Autumn in The Pocono Mountains

The fall foliage was really poor this year around Pittsburgh. It was too long too late and the fall colors were sporadic. So I had to return to the vault to find a good image of the Autumn. This was takn a few years ago in Pike County Pennsylvania.

Finally Autumn

Finally, Autumn has arrived although the show from nature may not be as great this year because of the warm and dry weather. Searching the archives I found this. Taken a block from our old house in the Delaware National Forrest. The Pocono mountains are exquisite this time of year.

Catawba Island Ohio

When i was a child we spent a summer vacation on Catawba Island, We stayed in a rustic cabin along the lake. We took the Ferry to Put-in-Bay on Bass Island and visited the memorial to Admiral Perry celebrating his naval victories on Lake Erie during the war of 1812. It was a great childhood memory. This year we visited on my birthday and the area was still fantastic. I didn’t see any rustic cabins but instead exquisite waterfront homes.

We had a great birthday dinner at the 1812 Restaurant and visited the State Park and Marblehead Lighthouse. All in all it was a great trip and we plan to go back for a longer visit next year.

Spring Pond

North of Sandusky Ohio lies Port Clinton and Catawba Island. The island is assessable by bridge and from the island you can take ferries to the other islands of Lake Erie like Bass Island. Bass Island has a port known as Put-In-Bay and is the site of where Admiral Perry fought famous battles during the War of 1812.

On the east end of Catawba island is Catawba Island State Park. There are many trails, beaches and boat launches and this lovely spring pond we found along a beach trail.

Palm Reflections

This house sits on private property next to this small lake inside the Los Angeles Arboretum in Glendale. Imagine waking each morning and enjoying this view. Of course you have to deal with the sounds of tourists during the day and the loud honking noise of the peacocks. Still, I think I could handle it.

Reflections of a Pond

When I sit and gaze out at a pond and see the reflections on the still water it causes me to empty out my head of random thoughts. I am drawn into the reflections as if they were an alternate world to this one. I can’t not help but wonder if in that other world, someone is gazing back at me.

Duck

We came upon this little guy at The Los Angeles Arboretum outside Glendale, California. I am not a duck expert but I never saw one before that had this blue stripe badge on its side. I thought it unusual and hope one of my followers can educate me on what type of duck this is.
