Tuesday two weeks ago, I went for a hike at Swamp Creek Park in New Hanover Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. It was a warm sunny delightful day to be out and about in nature. Below are some of the sights from my hike.

A fallen tree trunk with a beauty all its own
I think this might be an older schoolhouse used prior to the one built circa 1850
On the 5th of July, many of my family and friends got together for a party over in Bedminster Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. It was a partly sunny day with an hour long shower thrown in just around mealtime. Below are some photos from the day.

Except for the last photo, all these pictures were taken in the past week or so. The last photo was taken early this Spring but is so beautiful that I still want to post it here. I do not know the names of all the flowers; but I do enjoy them anyway.
This series of photos from my hike in Stover's State Park and Tohickon Valley County Park, Bucks County, Pennsylvania gives me the feel of the John Denver song Sonshine on my Shoulders. The hike was so peaceful. And it reminds me of days gone by when I had more time to hike and roam.
Tuesday a week ago I went for a several hour hike from mid-morning to late mid-afternoon at Stover's State Park and the contiguous Tohickon Valley County Park in Tinicum and Plumstead Townships, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. It was a beautiful mostly sunny day. Below are some of the sights from that hike.

My main blog: Ramblings generally focuses on telling a story via photography and words. These stories generally center around family, nature, and church although sometimes just about life in general. I also have a blog entitled Fingerprints. I post less frequently in Fingerprints. It serves as a catch all of anything that does not go in my Ramblings blog including memes, quizzes, and reports on books and movies.
The road awaits
The road beckons
Time steps forward
Will we move
In step with time?
Will we step forward
Shaping our time?
Will we take time
To see the present?
Will we explore the past
And understand our heritage?
Will we laugh?
Will we wonder?
Will we touch?
Will we feel?
Time flies on
We have choices
Shall we go fast?
Shall we go slow?
We shall go forward
But we will choose the pace
We may dance with all our heart
Or bathe ourselves in a setting sun
