“ ...I love waking up early to the smell of fresh brewed Hazelnut Coffee and then wandering down to Wagamons Pond with our kittens Paris and Gorky. While they chase bugs, climb trees and take dust baths, I sit serenely and enjoy as nature wakes to the sun sparkling across the water. On a lucky morning, Huey, Dewey and Louie (our "pet" river otters) will stop by for comic relief and to say good morning... ”
