Pumpkin Spice Lattes in Bethlehem

The air had a distinct smell as the afternoon sun baked the moist grass and newly fallen leaves. The breeze had a chill and the crispness was welcoming after the humid summer. It is fall in the Lehigh Valley. The first best thing about fall is the colors – the trees changing their clothes to vibrant reds, yellows, and oranges that glow in the daylight.

Easton Heritage Day

Petticoats, stays, and stockings. Breeches, garters, and wool coats. It’s a hot summer day as the beer pours, birds chirp, and the water splashes in the fountain. Muskets lean against display tables, red coats drum in alleyways, and soldiers lay in the grass with their tricorne hats covering their eyes under makeshift tents.

He then playfully flipped onto his back, scooting his body around the moat. The goats anxiously stood against the fence. Their golden eyes watch every move; twisting the vending machine knob, lifting the metal stopper, and letting the feed flow into your palm. … Continue reading Zoo In Paradise

Hoover Mason Trestle

The old blast furnaces sit stagnant and aged as new life blooms in gardens on the trestle. Rust and decay hang like a peeling scab while the plants grow and thrive. The walkway was packed with excited residents to witness the view, while others were on a tour with a relative. As a past employee of Bethlehem Steel, the relative relays stories and points to a past still within … Continue reading Hoover Mason Trestle

Funk Brewing Company

You hear the train horn blow, the sound echoes through the brewery. Everyone looks up from their flights to see the railroad cars swoosh past. Moments later everyone returns to their flights, taking inventory of what they have left to try. You see couples sharing samples and delegating beers to one another. You also see the regulars squeezing up to the bar for a quick pint or growler fill. The … Continue reading Funk Brewing Company
