig enjoyed having his belly rubbed and the cows were particularly fond of licking our hands with their ridiculously long and rough tongues.....but best of all were the turkeys.
Who knew turkeys were so interactive, you say 'gobble gobble' and they 'gobble gobble'.....hours of entertainment. These particular turkeys were far more responsive to the voices of small children, but that didn't stop us trying.
