Crum Woods

Hello Darlings,

I'm finally back after a quite uneventful weekend...chock full of some good old fashioned lounging about and plenty of time just enjoy my teeny little family.  It was wonderful!

During this past week spent in Philly, Albert and I snuck away for the day by ourselves and decided to meander for a bit...that is after a pitstop for a green tea frap.  But anyhow...we found a little spot tucked away under an overpass where a curious little trail began.  Yes curious...I am as curious as a cat, so of course we parked and got on our way to the trail, laughing, talking, laughing.  We didn't know much about this trail except for that it ran through a place called Crum Woods.  Not so far into it...I happened to glance down to my right, straight into a wooded area and noticed the tiniest bit of stone peeking out from down below.  So off the beaten path we went.  This is how it went and what we found...

Crum Woods

I was in total awe.  Such a mystical little spot...also somewhat eerie, but that only added to it's enchantment.  Smack dab in the middle of nowhere...below a bike trail and above a meadow.  What was it....we did not know.  After going home and doing some research...all I know is that it goes by the name of Crum Henge and was possibly part of an old estate that was demolished when the highway above it was constructed.  It's part of the land that belongs to Swarthmore College and apparently a couple years back some students held there very own performance of Macbeth here.  My, would I love to have been there for that!  We venture didn't any deeper into the trail or woods but there is so much more to uncover...from what I have read.  I simply can't wait to go back.


Hope your week is treating you quite swell! 

Love bunches,

  12. Such a pretty little spot! It makes me want to go hiking in the woods so badly. (Or my version of it, which is a 20 minute drive to the Adelaide Hills while we drink coffee in the car... hehe).

    I love how your outfit matches your green tea frappuchino :3

  17. Awe, Marisa, what a lovely and magical place! What a nice surprise to have found that spot! It makes me wanna put on my sneakers and try to discover one myself, hehe :).

    Love the way you've styled that dress! I am so, so, so not good at putting outfits together! Ever since I got chubby, I started wearing all my baggy dresses and haven't made an effort to try to look nice :/ ... And for some reason, belts don't seem to work for me so I always seem to be wearing a bag instead of a dress, ha.

    Hope you have a great day, girl! ;D

    Hugs!

    Miki.
