Birdwatching in the Glades. I watched this couple a long time. They were not your tour bus condo commandos. She would frame her shot and he would brush the hair away from her face. And all the while the manatees were playing in the inlet and the pelicans were sitting on the dock and it was, even as park service workers aren’t getting paid, probably the most peaceful thing I’ve seen in a while. But maybe that’s because I’m a jersey girl, coming from the most stressed state in the nation. Ahhhhh #floridays #evergladesnationalpark #nationalparks #altnationalparkservice #findyourpark #optoutside #saveourparks #unescoworldheritage

Perspective: you can build a wall or you can build a bridge it all depends on the love you give if you build a wall your world is small but a bridge of love can conquer all—children’s song #rooseveltislandtram #queensborobridge #iloveny #bridge

One hundred years ago, Teddy Roosevelt died. While many of his policies were flawed, his love for America’s greatest idea gave us some of the lands that today, due to far more dystopian policies, are suffering irreparable damage. Not to overpoliticize a post, I leave you this quote, with yet another Cadillac Mountain sunrise, as it is one of my favorite haunts; “It is not a question,’ he said, ‘of politics or religion or race; it is not a question of affronting wealth or conquering capital, or of preserving the rights of the people; it is a question of justice and mercy, and I intend to get the best results.’ #saveourpubliclands #altnps #nps #cadillacmountain #optoutside #barharbor #acadianationalpark #nationalparks

It’s that time of year. Pull on those fuzzy pink boots and that bright red skirt and toss your three coins in the fountain. There are wishes to be made. #weneedalittlechristmas #shorthillsnj #christmaswishes #holidays #itsthemostwonderfultimeoftheyear #christmasspirit

City sidewalks.... Designed in 1872 by James Renwick, the architect of St. Patrick’s Cathedral, St. Bart’s was later embellished with a triple portal by Stanford White. During the enormous immigration of the late 19th century, St. Bart’s huge parish house on 42nd Street (built with the support of the Vanderbilt family), ministered to large numbers of the new arrivals, who lived in appalling poverty in the tenements of the East ’40s and ’50s...#manhattan #saintbartholomew #cityscape #citysidewalks #newyorkchristmas #ilovenewyork #citylights #holidays #church #christmas #nyc #nycchristmas #weneedalittlechristmas #newyorkarchitecture #deckthehalls #itsthemostwonderfultimeoftheyear

Oh, these vast, calm, measureless mountain days, days in whose light everything seems equally divine, opening a thousand windows to show us God.

On a hot day not long ago, this sister and brother attended a rally to draw attention to inhumane immigration practices. Today First Friends of NJ and NY celebrates a rare release, and we are working to cobble together necessities for a family leaving the detention center for a new home. #givegenerously #smallvictories #immigration #immigrantsmakeamericagreat #socialjustice #resist #buildbridgesnotwalls

Sulla montagna sentiamo la gioia di vivere, la commozione di sentirsi buoni e il sollievo di dimenticare le miserie terrene.

One of the legends about the origin of Lake Bled tells the story of young shepherds, who were shepherding their sheep on a big green pasture. There was a chapel in the middle of the pasture, where their sheep often wandered off to. The shepherds did not care at all about their sheep desecrated this holy place and did nothing to stop them from going there again. That is why god decided to create a lake around the chapel to protect it, and that is how Lake Bled, and the island with the church got created. #lakebled #slovenia #julianalps #discoverslovenia #bled #bledisland #feelslovenia #blejskojezero #church #landscape #assumptionofmarypilgrimagechurch #optoutside #beautifuldestinations #visitslovenia #iconicplaces
