A friend on FB posted some pictures earlier this week of the sugar bush activities at a local nature center. (was that a long sentence or what?)(and this is activity #1=)) I have wanted to take the kids out there for a few years, but there is never enough time. This week I saw those photos and decided this was going to be the year to see how maple syrup is made. And if this is the year, then this is the week. Sugaring season is winding down. Public tours run Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, so we headed down the road a few miles today, and experienced this phenomena.

And, I'm thinking its only going to get better...we are having corned beef, colcannon, soda bread and carrots for dinner.
Anyone want to join us?
