Avenue of trees

Plane trees line Battle Road, so called for the nearby Revolutionary War battlefield where George Washington defeated British troops in 1777 (shortly after he crossed the Delaware).

A lovely photo that belies its fascinating history. I like the look of your blog and will come back often to learn about Princeton.

What a surprise. I expected to find photos of London from your moniker but here we are in Princeton. Lovely photographs and enjoy the history lesson too. Cheers.

This looks like a beautiful walk, a place to contemplate who came before.

LOLfromPasa and Ace -- thanks so much, and yes, the moniker is a tribute to our faraway roots (I'm from Honolulu and Mr. L is from London!)

Petrea -- true true, sleepy little towns are very good for long walks!
