It’s 16 days before Christmas! I am so excited, I wonder what will hubby give me for Christmas? I wish it’s one of those Movado watches that I saw online. I really love to have a new watch as an alternate watch just in case if my other dress watch will stop working. I can’t go out without a watch, cause for me time is very important. I always check what time it is so I won’t loss track of the day. But anyhow, I am happy with anything that hubby will give me as long as it came from the bottom of his heart.
THe holidays are finally here! I bet you are searching for the best present ever for your love ones. Well look no far because slane.com might have the one you are looking for. Check out their collection of sterling silver necklace that are crafted so beautifully. I bet your special person would be ecstatic when he/she sees this under the Christmas tree. I would like to have one too, I so wish hubby will give me one for this coming Christmas Day.
Last Summer of August, my husband and I celebrated our 6th year of wedded bliss at the Poconos Mountain with our kids of course. One of the places that we went to was the Bushkill Falls. It’s nestled deep in the middle of Poconos Mountain that is not far from the Resort that we stayed in. It’s one of the the most popular place to visit in the area for those who want to relax and enjoy nature. My family and I really enjoyed our visit there. The kids had so much fun because they dont only get to see the Falls, but they were able to mine some gemstones, and other fun stuff like the mining maze, and the playground. We also had a picnic in their picnic area, grilled some barbeque skewers that we brought and had a wonderful dinner. I will write about it on my next post, as of now, I would like to share to you the Bushkill Falls. Below were some photos I took.
There were 4 trails to follow, we choose the yellow trail but end up following the red trail which is very long but cut it short when the kids were starting to grumble.
Anyway here are the trails that you can follow in Bushkill Falls.
- Green Trail – View the Main Falls from the green trail, which takes about 15 minutes to walk. No climbing is involved, however, there are steps.
- Yellow Trail – View the Main Falls, as well as Lower Gorge Falls, Laurel Glen and Upper Canyon, which takes 45 minutes to walk.
- Blue Trail – View Pennell Falls from the blue trail, which takes approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes to walk.
- Red Trail – View Bridal Veil Falls from the Red trail. This trail is for the avid hiker in that it spans almost 2 miles, includes all eight falls, and takes over 2 hours to hike.
My eldest enjoying the view as we follow the trail that will lead us to the Bridal Veil Falls, but we didnt make it that far because our feet were starting to complain. The trail was pretty long and the kids were making grumbling sound.
Bushkill Falls is a series of eight waterfalls, the tallest of which cascades over 100 feet (30 m), located in Northeast Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains in the USA. Beginning at the headwaters of Bushkill Creek, the water descends the mountain, toward the Delaware River, forming Bushkill Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, Bridesmaid Falls, Laurel Glen Falls, Pennell Falls, and three additional, unnamed falls.
Bushkill Falls is a popular spot for hiking and birdwatching. The area features a variety of trails and bridges that vary in length and difficulty.
On August 13, 2011, one person died after falling 150 feet into the falls. Two teenage boys walked off marked trails and one of the boys lost his footing and fell into the falls. He was pronounced dead on the scene. (source WIKI)
Traveling to different places and other countries gives you the chance to know and experienced other cultures in terms of way of living, food, events, and even music that plays different kinds of instruments that we have’nt heard before like the Marimba that is played by an Innovative Percussion Mallets. I never since such an instrument before in person, but I would love to hear its music online. I hope I can see a real one in one of my travels. Ive heard that it’s popular in Central America.
If you are a musician and searching for a fender deluxe power stratocaster in your favorite music store and it’s not available, well you might check online, I know you can find this kind of things cause a lot of website sell it. But you have to read the shipping policy though on how they ship the stuff. It is very important to consider it so that the item will arrive safely in your doorstep.
