Yesterday we took a little trip to a place my brother recommended: The Thompson Park Deer Preserve in Jamesburg, NJ.
Wow - what a place. Within the park there is a very large fenced area in which there are many deer enjoying their quiet life. And the deer have been having babies, because we saw at least half a dozen fawns. We also saw many does and bucks. At first just to see one deer was exciting, and as we continued to walk the perimeter of the area we would come across many deer. At one point, there were about a dozen deer relaxing in a sunny spot, near a creek, and also near the fence.
The children enjoyed feeding the deer clover that was growing on the outside of the fence. And the deer enjoyed eating it.
I didn't get too many great pictures because of the fence - but my brother has some awesome pictures from this preserve that can be seen here.
It was a pleasant way to spend the afternoon - and then we went to my parents and had a leisurely dinner, with my brother and sister-in-law.
A very nice day to spend the day.
