vacation - day two

We did an on again off again schedule of events for the vacation. After the big day and late night in NYC we went for a calm day in Jersey. So we looked around for something close to home and found the Frelinghuysen Arboretum in Morristown. It was a beautiful sunny & seventies day so a walk around a garden seemed like a good way to spend a couple of hours of the afternoon.

The entrance:

Various views of the paths and from the number of new and small things protected by fencing I would guess that deer are a problem. Some of the garden was very formal and some not so much.

Looking to the right at the site of the above photo there was evidence that Sandy took its toll with much obvious repair. At the edges of the park there were still trees that had yet to be dealt with.

We stopped on the way home and bought a lot of lobsters and veg and had a nice dinner on the porch disassembling said beasties.
