Frogs, frogs, frogs! One of the highlights of our summer in the Cape is our annual frog spotting trip to Ashumet Holly preserve. We take the kids and walk around Grassy Pond and count the number of frogs we see. Every year we somehow manage to see more. Last year we thought we had seen more than we ever could with 63 spotted (yes over 60 frogs!). This year with the unusually warm winter, the growth was very thick, making spotting very difficult. Additionally, the US is in drought this summer so the pond had receded and the water was further from the shoreline. All this and we still managed to break our record, with 67 frog sightings this year! The best part was my cousin's son, who is 6 years old requested to hear the Olympics theme song since we broke our record, followed by his second request, our national anthem! Our first time here, we also saw three snakes, a garter snake, water snake and this many years later I don't remember the third (maybe a black snake?). The trail is overgrown with poison ivy, of which I am highly allergic. If you pay attention, you can avoid it. Th fee is an honor roll, donation box by the main field.
