Pre-breakfast tai chi session. Getting in/out of maxi-vans. Driving about 15 miles, for approximately 2 hours. Limited walking and standing required.
At 8:00 a.m. in the Mayflower Dining Room, the breakfast buffet offers choices such as scrambled eggs, sausage or bacon, hot and cold cereals, fruit bar with yogurt and granola, bread for toast, milk, juice, coffee, tea, water.
Before breakfast, we will enjoy a tai chi session that promotes strength, balance, and peace of mind. After breakfast, we will start with our first session, delving into the botany of a flower with our instructor. We will discover the scents, colors, and characteristics of these naturally beautiful additions to our landscape. After a mid-morning break, we will look back in history at our obsession with flowers, culminating in the Dutch bulb frenzy of the 1600s.
In the Mayflower Dining Room, the lunch buffet includes a full salad bar, soup of the day, sandwich, dessert, coffee, tea, and water.
We’ll have some downtime to enjoy recreational opportunities available on campus such as waterfront activities, hiking, canoeing, and enjoying the beauty of the season. Afterwards, we’ll set out in maxi-vans to see the six covered bridges of Cheshire County, all within a 10-mile radius of Pilgrim Pines. The six bridges are all National Historic Landmarks and help to frame hundreds of years of local history and culture.
