Anyone who knows me knows I am an ocean girl, and I definitely enjoyed my time at the ocean while I was there however one experience really left a lasting impression on me. We were staying at a house on Bray Farm Rd in Yarmouth Port Cape Cod. I was told there was a farm at the end of the street. On Sunday morning I decided to put Cole in his stroller and venture out for a walk with just the two of us. The walk itself was enjoyable as I love checking out houses and just going for walks in general. As I rounded the top of the hill I became awestruck as I first caught site of the farm. It was like walking back in time and to another country all in one. The pavement turned to a dirt road that went along the edge of the farm. As soon as I hit the dirt path with the stroller I noticed a fine mist coming down and me and I could feel the mist just rolling on the ground in the area. The mist extended as far as I could see.
I walked up the dirt path a bit and found a large rock on the side of the road. I could see it was engraved so of course I had to check it out. :) It was engraved with the following "Ye Old Taylor Rock, Near this rock about the year 1639 Richard Taylor built his house. Erected by George P and William Bray." The house itself was just a little ways from the rock. It was sunk into the hillside on the side of the dirt road just behind the house. I walked up the path a bit further and as I looked up I could see the fence along the edge of the farm and in the distance was a tree line with an opening that just looked over the mountains. With the rolling mist the scene was beyond breathtaking and I was immediately calmed and felt at home.
They keep the farm open to the public so I brought the stroller up under a tree and unhooked Cole letting him down to wander free about the farm. I spent the next couple hours relaxing, following Cole and watching the donkeys, chickens, sheep and Scottish "coo's" or Scottish Highland Cattle:))) I could not have felt more comfortable or at home which I found strange for a place I had never been. It's very hard to put into words the experience that I had, but I know that it is one that I will not forget, and a time with my son that I will cherish forever. The pictures really don't do it justice but I tried to get some :)
