Realistic Cooking Ideas

for Busy People! And sharing our life adventures along the way!

On Saturday Greg and I went to Letchworth State Park for a beautiful but chilly walk around their 3 main waterfalls and many smaller waterfalls. The leaves are just starting to change colors and in a week or two they should be at their peak. It was a cold day at 54°F that felt like 48°F. (That would be 8.8 °C!) It was warmer at our house since we had a bright sun that was hot. But once we got to our destination, we found that the sun was gone and there was a slight breeze. Greg dressed in his short pants and I thought he was crazy but he thought it was going to warm up. But it was colder there; though there were a few hardy souls in short pants. We stopped for lunch on our way there, which was difficult since there are very few places to eat. We both had hot tea, hot roast beef sandwiches and mashed potatoes. I am fairly particular about roast beef and the waitress said they were known for their beef. And since it was so cold we needed to start our adventure with some comfort food! The cover picture is a view of the Lower Falls and I will be sharing more pictures of that area in my next posting. The beauty of this area is a bit overwhelming because in a short distance there is so much to see! Below are the pictures I took when we first got to the park.

This year we are seeing a lot of acorns on the ground – to the point that you could have a smaller roller rink of slipping on them! Has anyone else seen an unusual amount of acorns on the ground?

Below are a few pictures on our way to the Lower Falls! The one picture you can see the tree that is almost falling off the edge – we notice from the erosion a lot of trees were close to falling into the water!

The below pictures are the unique stone picnic tables and fireplaces! The slate tops had to weigh a ton to move and someone took the time to carve them and make them smooth.

We wondered if the slate picnic table tops came from the below creek.

        🙂 Yes, but you have Downton Abbey and so many beautiful castles! The English countryside looks beautiful!!

        You are so right we always take the familiar for granted and hanker after the unfamiliar. 🙂 xx

        It is always fun to see what other countries have whether it is country-side, nature, or historic buildings. We tend to tear down old buildings to build new. But when you can find a historic mansion it is always a treat to take a tour. 🙂

        Yes that is so true.

  6. We have lots of acorns in SC too. Have heard people say it is a sign of a cold winter, but hope we don’t have another like last year. Looks like it was a really fun day.

    1. Bernice says:

      Oh me too! Last winter was bitter cold we don’t need a repeat! It was a great day – a bit cold – but you make the best of the weather. 🙂

  7. Oh my goodness! Wow, the photos and the scenery were amazing 🙂
    Thanks for stopping by and for sharing.!

    1. Bernice says:

      Letchworth tends to be overwhelming – in a good way – so much to see – you can’t take it all in. I have more postings on the middle and upper falls with pictures and videos. It is an amazing place! 🙂
