The sunset’s fiery kiss to the Hudson today on the second day of December stopped me short in my tracks. These spectacularly beautiful days are altogether unmissable. I want to trap them in my fists, shut ’em tight and hold time in my hands. How does one let go of these evenings of flaming oranges and lavenders, rose gold and smoky blues?

The Christmas lights are up. It seems that Bayonne with its worn-out air can also go ballistic with decorations. Less is clearly not more here.

The great affair in my life is to travel. I count myself immensely fortunate that my partner shares this passion. We are a team that likes to spend time planning and plotting out places to go. Destination check, flights check, accommodation check, cheesy grins check. Off we go.

  1. Your excellent photos accurately depict your beautiful prose. Flaming orange indeed! I also loved seeing the crunchy autumn leaves decorating the ground with their brick red and golden hues. But those Christmas lights and snowman brought a completely different smile to my face! Way to deck the halls – or front yard, as the case may be! -Lex

    1. Thank you Lex! I am loving the dry autumn leaves too. Yesterday I walked miles kicking my way through them. They are piled high on the pavements and I am glad they have not been cleared yet. I shall try and get more photos of this Christmas cheer in ol’ Bayonne 🙂 Cheers.
