Only in Bucks County: Photos around Yardley's Lake Afton

Forget the Borough or the canal path! 
My FAVORITE part of Yardley is along Lake Afton between St. Andrews Church and Starbucks. It is so visually interesting to have a lake right in the middle of Yardley. 
Well, actually... it's a man-made mill pond, but still, any lake would serve as a great visual when it's in the center of a town. Another thing that attracts me to this area is the "Old Library by Lake Afton", which I found out was built in 1878. It is the cutest little Victorian building! Probably one of the most adorable little libraries on the East Coast.
I also photographed St. Andrew's Episcopal Church, a gorgeous stone building with scarlet red doors, which was also built in the late 1800's.
Here are some just a few photos from a walk around that part of town just before sunset on a very cold March day. The lake was still frozen, but maybe... just maybe... spring is in the air.

  1. Awesome photos! I wonder if that little library is ever open for a tour?

  2. Wonderful pix. I like the duck with the blue on it. Fergie probably did too.

  3. Very cool photo, thanks for sharing! It looks like a great little treasure
