End of Season

It was a stunning morning in the Delaware Valley, so we decided to head out to a local park and stroll a bit. Bump is at an age where he does not want a stroller, but he did a terrific job walking the trails and I’m looking forward to taking him to my two favorite parks next Summer, Valley Green and Palmyra Nature Cove.

It was a nice laid back way to bring this season to an end. My wife starts teaching tomorrow and our new school year schedule will bring a serious adjustment of our weekly workflow. I can’t say that it feels like the end of the Summer, though, as it feels like it’s really March 178^th^.

I got to capture some photos as we strolled, this is my favorite. These remnants of old trees in the wetlands are a lovely, and sobering, image of the cycle of life. Maybe if we paid a bit more attention to images like this we’d live with a lot more humility and gratitude.
