Goat Hill Overlook Sign

Local Entertainment

Many of you know that I live in a touristy area, and recently, someone posted a question to our local community forum on Facebook.  She was visiting this area for 10 days with her two young children, and wanted to know what activities she could do with her children during their stay for $10 or under.

Amazing List of Activities

The response was overwhelming including a lot of hiking spots that even I hadn’t heard of, like Goat Hill Overlook with an amazing view of the river and New Hope across the river:

Just taking a selfie with one foot on the NJ side of the Lambertville/New Hope bridge and one on the PA side seemed like a fun activity.

Over 30 years ago, Thaddeus and I were looking to buy a house and mostly we were looking to purchase in the area between where we were both working (which would have put us in the Bridgewater, NJ area), but when our friend Bruce showed us our current townhouse, we knew that a longer work commute was worth living in an area that was so much more satisfying.

We’ll be out on the towpath on our bicycles at least a few times this week…it makes living in this area seem like we’re on an endless vacation.

We are truly fortunate to live here.

Current Knitting

I ended up finishing two project since

Yes, I finished (and washed and blocked) the Ribbed Lace Wrap in Koigu KPPPM.  I also knit another Latvian Braid Band Hat.

The Koigu wrap ended up being about 75″ long and 10″ wide before blocking and 20″ wide and 68″ long after blocking.  It’s a very open and lacy design that will be able to be wrapped in many ways.

I also like the hate design, although I should never model hats.
