SPECTACULAR FOLIAGE!


 





Welcome! Happy Sunday again. The house above is a B&B a short distance from where we live.  I thought today I would take you on a trip to the Poconos. Yesterday Roger and I took Lucky back up to his house high up on a mountain in the Poconos.


My daughter, Judi, did not go to Florida with the rest of her family last week due to health issues. She has  an autoimmune disease that has affected her lungs and other parts of her body. It all started about 8 years ago.  Erick and the boys  will be arriving home tomorrow. Our trip up on the turnpike was made very enjoyable because of the spectacular foliage! Here in Bethlehem we are very blah and our leaves are already dead and falling off the trees. Anyway, we certainly enjoyed our leaf peeping trip!πŸ’–

So, we left home, drove through our neighborhood to see if anyone had decorated for Fall, took a few pictures, and drove the hour or so up through the mountains and the Lehigh tunnel. I took most of the pictures from inside the moving car. The colors increased as we progressed.   We  ooohed and aahhed all the way.  I apologize again that my photos are all over the place. I just couldn't get blogger to put them where I wanted them to go. Grrrr.







We had a nice visit. It was quiet and pretty up on her mountain. They have the cutest little house with lots of land. It has a deck on the back that looks down on a lovely backyard and the beauty of the woods that backs on a game preserve.






Lucky was very happy to see his mama. We left there to head for Penn’s Peak that overlooks a huge expanse of mountain ranges. I must say we were disappointed though with the colors because the trees were mostly still green. And we were hoping to have a meal in their restaurant but there was a long wait due to social distancing so I took a few pictures and we moved on.










BLACK BEARS ROAM AROUND THE MOUNTAINS BUT DON'T BOTHER THE RESIDENTS IF THEY DON'T FEED THE BIRDS OF LEAVE THEIR GARBAGE OUT.


There’s a lake nearby but it's part of a private community.
















I hope you have enjoyed the colors and our day away. We came back, let our dogs out, drove into Hellertown (5 minutes away) to our favorite diner for a great meal, returned home and relaxed back into our normal routine. The cat came out of hiding (Lucky treated him like he was a squirrel) and all is well in our little world. 

Have a great week, stay safe and keep well. Much love to those of you who are suffering in any way. May God bless you with better health and circumstances.πŸ’–
