Greetings from the Audubon Society

The weather on Sunday was beautiful, low humidity and sunny, so after lunch and some chores, we went to the Audubon Naturalist Society's Woodend Sanctuary, which we've never visited even though it's only 15 minutes from my home on the grounds of a 1928 estate with a mansion designed by John Russell Pope. The ruins of a spring house, ice house, stone steps, and well are on the grounds, as well as plantings and structures by local naturalists and students. There were very few people and plenty of flowers.

We had leftover pasta for dinner so that we would have time to Skype with the kids; both sons' girlfriends are in the midst of exciting job changes despite the pandemic, so they have more exciting long term plans than we do, heh. Afterward we watched Lovecraft Country, which remains excellent, and then the end of Black Panther on ABC while waiting for the 20/20 special about Chadwick Boseman to start, which was well done considering how fast they had to throw it together and really sad.
