A Slice of Heaven

"It is always the simple that produces the marvelous."
~ Amelia Barr

Twas a beautiful day for a ride, and the perfect day to pay a visit to my favorite place.

Tucked away at the junction of the Youghiogheny River, the Casselman River, and Laurel Hill Creek is the tiny, quiet town of Confluence. It's beyond special to me for many reasons, and as soon as I cross the "whistle bridge," as we so affectionately named it many moons ago, I am filled with a sense of peace and calm. Someday, I just might live there.

Today, was the seasonal opening of my favorite restaurant, The River's Edge Cafe. If a more serene place exists, I'd love to see it. Do yourself a favor and take a weekend jaunt to this historic town. I promise that you will be greeted with beautifully crafted homes (some in need of much love), welcoming bed and breakfasts, down to earth people, natural, old-fashioned landscaping, and the best sweet potato fries you'll ever eat.

If you're extra kind, and bring along your own loaf of stale bread, it's quite possible you'll make friends with one of the many delightful duckies that patrol the river. They quickly befriend those toting any type of carbohydrate treat.

The sweet joys of simple days with my favorite people.

Much Love,

Did that duck attack you? He looked like he might be after more than the bread. :) Wish I could go on these sweet excursions with you!

Love the photos. Did you see mine from NYC? Not a beautiful as your birds but the "Naked Cowboy" in Times Square was funny.

PS- Kate also took some video of birds hanging out on our air conditioner!
