Polly’s Cove Hiking Trail

Polly’s Cove Hiking Trail

It took me three tries, but I finally found  the Polly’s Cove hiking trail. And it’s not because it’s all that hard to find either. I don’t know what that says about me. We won’t go there, I guess.

And wee it was!  For the life of me,I cannot fathom two people…
