If you walk down by the Delaware River, you will find numerous geese, ducks, swans etc. This goose decided to have a dance with my hubby. Who knows why-maybe it was a mating dance :-)
My husband really isn't this doofy, I don't know quite what was going on here.

Lambertville - ShadFest 2006
Lambertville is a charming little town along the Delaware River. Numerous art galleries, antique stores, and Victorian style houses and buildings make this town and its sister town across the bridge in New Hope, PA a worthwhile day trip from the NJ and eastern PA area.
What prompted me to visit Lambertville is their ShadFest festival. It's celebrated towards the end of April to celebrate the return of the Shad fish up the Delaware River and the town's arts and cultural community.

A Day on the Delaware
Lambertville is a quaint little town on the Delaware River, right across from New Hope, Pennsylvania. If you're in New Jersey or the New York area, you might want to take a day trip here--it's nice to walk around, there are endless little artsy shops and galleries.
The land occupied by the city of Lambertville was originally purchased by the Delaware Indians as a portion of the 150,000 acre tract along the Delaware River north of Trenton.
In 1705, the first resident of Lambertville, John Holcombe, purchased 350 acres and in 1724 built the stone house on North Main Street that became known as Washington's Headquarters. In 1732, Emmanuel Coryell purchased a portion between Church Street and Swan Creek, and obtained a charter to operate a ferry crossing the Delaware River just south of the Lambertville-New Hope Bridge. Along with the ferry service, Coryell opened a tavern and inn to accomodate travelers. The settlements--Lambertville and New Hope--were called Coryell's Ferry. Lambertville was the halfway point between New York and Philadelphia.
During the Revolutionary War, Coryell's Ferry served as an outpost and crossing point for General George Washington and his troops.
