Fox River Forest Preserve in Port Barrington, IL provided us with much needed serenity after a busy work week. Situated along the Fox River, our hike yielded stunning water views. We found the preserve to be very alive with birds, so bring along your binoculars if you visit. We paused from time to time to scan the shore across from us and spotted a heron. So, take a peek! There also is a heron and egret rookery.

If you have been following this blog for awhile, you know that I have an affinity for chocolate. So, I definitely had to make a new chocolate discovery on our recent trip. I checked for something en route and found Maumee Valley Chocolate and Candy in Maumee, Ohio not too far from Toledo.

Valley Forge National Historical Park in Pennsylvania was one of the first historic sites I visited as a child. The struggles faced by General Washington and his men during the winter encampment of 1777-1778 forever left an impression on me. During our recent trip out to New Jersey, we had just an enough time to make a stop at this significant site. The site is incredible both for learning about the founding of our country and enjoying nature.
