well its the last day of the month and Fraggy and  have a project we do at the last day, she has my photo, and its Graffiti …so I thought it was only fitting to blog about the very same thing.. even though these photos are from my archives.  I hope the link works so you can read about this “subway”

an old stairwell leading to the trains… we figured:)

and I soon found out ..why we needed protecting from the “elements”

we came acroos a few “homesteads” yes there were people living inside there, or at least that’s where they camped out for the nite.

the smell in this place was indescribable

we’d find different signs around, we wondered if this was a sign for a woman’s bathroom.. it sure smelled like it could have been

it was an adventurous day, and ive never felt the need to go back..not even sure how much is left opened. And its certainly not a place anyone would go alone.

if you stopped by ,thank you in advance, have a pleasant rest of the week.

The warmest day on record in Rochester,NY

http://www.cityofrochester.gov/article.aspx?id=8589936495

Here’s a link of my little tour today. I went to meet my Brother in law with the purpose of going to the Zoo, forgetting it was Feb. break, and all the schools  are out for the week. Well .. the Zoo was so crowded, I had to think fast, since my poor BiL came from Buffalo,NY to spend the day photographing with me.

I knew He’d love the Historic  High Falls area, so we headed off in that direction.. and this is what I saw. Beside all the Historic building we also boast to have the oldest working brewery . And way back when Rochester was called the “FLOUR” city,  all the rock formations you’ll see are  where all the grains were brought to be milled and shipped out. All located on The Mighty Genesee River

Since getting windows 10 I can’t do anything on my PC, so I’m working on my IPad.

If you stopped by thank you in advance, I know I’ve been a stranger most of this month. February has never been a good month for me, I just hibernate away, but out temps have been in the 60’s which is very unusual . So at least for now:) I’m out of hibernation, and I think the worst of winter has past:) yes I’m optimistic.

 

inside the Brewery

a look of the city neighborhood from the west

the bridge over the falls carries trains,usualy im lucky enough to catch one.. not today though

lots of walking to do..i reached my 10,000 steps

some kids will do just a bout anything on a dare.

Manatee State Park

  I had such an awesome time on my journey through Florida. like i said earlier.. im starting some where in the middle of my trip. somewhere in this link is a web cam and any one can see how many Manatees come to this location  each day. the day we went there were over 200. and im told that was a low number.  but for me it was over whelming, in all my years of going to Fl. ive never been able to see these creatures..EVER!

Swimmers in the spring.
we weren’t fortunate enough to be able to swim with them .

the water is so crystal clear, and with the reflection from the sun..it was hard to get decent photos… but heres a young one coming up for air.

there were some workers trying to get them to swim more so we could see them better, and they take very good care of these obsolete creatures.
