Perambulating the Bounds with Esther

947B6EA4-1E48-4B45-86B8-55FC993B11EEOn Mother’s Day morning, with snow still coating some surfaces in Manchester, Esther and I took a walk on the White Trail at the Bush Hill Preserve. It was a cold, bright, crisp morning for a walk. The trails are well-marked and well cared for. I learned about something known as perambulating.

Yes, that is snow, and yes, it is May 10 in Connecticut.

Explanation of Perambulating the Bounds

I have never heard this expression, and I was born well before 1979.

I am grateful to the volunteers at the Manchester Land Trust for all of the work put in to purchasing, preserving, and caring for open space.
