Ain't Nothin' Like A Summer Day ...


“Summer afternoon – summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.”
           ~ Henry James
                 ~ 1843-1916
Under the cool shade of trees in late August, a hammock I saw on a property along the Saucon Rail Trail, Hellertown, Pennsylvania paints a quintessential scene in sepia of a perfect afternoon in summer, my most favorite of seasons.

Ain’t nothin’ like a summer day!

A Trail Of Sugar ...



“What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.”
                          ~ John Steinbeck
                                   ~ 1902-1968
Traces of a Christmas Eve snowfall remain the day after Christmas to sugar the Saucon Rail Trail, Hellertown, Pennsylvania as sunset looms to close a beautiful but very cold day.

Patriotic Pony Bridge ...



 “Be in love with your life. Every minute of it.”
                    ~ Jack Kerouac
                           ~ 1922-1969
A man walks his dog across the historic and patriotically festooned 1860 Walnut Street Pony Bridge on a beautiful summer afternoon, painting a picture of the simple joys of life, and a reminder to enjoy every minute of it.

The bridge, built in 1860, is the last remaining cast and wrought iron bridge in North America. It is located on the grounds of the historic Heller-Wagner Grist Mill, just off the Saucon Rail Trail in Hellertown, Pennsylvania.
