Can you see the whale?

Herman Melville’s view while he was writing Moby Dick. He saw a whale in these mountains. If you use your imagination, you will too. A very beautiful and peaceful place.

Our Christmas tree hunt has begun…

xmastreehuntEvery year it is getting harder and harder to find a good real Christmas tree. I’m not sure why.. maybe weather changes… big storms sweeping through our area… who knows! Lucy is learning how to find the perfect tree, but on this day she was more interested in finding the perfect clover! That is pretty important too 🙂

I love Purple…

Anyone know what this beautiful purple plant is?  It looks like a type of grass.  Very beautiful!  We saw them all over the grounds of Disney’s Animal Kingdom lodge. 

Winter Storm: Athena…

Winter storm, Athena, barreled through New Jersey and the Northeast this week. More power outages, downed trees, winds, and this time SNOW.. about 7 inches to be exact. Its been a crazy 2 weeks here in NJ. Fingers crossed that this isn’t a preview of how rough our winter will be! 

The upside… the snow was beautiful first thing in the morning 🙂

One last look at color…

Here in New Jersey, we’re bracing for hurricane Sandy to hit. So far things are quiet, but it soon won’t be! The anticipation is the worst part! Unfortunately, there are still so many beautiful leaves on the trees, that in a couple days will be gone… so here is one last look at some autumn color… stay safe everybody!

An autumn scene to pass the time…

 

Yesterday we made sure to get out and enjoy the fall colors before they’re gone! I feel like every year it passes quicker and quicker. So, enjoy the colors while they are here… and if you live somewhere that doesn’t have the colors of fall, make sure to enjoy them virtually 🙂
