Walking the Schuylkill River Trail 19 October 2018

For the past two times, I’ve walked to Manayunk on the Schuylkill River Trail, but today I decided to walk in the opposite direction and I walked to Conshohocken. Money is a little tight this week; I didn’t venture into Philadelphia and decided to spend the night in (it’s a welcomed change). I thought I would walk to Conshohocken to catch the train back to Norristown (to get to King of Prussia). I didn’t take many photos, but the view was just as gorgeous!

As I mentioned yesterday, the weather has cooled, and it was a joy walking. The leaves are starting to change, but I am hoping by Halloween that we will have full colour.

When I hopped off of the train in Norristown, I ran into an old library co-worker. She’s a sophomore at Temple University and it was so nice to catch up briefly!

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    It’s a beautiful mornin’
    I think I’ll go outside for a while,
    And just smile.
    Just take in some clean fresh air, boy
    Ain’t no sense in stayin’ inside
    If the weather’s fine and you got the time.
    It’s your chance to wake up and plan another brand new day.
    Either way,
    It’s a beautiful mornin’
    Each bird keeps singin’ his own song.
    So long
    I’ve got to be on my way, now.

    When I was young people did more walking and more standing than sitting. I am proud of you for discovering the joys of taking a walk.

    Ain’t no fun just hangin’ around,
    I’ve got to cover ground, you couldn’t keep me down.
    It just ain’t no good if the sun shines
    When you’re still inside

    I am also impressed that you changed your familiar pattern and tried walking in the other direction. It provided a refreshing change of scene with photo ops along the way.

    There will be children with robins and flowers;
    Sunshine caresses each new waking hour.

    On the train ride back home you ran into an old library co-worker and did some catching up, which put a nice cap on the day.

    Seems to me that the people keep seeing
    More and more each day, gotta say, lead the way

    I wish you a safe and happy weekend, dear friend JM!
