In case you hadn’t noticed, it has been a bit quiet here – my apologies. And a life-sign: Hey, I am still alive! Just wanted you to know, in case you were wondering.
My niece is visiting and naturally I am taking all the time I can get outside of work to spend with her. Meaning no photo editing and no blogging.
Yesterday we went to Clinton, NJ, we found it in a Google search under ‘quaint town in New Jersey’. We also read that there was an old mill transformed into a history museum. So, after breakfast we suited up for the cold and drove to Clinton. I took lots of pictures, some of which you may find in future parts of David’s story. The old mill and surrounding settlement i.e. historic village with a shop and mining and farming equipment was just perfect and pretty inspirational.
This here is the Red Mill in Clinton NJ.
After taking our time checking out the exhibits, it was time for lunch. Naturally we took a walk up and down main street Clinton before deciding on a restaurant. After that and a quick stop to get groceries, we headed back home, but stopped at our local landscaping shop to get this year’s Christmas tree. Here is the very first iPhone photo, I am sure I’ll be taking and showing you more later.
After we got it home and put it into its stand to settle, Sonja (my niece) and I drove up to Skylands, Augusta for the annual Christmas lights show. It is a drive-through and, well, there were lots of pretty lights, but somehow we were a little underwhelmed. Oh well, you have got to try everything at least once, right? But now I am pretty tired and tomorrow is another Monday work day. So, I’ll leave you with a few of the pictures I took at Skylands. Have a good night.
Oops, nearly forgot, Leslie wanted to know what Christmas Eve looks like here. Well, we are having a European Christmas Eve i.e. any and all presents are given, received and opened on December 24. Apart from that I guess you could call it a tradition that since we have been together our dinner consists of sushi and sashimi. Other than that we’ll be lounging at home, by the fire, probably having champagne and/or wine and later on we’ll be watching a film. Yep, that’s about it. And now, good night for real (or good morning…) :)!
