Syracuse: The Pumpkin Patch

Two weeks ago I went upstate to see a old friend from High School.  We wanted to go pumpkin picking, so we decided to check out this local farm.  They had all different types of pumpkins ranging in size and color.  I almost got every color of the small ones so I could decorate with them around my house.  If you are ever in Syracuse, check it out! 

Maine: Part Two

On this part of my trip I went to see Fort Williams Park, which was one of my most memorable days in this lovely state.  This was due to the amazing lobster rolls we found at a food truck called Bite into Maine and also the beautiful views of the lighthouse.  If you are ever in Maine and need a place to relax for a few hours I would 100% recommend going to eat and walk around the park, during a nice, sunny afternoon.  You won't be disappointed!

West Meadow Wetlands Reserve

I've been always surprised with how much of Long Island was hiding in plain sight. I came across this beautiful area with my friend Jessica, she told me she had been wanting to go there for awhile. To get there, we had to cross two streams, the first being much easier than the second. After barely getting across, we started to explore!

At the West Meadow Wetlands Reserve we came across something unusual to see on Long Island, as you can see in the photographs below, it was a Cactus!  After looking around for about 30 minutes we started to hear a thunderstorm brewing, so we began to pack up our equitment and head back.  I will definitely be back soon to see what else I can find.  These are some of the photographs I took while exploring this nook of Long Island, Enjoy!

Lavender by the bay

Last month I went out east with my family to check out Lavender by the bay.  It was a wonderful experience that I would recommend to anyone looking for a bit of peace and tranquility.  Since  Lavender is my favorite scent and color I went along for the ride and I was in for a treat!  When we arrived we went into the field where my family and I were struck with the beautiful smell of these stunning flowers.   They were so powerful that turned whatever mood you were feeling into calming state.  What I found the most interesting was how many bees were here, but none of them would bother you.  They were just so enticed with the Lavender that they didn't care that someone was brushing by them.  Here are a few photographs from my trip to this lovely safe haven.  Hope you enjoy!
