Summer of Barry – The One Where It Rained A Lot

We’ve had very heavy rains the last 3 days.  I went down to the Creek to see what it looked like.

It’s muddy and the water is very high on the banks.

It was beautiful in its own way.  I’m just glad we don’t live near a body of water.

Autumn in the Forest

Not far from my American Home we have a forest that is actually a park.  To me it’s still a Forest…you know…trees and all.  Today’s Autumnal journey takes me to the Wissahickon CreekFairmount Park in Philadelphia,  Pennsylvania.

What is so great about Fairmount is the size of it.  It’s huge and filled with everything from history to natural beauty.

You can see how beautiful it is from my pictures but this is only a taste of what there is to see.   We only spent 20 minutes here today and it was amazing.

Even though it was raining today it only stood to enhance colorful landscape.  This is the beauty of my American Home.
