Nativity Scenes

December a year ago, my wife and I went to Byers' Choice in historic Bucks County near Chalfont, PA which is famous for its carolers figurines and Nativity scenes museum. We really enjoyed looking at the Nativity scenes from around the world and the photos below reflect only a small portion of the many beautiful Nativity scenes on display. So with this post, I want to wish everyone a blessed Christmas.

Enjoying Nature Close to Home

On Wednesday, November 30, I decided to take a short walk to enjoy nature close to home. It was a beautiful sunny morning but invigoratingly cool. Below are some of the highlights from that walk.

 Anything other than brown leaves are a scarcity
but I found a little bit of color here.

 The over-abundant Canadian Geese - still beautiful

 A robin in a tree with berries

The robin up close - I think it is cold

An empty, deserted nest - its time has gone

A Hike at Nockamixon State Park

Back on November 2, I went for hike at Nockamixon State Park on the Bedminster Township, Bucks County, PA side of it. It started out as a somewhat foggy morning but developed into a beautiful, sunny, and warm day. Below are a few photos from that hike reflecting some of the last days of autumn. It was a great time to lose one's self in nature and let the world fly by.
