Day Trips!!

The hubs and I take a lot of day trips
and one nighters...(oh, does that sound naughty??)
 
You know what I mean, 2 days and one night away from the homestead.
 
In New Jersey, there are so many places we can go,
just for the day, and have a wonderful time.
 
This past Sunday we drove to Lambertville, New Hope
and Peddlers Village, in Pennsylvania.
Three distinctly different towns,
this entire area is about 1 hour from our home.
 
It's a beautiful spot, the weather was perfect and we had a super fun time.
 
It's a huge shopping area and I am not much of a shopper.
We wandered around and found some beautiful walking trails.
 
In Lambertville, we found a beautiful patch of morning glories,
 
in a gorgeous shade of purple.
 
I think these berries were part of the plant,
it looks as though they were hand painted by someone who loves color.
 
 
There wasn't anywhere to put the camera,
 so we could get a picture together.
 
We had the same problem at the Delaware River...
 
 this bridge connects Lambertville to New Hope.
 
Once we got to Peddlers Village,
 
 We found a spot for the camera and used the timer.
 
Finally, a picture together!!
 
I loved this windmill against the pretty blue sky,
 
and this gorgeous Koi Pond, loaded with fish!!
 
because as she said, there are a lot of hearts mixed in here!!

  3. What wonderful memories you are making! I love your pics - especially the way the morning glory is glowing from within.

    Did you notice they have heart shaped leaves? And so do the lilypads! :=}

  4. That's a great recipe for fun! Sharing it with someone you love... or a good friend, or someone you just picked up... well the last one is a toss up.

    Hmm... you need a tripod. :)
