Here is something different! Michele and I had the honor of meeting master sculptor Andrew DeVries at his River Studios on East River Road in Middlefield. His original art is inspiring with more than 40 sculptures on his new Sculpture Trail (dog friendly) open Fri, Sat, Sun 11 to 4. Trail is beautiful along the river and through old farm fields in the remoteness of the Middlefield/peru border. www.andrewdevries.com
