Howling with Wet Wolves

Took the the commuter rail to Ipswich where I boarded the Ipswich Essex Explorer bus to Crane's Beach. Beautiful white sand and a spotless bath house. Then on to the The Clam House for an acceptable meal. The highlight of the day was a visit to Wolf Hollow , where I saw four wolves and one brown wolf/dog mix. There was a downpour so thankfully we were under a roof. The wolves got totally soaked and were very appealing. Cheese is their favorite food.

The director gave us a talk that lasted more than an hour and was very charming with explaining wolf pack behavior to the children. Wolf Hollow had been the idea of her late husband. It seemed a good deal for only $7:50. The Ipswich Essex Explorer bus cost $5 for unlimited rides including a walk on fee to the Beach. Tom, the driver, seemed to know everybody in town and was full of good cheer and excellent advice. The bus stops at so many other interesting restaurants, such as Woodman's, and historic house museums.
