October On Martha’s Vineyard…

100_4849

October is, in my opinion one of the most spectacular months of the year.

No place is better for experiencing it than on Martha’s Vineyard.

Nature provides a fiery display of color in October, the greens and vivid colors of summer have been replaced with the rusts and orange hues of autumn.

The Vineyard is a beautiful place to visit in the fall … there are plenty of activities to take part in or just relax and enjoy the cool, crisp, beautiful month of October.

Here comes October……

My 2016 Calendars …

I enjoy making my own calendars and have for a few years now.  I do a wall calendar which goes on the fridge, and a desk calendar which goes… um hmm, on my desk, smart huh 🙂

Covers of both calendars …

The cover of the desk calendar is of a stained glass window in a store on Martha’s Vineyard …extra points to anyone who can guess where – here’s a hint, it’s in Vineyard Haven 🙂

Walking Over The River …

Recently on my daughter Deb’s birthday we went for a walk over the Hudson River on the beautiful Walkway Over The Hudson,

(the above photo is from Google, all others are mine)

The walkway is in Poughkeepsie, New York… it was a former railroad bridge built in 1889, the bridge deck stands 212 feet above the river’s surface and is 1.28 miles long, making it the longest, elevated pedestrian bridge in the world.  The day we were there was sunny, cloudy, breezy, windy and as you can see still lots of beautiful foliage.   Here we go…

I want to give honorable mention to 14 year old granddog Chappy who never once slowed down and enjoyed every moment of the bridge walk. IMG_1696

This was so much fun and if it were closer than almost 2 hours from where I live I’d walk it more often.
