I thought that Autumn came and went

as winter spread its clenching hand
Blue Ridge Autumn Best

but Indian summer lingered

 

Remember

leaving love notes upon the land.

Vacated Bluebird House

I am here.  Please don’t forget me.  I am here.

Sailing Along

We were drifting along a river and the journey was quiet and smooth (if you don’t count the Locks the first night).

Great River View

I was expecting to see the worn out industrial sides of German towns like from a bus or a train in the U.S.  But we must have passed those city undersides at night because the views were of the never-to-be-forgotten other-worldly variety.House View from Ship

Red Church from Ship

There was a song written in 1912 entitled “Moonlight Bay” often sung in a Barbershop Quartet style.  It  was one of a number of early 20th century songs used as titles for musical films made by Doris Day in the late 1940s and 50s.
