The weather was nice the day after Thanksgiving, so I decided to take a walk at Bellevue State Park, just 5 minutes from my home in Wilmington, Delaware.It was calm and quiet, not many people on the walking track. In warmer weather, there would have been more visitors than the few I saw playing Frisbee golf, or the 2 people who were fishing in the pond. Yet the reflection of the stone wall next to a bridge caught my attention, so I am sharing it with you.Hope you had a great Thanksgiving.From Carolyn Roland, Your Older and Historic Homes Resource in Delaware and Southern Chester County, Pennsylvania.

Settled since 1609 by voyagers from England and claimed by the Crown since then, Bermuda is a mix of cultures still retaining the distinctive touch of the British Empire.  Although friends advised me to wait until warmer weather, I was ready for a trip to this island 995 miles from the shores of South Carolina. (left, Royal Dockyard) It was interesting to me that the limestone blocks from which the buildings and walls on either side of many roads resemble the “tabby” from which many buildings in Savannah Georgia are built. They contain bits of coral and it turns out that Bermuda is the northernmost limit for coral growth. And yes, I spent time studying the information presented  in the natural history museums of the island!Speaking of native materials, I got to stay in an inn built in t...
