I decided to stop at Laudholm Farms, a nature preserve where I've never been because they don't allow pets. The property was all but vacant....I never saw another soul while there and just as I pulled in the sun made a reappearance. Perfect timing. The world (well the world at Laudholm Farms) was all mine. How grand and rare at this time of year when the region is normally inundated with tourists and vacationers to have a piece of it all to myself.
