American Heroes Festival 2018

Kevin, the girls and I went to the American Heroes Festival, this evening. But we didn’t stay until the fireworks. The girls were bored and hungry already, before Sawyer Brown came on stage. And it was cold anyway. So we left early to have dinner at a local restaurant. It was nice to see Restless Hearts live, let the kids go on some rides and hang out with their friends. When the sun set, I captured some long exposures of the fair rides.

November Native Blooms In Our Frontyard

Even with last night’s cold snap, the plants are holding up pretty well. I covered up my Meyer Lemon tree, just in case it gets too cool for it. Our native plant are doing fine and dandy.

When Germany Became One Country Again

Today, Germany celebrates its 29th Anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall. East and West Germany became officially β€œone” country and therefore many people became reunited with their families, again. Since 1990, we celebrate Day of German Unity (Tag der Deutschen Einheit) annually on October 3rd.

Pieces of the Berlin Wall, I’ve got from a former co-worker in Germany several years ago.

Happy Fall of The Wall Day!

Autumn In Bill Allen Memorial Park 2018

It was nice taking a walk in the park, again. I haven’t been walking and hiking for quite some time. But since it is cooler, I want to go back to my favorite hobby: Nature Photography. So, I took a nice stroll in Bill Allen Memorial Park around noon today. I watched some birds and a few squirrels getting the fresh Autumn wild berries. A double-crested cormorant landed on the water surface of the turtle pond. It enjoyed diving in the water and came up at a different place of the pond, every single time. It was almost a game to guess, where the cormorant would pop its head out of the water, next. The trees show signs of Autumn as well. There is still a lot of green, but it is mixed mostly with yellow. Here and there are some orange and red spots visible between the other trees. And some trees already lost almost all their foliage. We might not get the Indian Summer like up north, but Autumn has still its beauty down here in the South.
