Not necessarily a thing of beauty, but the picture of this barge heading down the river in Falls Township shows the more awesome side of the Delaware River.

This is the same beach as above but looking from the other direction, and a couple of months later.

The Delaware River rises up in New York State and flows south marking the border of Pennsylvania and New Jersey. As it passes Morrisville, PA in lower Bucks County it tumbles across the Falls of the Delaware. This is the boundary of the upland Piedmont Plateau and the lower land coastal plain. From this point on the Delaware is actually tide water of the Atlantic Ocean, and a tide change of eight feet is not uncommon. All these pictures are of the Delaware River as it flows past southern Bucks County, below the tide line. The Atlantic tide pushes up the river to Morrisville where it meets the Piedmont Plateau at the "Falls of the Delaware".
