maple syrup

The sounds of Lucas Ohio today included.... rain drops, live music, boiling sap over crackling fires and horses' hooves.

Despite the weather we took Ron's brother and his boys (from Texas) to Malabar Farm where sap was being extracted from trees - guides dressed in frontier attire explained the process - and many items made from maple syrup were available to purchase including maple Carmel-corn and even maple flavored cotton candy!

Sometimes we take our area for granted, I am determined this year to enjoy our surroundings and take full advantage of being outdoors as much as possible!!
