Last week I took a thoroughly relaxing lunch break at Rutgers Gardens. Yet another perk of making your own schedule. Somewhere along the way I lost my fork in the bamboo forest. Forking unbelievable! Lucky for me Jeff Heckman happened to have bamboo chopsticks for me to borrow. Once lunch was over, I trekked over to a creek where we had spotted a Great Blue Heron earlier.
