This town built on the glory of chocolate under the keen entrepreneurship of Milton S Hershey is currently the oldest chocolate factory still in production. This was M S HErshey's 9th attempt - all his prior 8 attempts at building a chocolate factory were a debacle. THe 9th attempt built an empire!!!

This stream runs through the Golf course right opposite home and on this beautiful day i could not restrain myself from entering the golf course and get this exposure - and suddenly i have a visitor too! A duck in the stream.

It may be the oldest in the US, 1894, but the oldest in the world is Cadburys Chocolate founded 70 years earlier, in 1824 with the factory opening in 1831 in Birmingham, England.   :)   Who can resist chocolate.......

I do like your image very much.  Beautifully done, Ramesh!

Very lovely mood you created, Ramesh- love the glowing brook and the duck tops it off. Does it smell like chocolate there? That would drive me crazy!!
