We'll all miss the days when Hochatown was the slow and quiet laketown (s/o to everyone that remembers Tooties), but that is no longer the case and it's time to make some radical changes. The section of Highway 259 from the Beavers Bend State Park entrance to the Cedar Creek Golf Course entrance is the furthest thing from being tourist friendly, and is rapidly becoming a critical safety hazard for pedestrians. I would like to think that everyone would agree that something needs to be done about the speed limit and/or lack of crosswalks, sidewalks, and traffic lights. If so please take a minute to sign the petition in the link in our bio. Thanks @hochatime for bringing this to our attention! ✌
My natural set point is happy, but I have struggled with walking the line of just how much I should share when I’m not in the happiest of places. This pic was taken 12 hours before my first Toughest Mudder (midnight start time) and I skipped a much needed nap to visit Salton Sea. It’s beautiful but there are dead fish everywhere. This was a year ago and I was NOT in a good place. I didn’t like this photo because I thought I looked sad. Now I see it differently. I love that it looks amazing but has a dark side to it. I love that it isn’t perfect and I’m not perfect. I didn’t know then that not getting what I wanted was exactly what I needed. That’s not the sort of thing that can be predicted, but I’m ever so grateful to be where I am today ❤️ Soul > Ego
For two decades, I've been fortunate to retreat to secluded Pocantico Lake behind my farmhouse in #pocanticohills ... with my dogs, loved ones, and a few photography clients who love nature.
This glorious #watershed , with abundant wildlife, has many of the appealing qualities of the #Adirondaks , yet its adjacent to #Tarrytown , in the heart of the #rockefellerpreserve , only a half hour from New York City.
So, today, it's a special honor to have my photos, and #paddleboard , featured as part of the Pocantico River Watershed Alliance's "Forum on Reducing The Use of Lawn and Landscape Chemicals." Quote from a speaker: "How many of us are walking across our #toxic lawns to get to our #organic#kale ?" ______________________
