The survivor tree.

Not sure this little patch of green is part of the Cold Harbor Spring State Park. It locates north of Powles marina and southwest of the Lloyd Harbor main street. Two white swans swim leisurely in  the water as well with a few geese(?).

Fresh Pond on PL2

We started our hike from Pedestrian Loop PL1 @ Caumsett Park, and went down hill from the main house to the Fresh Pond.

A couple of beautiful white swans
