A few more pics from our Mt. Hope Farm walk...


Anything good down here?
Moo & Mt. Hope Bridge
Panorama, so pretty here!
Hey! Here's one for Rusty! Is he around?
He loves machines, this must be from the old farm!
We passed a pond where this guy was getting ready fur a swim...
Hey, you're not leaving cause of us, are woo?
Listening to his friends calling after him really quacked us up!
Coming up to the old barn...
A beautiful old shingled barn with a masthead!
This must be her job after she retired from the sea!
The road took us past the house & back around to the car. We were tired tired pups when we finally got back to the Siberian Outback! And woo know what they say.. "a tired Sibe is a good Sibe". Whatever.

Hope our mid-week trip helps woo make it to the week-end!

a-roos to yous and toodle-woo,
Jack a-roo & Miss Moo

PS - Do woo like history? Her's a bit about the farm lands:
In the Settlement era, the Mount Hope Lands, comprised of Mount Hope and Poppasquash Necks, belonged to King Philip, Sachem of the Wampanoags. After his death in the “miry swamp” at the foot of Mount Hope in 1676, Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts Bay Colony and Rhode Island all claimed this prized territory. By a royal grant, King Charles II of England awarded the land to Plymouth Colony on January 12, 1680. On September 14, 1680, the Mount Hope Lands, totaling 7,000 acres were sold to John Walley, Nathaniel Byfield, Stephen Burton and Nathaniel Oliver, four wealthy Boston merchants, for 1100 pounds.

Do woo remember our walk in January at Weetamoo Park? Turns out she was King Phillip's sister-in-law!

What a great adventure! I loved all the cool stuff - especially that swan and all the gooses! Mom liked the history, too!

Gorgeous! Mom says she loves the old barn and would love to turn something like that into a house to live in. She has always wanted to take one of the old barns we see in the midwest here and transform it info a house.
