Weekend Get-A-Way

Thanks to my wonderful mother, my husband and I were able to sneak away for a weekend retreat for our 15th wedding anniversary.  John planned the entire local escape.  It was the perfect, short-notice, close-to-home get-a-way.  We stayed at the Inn at Bowman’s Hill.  The service was impeccable, the expansive grounds were gorgeous, the food delightful, and the ambience, just what we were looking for.  Visit: http://www.theinnatbowmanshill.com/ to learn more about the inn.  It is a fabulous place to relax, celebrate, and connect.

During our stent away from the hustle and bustle of life with work and three children, we visited Bowman’s Tower.

To learn more about Bowman’s Tower and the history of the grand structure visit: http://www.ushistory.org/washingtoncrossing/visit/bowman.htm. The views from the top of the tower are expansive.  Buck’s County at it’s best on a clear, fall day.

After visiting Bowman’s tower and enjoying the beautiful scenery, we took our picnic blanket and bottle of champaign down to the river to enjoy the soft, relaxing sounds of the water lapping against the bank.  We had long conversations without interruptions, something that doesn’t happen often, and enjoyed re-connecting as a couple, rekindling our friendship, and reminiscing about the experiences the past 15 years have graced us with.  Here are just a few images of our afternoon under the canopy of fall colors.

Isn't she beautiful?

We ended our day dining next to the warm fire at Franciscos on the River: http://www.franciscosontheriver.com/.  Our nightcap was flour-less chocolate cake with hazelnut gelato.  It was exquisite.

Thank you John for the time celebrating US.

  1. Robyn, the pictures are beautiful! I’m so happy for you guys that you were able to sneak away for a retreat…I know you much you run around, helping everyone else…it’s wonderful that you guys could take a little time to celebrate each other. You both deserve it! (Congratulations on finishing “Insanity”, too….that alone deserves a vacation!!)
