Sanskrit for "Forest of Peace", Shantivanum certainly lives up to its name. Situated in the woods of southern Pennsylvania, this wonderful retreat beckons to those who may live in the world of The Hectic and invites them to come, relax by the fire, listen to the sounds of nature and feel the blood pressure go down ... aaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh ... that's just right!

I took a meandering walk through the woods to and overlook and saw the fall colors splashed on the hillsides.

Hung out with my sister, Michele, her dogs Luna & Duke and her husband, Jim, who's behind the camera.

Oscar declined the long walk, claiming his itty-bitty legs would just get too tuckered out. I think he had a serious nap by the fireplace in mind. Ya think?
