Only in Bucks County: Bristol's Delaware River

   I am absolutely in awe at the beauty of the Delaware River; even an industrial stretch of it like here in Bristol. Sure, you will see folks fishing from the wharf, recreational kayakers, and people out for a boat ride or on jet skis, but I've also seen HUGE cargo ships originating from places like Holland  and Hong Kong go by. Whether it's for sport, relaxation, or transportation, the river gets good use and the sunrises and sunsets can be spectacular. 

Here are just a few photos that I've taken since I moved in:

As cute of a town as Bristol Borough is, and as calming as the river is every time I see it, I feel completely aware that this town at the southern tip of Bucks County has its ties to an earlier time, and its evolution. When I stepped into the Grundy Library yesterday and saw this poster advertising an event they are having about Bristol during the Industrial Era, I knew I had to go!
