Graffiti and where it lives


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

one of the “camps”.no one was there.
thanks God there was an opening….for awhile
now for some artwork…



well at some point we had to turn around because the city is filling the whole thing in..and of course we came in at the entrance they had filled in 😦

back inside
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





heading over the the river from under the city


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

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

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!

at first i thought it was a joke, and this was all i was going to see…..
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 was hard to get decent photos… but heres a young one coming up for air.
all those shadows…..yep the mother load of Manatees
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.



its such a beautiful park, so well maintained, and it only costs $3.00 a car to get in.
it was here LittleOh lost some body parts and her camera. she thought this was a Gecko’ trying to get her.
plenty of places to sit , wash your feet.. if you need to 🙂  but you know i love my benches:)
gift shops and cafeterias along with  vending machines
rest rooms were impeccably clean
the whole area was just breathtaking
plenty to look at here.. but take a closer look.. theres’ mamma manatee and her baby. i was so thrilled. only wish i could have gotten a better shot of them. the sun was so bright.

so it ws tiem to g=o visit my friends’ Daughter and G’kids.  and after  that..

what else….. food and drink.. when Im in Fl. i like to eat as much fish as i can. so i had grouper fingers. and… fish dip.     my friend doesn’t  like seafood at all, she had …a pork chop.
so yeah we drank and ate some where in Lake Mary. at a place called Duffy’s
all i can say is.. watered down  vodka!!!

so we moved on the the next bar, after all we didnt have to drive our hotel was just a few feet from this concourse

another Irish bar, and this was when i knew i had been drinking watered down vodka…at the other place.   but any way, this was the outfit the females wore. they were cute.. 


heres litttleOh all put back together again. ,

well that will do it for today, if you stopped.. and i hope you did:)  i hope you liked what you saw.. and please have a great rest of the week…oh yeah and week end..since today is Thursday:)
