Traipsing In Belvidere Town ...


"Autumn carries more gold in its pocket
than all the other seasons."
                            ~ Jim Bishop
                                   ~ 1907-1987
                   ~American journalist, author
                                     &
                              New Jersey native
Traipsing through Belvidere, New Jersey on a golden Indian Summer day near Thisilldous Eatery ... and crunchy piles of autumn leaves perfect for traipsing through on this November afternoon!

Belvidere, one of my very favorite places, is a charming, Victorian town located on the banks of the Pequest and Delaware Rivers.

Autumn Cascade ...



"The music of the far-away summer
flutters around the autumn 
seeking its former nest."
                       ~ Rabindranath Tagore
                                ~ 1861-1941

Autumn cascades like a capricious
melody over a small waterfall on the Pequest River on a picturesque Indian Summer day in 
Belvidere, New Jersey.

The Pequest - Native American for "open land," -
tumbles down to Belvidere in a series of falls,
where it meets the mighty Delaware River,
of which it is a tributary.

Belvidere, one of my very favorite places,
is a charming Victorian town on the banks
of the Pequest and Delaware Rivers.

A River Runs Through It ...



"But memory is an autumn leaf that
murmurs a while in the wind
and then is heard no more."
                   ~ Khalil Gibran
                                 ~ 1883-1931

Leaves frame the autumn colors cascading across the Pequest River as it flows through the middle of town in Belvidere, New Jersey on a perfect Indian Summer day in November.

Irish Blessings ...


"An Irish Prayer"

May God give you ...

For every storm, a rainbow

For every tear, a smile

For every care, a promise

And a blessing in each trial.

For every problem life sends, a faithful friend to share

For every sigh a sweet song

And an answer for each prayer.

 

The autumn sunshine of a gorgeous Indian Summer day
smiles on St. Patrick's Roman Catholic Church, Belvidere, New Jersey.
The shamrock windows give a touch of an Irish blessing, with a
beautiful statue of Jesus Christ with his arms outstretched above them.

The cornerstone of this quaint, picturesque church at
327 Greenwich Street was laid in 1891.

Belvidere, one of my very favorite places,
is a charming Victorian town on 
the banks of the Pequest and Delaware Rivers.

Indian Summer On The Delaware ...



"Each golden day was cherished in the fall, 

for one had the feeling that each must be the last.

Tommorrow it would be winter."

                                             ~ author Elizabeth Enright

                                                              ~ 1909-1968

Indian Summer is my most favorite of seasons with it's warm
golden days and crisp evenings ... the best of both worlds.
And it was a quintessential Indian Summer day in early November
when I shot this beautiful vista of the Delaware River
from the Riverton-Belvidere Toll Supported Bridge.
The bridge, which opened in 1904, links Belvidere, New Jersey and
Riverton, Pennsylvania.

Belvidere, one of my very favorite places, is a charming Victorian town
located on the banks of the Pequest and Delaware Rivers.

The Gilding ...


"Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting

and autumn a mosaic of them all."

                                       ~ Stanley Horowitz

 

Some moments are golden, as when this man and his dog enjoy
a sunkissed Indian Summer afternoon on a path decorated with
gilded autumn leaves along the Saucon Rail Trail, Hellertown, Pennsylvania.

Indian Summerset ...


"There is a harmony in autumn,
and a luster in its sky."
                                  ~ Percy Bysshe Shelley
                                                   ~ 1792-1822

I love Indian Summer and its harmony
of warmth and crispness. On this warm
October evening, God paints the sky
with a lustrous sunset at
Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

You Light Up My Life




"We are like butterflies who flutter for a day and think it is forever." 
                                                                             ~ Carl Sagan
When I saw the sunlight filtering through the wings of these yellow butterflies on a beautiful Indian Summer day this weekend at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania, it reminded me of the 1977 Debby Boone song, "You Light Up My Life."
