Today I chaperoned Sam’s class on their field trip to the Ipswich Wildlife Sanctuary and learned all about maple trees, maple sap and maple syrup. It was pouring rain and not very warm, but still a lot of fun. I had my camera in a ziploc bag and took a few shots outside but can’t share them because I don’t have permission from the parents of the children in them. This one was taken inside the shed where they boil the sap down and turn it into syrup. It was so warm and steamy that I couldn’t actually see through my viewfinder and had to manually focus.
