A Stroll Through Town...

With the season winding down and my impending 9-5 schedule looming, I'm fitting in as much fun as I can with friends. A rendezvous in Clinton is always a perfect choice. Tree-lined streets, quaint shops, restaurants, art museum, sidewalk bands...what could be better.

You'll see this Red Mill often on my's one of NJ's most photographic subjects. Soon to be the Haunted annual fundraiser that helps with the upkeep and operation..going on it's 200th year! Wildflower fields around town...

It saddens me to see this 'Closed' sign up for the duration.
Wouldn't you want to come home to these pretty front porches...
One of the many churches in town. Interesting movie trivia...this was the cemetery used in the ending scene of 'One True Thing'...remember with William Hurt, Meryl Streep...a tear-jerker!
We spent all afternoon laughing and giggling like teenage girls! And a long stroll through town was just what we needed after indulging in a delicious lunch...with desserts! Diet, what diet?? Girlfriends are the best!!
I would've taken more photos but my camera conked out. Next time....


  1. What kind of flower is that in the first wildflower picture, the reddish-purple one? I feel like I should know, but I can't figure it out.

  2. Hehe, stumped ya huh Mr_Subjunctive? You should know it, it's the common cosmo...yeah! They are often included in wildflower seed packets. I found these shades to be a little unusual too!

  3. It is always great to meet up with girl friends and have fun. When you are still laughing and giggling, this shows that one is still young. I love the wildflowers in the field. They are so pretty.

  4. Ah. That explains it. The only ones I've actually seen in person were shades of orange. I mean, I knew there were other colors, I'm just not directly familiar with them.


  5. What a beautiful town! A quiet one? I like the way they decorated their front porches. Enjoy your weekend Lynn! Oh, I hope the boat will be there for you next time.

  6. How fun and what a pretty place to get together! I love these types of smaller towns with the old fashioned charm. I love all your pictures!

  7. Hey! I know these places... The Red Mill, anyways.
    Aren't moments with your "girls" the best?
    And a scene from One True Thing was filmed right down the street from my parents was The Family Stone.

    Have a great weekend.

    Peace - Rene

  8. I so would love to come home to such nice walkways. Very lovely pictures. That mill will be a great haunted house.

  9. So glad you had some fun giggle time, with dessert even! Love the wildflower captures, the angle is spectacular! :-)

  10. Autumn Belle, young at heart is the easy part! Thanks for visiting ;)

    Hi Stephanie, boat rental will re-open next Memorial weekend but there's always fun shopping to do on Main Street.

    Thanks, Catherine!

  11. Hi Rene, I knew Morristown was one of the movie's location. Pretty cool! Well, maybe you have to come do the Haunted Mill one Halloween...I volunteer with set painting and doing make-up for the spooks. Hope your school week flew by...enjoy your weekend, too ;)

  12. Lynn,
    stunning post!
    love the red wildflower pic!

    your depth of field is to lie down & die for!


  13. Hi Lynn,
    I am just sighing over that photo with the sidewalk and the flowers on either side. So stunning!
    Thanks for sharing these photos. Love 'em.

  14. The red mill is really pretty and looks like something I remember seeing in Rhode Island. I also really like the photos of the wildflowers - so nice! hey - are you going to the philadelphia flower show?
