Along the Tohickon Creek near Pt. Pleasant

Saturday morning, I went hiking along the Tohickon Creek near Pt. Pleasant, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. It was a mostly cloudy morning but warm enough for me to hike in sandals though wearing a lightweight windbreaker jacket.

As a kid I always thought ferns were a New Zealand plant. Now I know differently. However, whenever I see one I always feel it's a piece of home :)

Your pictures show the power of water. I like them all but the last one is my favorite.

Thanks, pat paulk. Glad you enjoyed my hike via my blog post.

Hi, san nakji. Isn't it interesting the associations we make to what is "home"?

Thanks photowannabe. The power of water is impressive and the last one is one of my favorites, too.

Thanks, moi. You're right - it is a pleasant area to be in. And I think a lot of people are partial to the last photo in this post. :)

Thanks, ginnie. Each season has its beauty. But I'm ready for Spring and for all the green and other colors it brings now. :)

Thanks, annie. It was a wonderful place to enjoy the beauty of nature and soothe one's soul.

Thanks, sage. It's suppose to get colder here tomorrow, too; but not that cold. We're suppose to get rain and maybe a thunderstorm but no snow.

Thanks, anna. Glad you enjoyed the pics.

Tim Rice said...

Thanks, mimmu. I'd like to go hiking many places in the world if I'd only had the time and money to do so. :)

Thanks, carmel. Hiking is so good for both body and soul. :)

Thanks, deals on wheels. You are one of many who like that one the best. :)
