Meandering with MikeK in Tacony

You don’t have to be a Photo League member to come on my Photo Walks.

Meandering with Mike K in Tacony

Got rained out in April so trying again in September. 

Lets meet at Larndner’s Point at the foot of Leverick St. There is free parking here and at the end of Devereaux St. 

The trail is nice and views of river and bridge outstanding.  If the group is up for it I suggest we hop in one or two cars and ride over to Palmyra Cove Nature Park. Its free and quite extensive with frog ponds, egrets, birding stations, lagoons etc.

A good time to bring a long lens. There is a nature center building with exhibits.

Alternatively there is a linear park just north along Keystone St and then we could go to explore the Tacony Historic District. This was the neighborhood the Henry Disston developed for his workers. Housing, culture and recreation. The main street was Longshore Ave. Between there and Princeton Ave for several blocks are tons of historic houses and buildings.

So come on out  and get your nature fix. See you there!

$10 paid at start.  Free for first time attendees to my photowalks. Come along and have fun and get to know us.
