My Honeybee Adventure

Something I've always wanted to do is to get up close and personal
with honeybees in their hives. Here was my chance!

Kurt welcomed us to visit his hives in lovely Furlong, PA (Bucks County).
His passion was evident as he told us all about his beekeeping hobby!

Here I am in full regalia!

"The fear of the LORD is pure, enduring forever.
The decrees of the LORD are firm, and all of them are righteous.
They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold;
They are sweeter than honey, than honey from the honeycomb."
-Psalm 19:9,10




Crossing that one off of my Bucket List!
Thanks, Kurt!
