Lake Nockamixon

Naji and Kaish LOVED going to

Lake Nockamixon this summer.

We would play on the docks.

nockamixon You know, just basically enjoy Summer days!

and Fall is upon us.

nockamixon 3It is fun to look back and remember the fun!

nockamixon 2 “For a long time it had seemed to me

that life was about to begin - real life. 

But there was always some obstacle in the way. 

Something to be got through first,

some unfinished business,

time still to be served,

a debt to be paid. 

Then life would begin. 

At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.”

~Fr. Alfred D'Souza

Mz. Booshay asked on Friday at Pioneer Woman Photography

to take a picture that represents fall with some bokeh.

I tried my hardest!

You know how hard it is for me

to NOT  put a face in a picture, right?

Nearly impossible!

Which month of fall is your favorite?

I love October because I love Halloween.

What a fun post...I will miss summer, but am so glad fall is here. I love the fall. October is so fun preparing for Halloween and then trick or treating with the kids. They are just so happy and it is one night guaranteed to be filled with family!

mamamia said...

september. I love the sound of it.

Jennifer Bowen said...

I love October, especially in New England. I miss my hometown. =( I love the third photo... beautiful sun flare. Great capture! Oh, and I responded to your message on my blog. Just send me the photo, ok? =)

Rosina said...

Ahh..too bad where I live, it is the sameness all year round. Right now, today, it was 95 degrees. But you've got to (try) to love Southern Cali, right?

I used to live in New Jersey, and miss the seasonal change terribly. I also remember when it was around this time of the year, I really missed summer already, but definitely ready for the cold.

What beautiful pictures, by the way. The place looks so beautiful!

Busy Bee Suz said...

Yes, I imagine this would be hard for YOU. But you did good. I love seeing the boys play and enjoy themselves.
My favorite month of fall? YOu mean there are more than ONE?? Down here in hot florida, we dont get to feel much fall at usually lasts about 18 hours just after Thanksgiving. :)

Susan said...

Those are some beautiful pictures. I love the one of the one red leaf among the green ones -

My favorite fall month is September - one reason is because my daughter was born in September, but the other reason is because I just love how the weather begins to change in the fall (usually) and all the beautiful colors of fall....can't wait to see those leaves changing.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today, come back anytime. I love new friends. Hope you have had a great Saturday.

Helen said...

Beautiful pictures, I love the red leaf and the one of the boys hanging out on the dock.

October is definitely my favorite month of Fall. My niece was born in October, my wedding anniversary, and Halloween... it's just a good month!

Lisa @ Boondock Ramblings said...

These photos are amazing. The ones of them jumping off the pier and wading in that water...just great.

Thank you so much for the kind words on my blog at Views Beyond the Lens. Much appreciated. Feel free to stop by my other blog as well if you like.

I love your photos and know I will keep returning here for more!

Stephanie Faris said...

What incredible photographs.

October is definitely my favorite month. Of the entire YEAR!

Alicia said...

Say that name 10 times! Nocka-what????

Again, wonderful pictures Rebekah!

Do you have an photo gallery at your home? Seriously!

Big Mama Cass said...

Those are fantastic pictures. Brings back lots of memories for me from living on Lake Wisconsin.

October is my fav, for sure! :)

Baloney said...

Great pics.
I love October. A combo of warm days and the first hint of the cool ones.
And I really, really love Halloween. Really. :)

Grandma J said...

October is my favorite. Two of my kids and one of my grandkids have birthdays,and that's when I usually go back to So CA to visit.

Julie said...

I love Fall too, but I I am still waiting for it to arrive... lol. It would be nice to have a warm up of coco and a sweater here and there... we are waiting!
Love the pictures... so fun to look back and remember

Suki said...

It's really weird around here lately.
The fall hasn't even begun yet. We still have warm sunny days like the last days of summer and I suddenly realized this week that it is actually the end of September.
Last year it was a lot colder at the same time of the season.
Although I like the chilly weather.

Marilyn said...

Sept. and Oct. are my favorites. November gets cold and December is hectic and almost winter. I love your pictures. I agree, faces are hard to resist. You do good work and always have a thought provoking quote. The favorite thing I like to tell my husband--now that we are retired--is: Today IS someday.

Half Gaelic, Half Garlic! said...

Great photos....I have not been to Nockamixon in a long time:)

Fall is my favorite season, but if I had to pick a favorite month....I would say october. By october the colors are just GORGEOUS!!

So are just like is very hard not to put a face in a picture:)

Enjoy your Sunday!


jenny said...

Jenni Jiggety said...

I like October the best because I am too busy in September to really enjoy it!

Whimsical Creations said...

I love October. The colors are amazing in WNY in October.

Beautiful photos!

Sonya said...

YAY, I love it when you post your sunday's in the city..I just love your pictures.

October or November is my favorite I think..only because it means Im one step closer to being able to get out my christmas decorations and buying the tree! Have a fabulous sunday:)

ellen abbott said...

I don't have a favorite month. I just love this planet in all it's versions.

I love the pic of the acorns and the one in your previous post of the kid with all those freckles! And the previous post to that, you have some handsome boys.

Thanks for visiting my blog and for your nice comment. (Now you've got me wondering what my comment was that brought you.) anyway, please visit again.

Danielle said...

I love that quote!! I have never thought about it like that but I think that fits me!! Thanks for sharing it!

I don't think I really have a favorite month in the fall. I just really like it all!

septembermom said...

I love September! What a wonderful quote and as always, outstanding photos! You are so good with the camera :)

Joanna Jenkins said...

The Lake looks so calm and inviting! I like November the best, maybe because of Thanksgiving.
Thanks for sharing!
Have a great week.

Reb said...

October is my favorite hands down because of the autumn colors and Halloween. Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving me some love! I am loving your photography and your blog is so fresh, unique and beautiful. I will be back! Cheers, Becca

October is my favorite month, but I enjoy all of them. Your photography is outstanding! Just beautiful, I so enjoyed all of them.
Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such a sweet comment.

October is my favourite month as well. Fresh Fall days, coloured leaves and my birthday all arrive in October.

Great bokeh photos, you should have snuck a face in the bokeh :).

Thanks for stopping by.

Kimberly said...

Thanks for the comment, I love your photography!! Beautiful!

My favorite month is October, because here in the Pacific NW, November is when the daily rain really seems to begin. In October it's still above freezing at night and we begin decorating the house for fall and Halloween. I have lots of good memories of new beginnings in the fall, it's my favorite time of year!

LOVE the pictures at the lake. I miss swimming in lakes but all the ones here have alligators. Pass!

P.S. I was SO happy to wake up this morning and feel a chill in the air. We're not there yet but I LOVE Fall.
