Sunday Walk By the River

After Mass this morning Ron and I decided to a walk to the river.  Here in Newburgh is a lock and dam where the barges move up and down the river carrying coal, grain and oil.  

This morning we hit the jackpot.  There were barges coming and going.

Farther along on our walk we encountered some very lovely blossoms.  

We met this handsome Gentleman along the way, watching to make sure he safely crossed the road.

No walk is complete on a Sunday morning with out a stop at Ben and Pennys.  And this morning was no different.  Ron had a warm carmel apple cookie and I had maple walnut scone, both topped with a 
small scoop of vanilla ice cream

Then these flower pots reminded me that this is the last weekend in August and the door is now opening onto the an autumn porch. It has been a summer of saddness and joy for us but all in all God has been gracious.

Thanks be to God!


Please visit Judith at Lavender Cottage for Mosaic Monday and share in the beauty offered there.

I will also be joining Laura at I Heart Macro to day too.  Why not stop by and enjoy!

As an aside, I've been invited to  join Monday WRites by Gillena Cox.  Since I'm not prepared for that today I thought others of you might join her in this adventure.

  4. You did hit the jackpot ... barges, beautiful blooms, a very handsome turtle and yummies! A very successful walk. Fun post. Happy Monday!

  5. Such a lovely post. I feel like I got to enjoy this beautiful walk with you! Love that cute little turtle and those pretty blooms. Nice to see someone stopping to enjoying the little things in life. Have a great week.

  6. How nice that barges are still used to carry goods on the river. That used to happen in the UK, but now no more.

    Great pictures Cathy. It's like being on the walk with you. Thanx.

    God bless you and yours.

  7. That potted flower is stunning!!! And the cookie topped with a scoop of ice cream...oh how delicious. The flower collage is beautiful and the barges along the river flow ever so silently.

  8. Cathy that is a perfect way to end your wonderful walk shared here....

  9. I think sitting and watching the barges would be a nice way to spend an hour or two after church especially if it ends in the treats you two had. Yum! You found some cheerful yellow flowers too I see.
    Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday Cathy.

  10. How pleasant to walk beside a river!

  11. I just mentioned you in a comment as they on Google Chrome do not attach blog names with name names and you left a sweet comment like you have done in past, but to try and get to who owns what blog is not always easy. Thank goodness for sharing times on the same memes and your share was wonderful BTW, happy week to you~
