Vaughan Woods State Park and Hamilton House - South Berwick
Our trip in yesterday's lovely weather was to Vaughn Woods State Park, which is next to Hamilton House, one of my favorite places in Southern Maine. (They were once the same property. While the state was happy to take the Woods from the Vaughn Family estate, they didn't want the upkeep on Hamilton House, so it went to Historic New England.)
Vaughn Woods is a really nice little park, with several walking trails paralleling the Salmon Falls River. There's also a path up to Hamilton House, which is very sleepy this time of year. It was strange to see the gardens there with so little in them. It'll be an interesting contrast when we're able to make it back there later this summer.
