Travel Tuesday/Frenchtown New Jersey

                                                   ********TRAVEL TUESDAY********

Today is a "travel Tuesday" here on the blog, where images taken outside of New England will be shown. During our recent visit to New Jersey, our friends took us to Frenchtown....a very quaint little borough located along the shore of the Delaware River. The bucolic beauty of this little town made me feel as though I had stepped into a quaint little European town.

Even on a chilly December morning, the charm of this special little town can not be denied.

As we strolled through this town, and stopped at a few small charming boutiques, we ended up at the edge of town, where the Uhlerstown Frenchtown Bridge spans the Deleware River.

Standing in Frenchtown at the end of the bridge, you can see Pennsylvania at the other end of the bridge.

I have to tell you that New Jersey totally surprised me with it's beauty.

Liberty State Park, Jersey City New Jersey

Sorry for my absence over the past several days. I was away visiting some very good friends who moved to New Jersey. Today's blog post doesn't feature any scenes from New England.....but I want to share with you some of the places that I visited and photographed over the past few days. We will start this series of blog posts with photos I took at Liberty State Park in Jersey City.

It was a very windy and very chilly grey January day. Wish that I had gotten some better skies to photograph, but I did the best with what I had. This is a beautiful well maintained park that I can picture bustling with people and activity on a day with nicer weather, but on this particular cold and dreary day we had the place almost to ourselves.

We were just across the water from Ellis Island

As well as The Statue Of Liberty

More images taken from Jersey City will be shown in an upcoming blog post.

Great Blue Heron

Well, I failed to find a Snowy Owl again....I went out searching again yesterday. I did however find this beautiful Great Blue Heron who was in very close proximity to me.

Someone came along in a pick up truck, and I knew that the noise would scare the heron away. I was ready to get the flight shots......,

It would have been nice to get some Snowy Owl shots, but I am pretty happy to have gotten the "runner up" shots instead. 

One of these days you will see some snowy owl shots here on the blog.......and if you don't see any by Winters end, it won't be due to a lack of trying.
