Before tears were shed and goodbyes were said, a few of the REU students went for ice cream at Carter and Stevens, a local farm store.
C&S is famous for their Friday night cookout, where they serve burgers, corn, and fresh veggies roasted over the fire.
With none of Tim's delicious cooking at Harvard Forest and no reason to buy groceries since everyone was headed home the next day, a few of us went to chow down on locally-produced beef and delicious grilled veggies.
The evening ended with eating fresh homemade ice cream, feeding the cows, and playing on the swings. It was a low key event - a wonderful and relaxing way to spend our final Friday night together.
