Great trip to Bombay Hook NWR for fall migration. You haven’t seen a sunrise until you see it at Bombay Hook. Always spectacular! Some hints for visiting: Hilton Garden Inn, Dover: Really great place to stay that is on Route 13. About 5 miles to the Waffle House and a 20 minute trip to the […]
More images from the Sony A65 in very low light. ISO 1600. As in, so low the only light was from a fireplace and a couple of lanterns. I didn’t expect it to do this well, especially hand-held.
This year is the 100th anniversary of World War I. We went to a living history day to see World War I reenactors. Both of us had grandparents that fought in WWI so this was particularly interesting in a family history sort of way. Also our first opportunity to exercise the new ‘old’ A65 we […]
It started out really sunny! But on the ride to New Castle the weather turned on a dime and became cold, windy and dark. This is one of the most harrowing trips in Delaware. The worst is probably a trip to Christiana Mall but that’s another post. I’ve lived all over the country and Delaware? […]

As sad as I am about the PHMC policies in recent years that have led to the relative fiscal abandonment of many Pennsylvania historic sites by the State, I’m happy to see the various […]
June 25-28th, 2015. A flotilla of tall ships will be down at the Philadelphia – Camden waterfront. A shame that the Kalmar Nyckel isn’t going to be there but there will be a 16th century vessel in attendance, El Galeon. I personally can’t wait to see L’Hermione, a replica of the ship that brought Lafayette to North […]
The number one reason to go to the Siege. WILLIAM THE AUSTRALIAN CATTLE DOG.
The most people I have seen at Brandywine Battlefield since the PHMC cut the knees out from under ALL the Revolutionary War sites in the State of PA. Of course if you want to visit the Log Museum or the Oil Derrick you are just fine. I’m sure that cutting out the funding for all […]
This past weekend I attended the Revolutionary War muster at the Colonial Plantation in Ridley Creek State Park. Great fun! It is a working 18th century farm with an onsite ‘farmer’ and ‘farmer’s wife’ that live on the farm and maintain it. They also have heritage livestock including a great sow with her wee piglets. […]
