Hiking the Jim Fin

The Jim Fin (as I am calling it) is a nature trail named after my late brother. It is located on land our family used to own and there’s a long story involved that I won’t go into today.

My cousin UKW and I walked the nature trail today. At a certain point on the trail, you take a turn onto a path with straight lines of pine trees on either side. This is my dad’s friend Lewie Read’s pine plantation. I kind of remember the prehistory of this. There was a big barren area along the way down the road to our beach. Lewie planted pine trees and they grew and eventually they became tall like in the pic.

I posted this pic on Instagram and then out of curiosity, I flipped over to the Round Island Nature Preserve location. There are soooo many versions of this picture out there including some snow pics and others that I have taken.

We had flying pig tonight. That means that we grilled a couple dcuk breasts and warmed up a couple pork chops from yesterday. Rice, salad, and gloppy mushrooms. Yeah, I know how to make a roux. Roight. It’s okay. We’ll use it later in the week prob’ly.

    Flying pig! That is a cool term. I love those pines; they’re like poles.
