Kennett Symphony Orchestra Children’s Concert and Instrument Zoo

Our passion for music has taken us on many adventures over the past few years. Music has the ability to teach so much more than music itself. It has  taught us about people, places and ideas. It has inspired us. It has opened our minds. It has motivated us to…

Sunset Creek Walk

Sunset Creek Walk

It’s was a long winter on the US east coast.  We had lots of snow, lots of cold and very little outdoor fun.  I have been craving adventure and natural beauty (the kind you don’t need five layers of clothing to enjoy).  With our summer trips still a few weeks…

Swamp Creek Park-learning close to home

Swamp Creek Park-learning close to home

Spring is here and we are finally getting out and enjoying some of our favorite local parks.  One of our go to places is a small park just a few minutes from our house.  It appeals to us, in part, because there is a paved walkway (8/10 mile).  It is…

“We’ll always be together in the black and white photo.”

  “Picture you and me in a cabin by the sea… What the photograph don’t show, is where we’re headed tomorrow.  Even when we have to go, we’ll always be together in the black and white photo.” I fell in love with this song, Cabin by the Sea,  just before…

New York State of MInd

Nothing opens the mind like travel.  Exploring new places, learning the stories of new people, using skills we do not exercise in our “real” lives; these things require an open mind.  Our minds work harder when we travel.  We are challenged and educated and inspired. I found this to be…

The butterflies led us (slightly) south

The butterflies led us (slightly) south

Every year, one generation of Monarch butterflies makes an incredible journey from points  north, such as Canada and North America, all the way to their wintering grounds in Mexico.  We have been fascinated by their journey since we started observing them in the un-mowed portion of our yard. This year,…
