Autumn's Beauty

More Fall images from before "Sandy"...
October 27, 2012,
more of the calm before the storm.
Falling temperatures and diminishing daylight,
is helping these pretty trees to prepare for winter.
These trees were just starting to shed their colorful fall leaves.
I adore this pretty farm, in Howell Township.
It's hard to see the farm from the road
but they have several gorgeous horses, there to the left.
This is Spring Lake

We visit here all the time.

This is a large lake surrounded by a bike/walking path,
we bring the bikes here and it's a wonderful place to ride.

This is one of our favorite spots on the lake and one of our favorite trees!

In the last few weeks we have experienced summer temperatures,
a fall hurricane and a Nor'easter with 6 inches of snow!

But here at the Jersey Shore, we can handle just about anything,
mother nature wants to throw at us!

The rebuilding has begun and the transformation is already amazing!


  1. debbie and chuck, sittin' in a tree, k-i-s-s-i-n-g. :)

    some great fence shots in here, too.

  2. WOW! What a lovely spot and the colors....incredible! Glad to hear that you are in good spirits and your area is rebuilding. It's so hard and such a difficult time of year for so many. I pray that recovery is quick and families are safe with heat and electricity for Thanksgiving.

  3. I got a chuckle from Theresa's comment. Lovely Autumn colors and the lake is pretty. A lovely spot to ride your bikes. So happy to hear the Jersey Shore is recovering quickly.

  12. Just beautiful fall photos! But my favorite is of the two of you "sittin' in a tree". :0)

  13. I thought of missing something after reading TexWisGirl's comment.

    But there is "nothing" after "re-confirmation".

  14. Glad to hear rebuilding has begun and the shore will be back... bigger and better than before!

    Your favourite tree is in an idyllic spot (very romantic by the looks of things too).

  21. Lovely photos Debbie and such a cute one of you posing in the tree. It's so heart breaking to see the damage from Sandy, but it's so nice to hear that the rebuilding is happening. Hope you and your sweetie are well.


  22. What an abundance of autumn beauty. It's good to hear that your area is recovering.

  23. I am glad to hear everything is heading in the right direction Debbie. Have wondered how you and everyone affected by Sandy is doing. Your photos are once again outstanding.

  24. Lovely pictures and I am so glad that things are calming down a bit from the Hurricane. I felt such peace as I looked at the pictures. You have such a beautiful place to go and ride bikes and enjoy the beauty. I loved it all!
