A couple years ago, my husband and I took a trip to the PA Wilds. The area is breathtaking during the fall color change. You can see vibrant yellows, oranges, and reds. It’s really quite remarkable. And now that fall is on its way out, it seems like a good time to remember the beautiful start of the season. So enjoy these awesome warm colors while you can and get ready to bundle up because winter is right around the corner.
The night crept up on us this evening. We had prepared to ride out in the
boat to a local island. However, the four of us couldn’t all ride in the boat at once, especially with all the gear. So, my stepdad (the captain) had an idea to basically ferry us over. My mom awaited at a local marina, as my stepdad drove my husband and I towards the island. On the way, we caught the glimpse of dolphins swimming near by. However, as we got further out from the bay we made the realization that the water was just too choppy. In the end it turned out to be a good thing, because dusk was creeping in quickly. We turned around and were dropped off at the marina where we had left our car and my mom awaited. My mom and stepdad took the boat back to the shore-house, as my husband and I picked up the car. We beat them home just in time to catch this stunning image of the two of them arriving. Although we may not have made it to the local island, between the dolphins and the sunset, it was definitely worth the short trip!
The end of daylight savings time reminds us that autumn is in full swing and winter is just around the corner. One of the things we love most about the season is the beautiful array of colors from fall leaves to festive gourds.
This photo was taken at the Haldeman Mansion Apple Fall Fest. It’s an annual event that takes place in Bainbridge, PA every October. The mansion is a historical building, birthplace of Samuel Haldeman. The event offers attendees the ability to tour the grounds and enjoy old fashioned fun. And what’s a festival without some delicious eats!? There are a number of tasty menu items including the ever popular apple dumplings. You can learn more about the event by visiting the HMPS website.
Enjoy the fall season and get ready, because winter’s coming! And no, that’s not a Game of Thrones reference.
