Black and White People

 

well here it is the end of the month and Fraggy and I do our little photo exchange thingy, this time it was B&W anything. My Brother-in-law came to town, so I figured I show him something’s that have changed since he’s been gone.. and I kept with the theme of B&W.

 

this is Ontario State Park.

we use to have a beach, a natural shoreline beach.. well Lake Ontario pretty much destroyed that this year. the floods were crazy bad, if you live along the lake

well thats my little city, Brother in law went back to kansas, and its been raining ever since.

 

Can you believe its the end of July already? I sure cant. the weather has been crazy. if you stopped by, thank you. have a great week-end.

 

The dinner cruise to end all 

Well we splurged this year for July 4th , as soon as I knew it wasn’t going to rain, because we have seen our share this summer, nothing but rain and colder than usual summer. Anyway, the reason we took this kind of expensive dinner cruise, was to see the fire works in downtown Rochester,NY.  The tickets were 100.00 dollars apiece.  The cruise itself, was about 5 hours , we Are Not  nite people , and we felt it the next few days. The   Cruise started at 7pm and we didn’t return till 12:30 am. A very long trip.

as we left port, we are reminded how many low bridges we must  stay low for, and there were many!! i stayed below, till we got to the fireworks

we had to go through 2 locks  before leaving the canal, and entering the Genesee River, to head Downtown.

people love to watch the boats go through the lock system

 

some views of the locks at work, and a few of the bridges we had to go under

dinner was BBQ’d chicken, and spareribs, salt potatoes, salad, and rolls, and coffee or water.

well the ride home was cold and uneventful, except for some crazy people who were out in their little motor boats, trying to pass  the big boat,  so they could all get in the locks b4 us.

A Stroll Through the farmers Market

Most Saturdays I get up early and head down town, to a very crowded place, Called The Farmers Market. Every City has at least one big one, and today I thought id show you ours. voted #1!!  I’ve been to better, but ours has a friendly feel, so much so that people come just to meet their friends and have breakfast, here’s a link http://www.cityofrochester.gov/CategoryLocator.aspx?id=8589935817

hopefully it works?

so on this particular Saturday I met up with a photog  group, and we just strolled though, and I saw things id never seen b4, only because when I go to shop, for my veggies, that’s exactly what I do.

34574855854_b70c3e6505_o_pe
isn’t it beautiful, looks so much better than a bare wall
35340451116_eb87f6a05b_o_pe
and if your still looking  for plants for your garden, well this would be the place.

and the best thing about a farmers market, …no middle man, most everything is cheaper

35287007591_1fd69dd307_o_pe
Absinthe

has any one ever used this in a cocktail /its an anise flavored spirit can be up to 90`148% proof, so needless to say you don’t need much of it.  here are 2 colored bottles but you can also buy it colorless traditionally  it is not bottled with any sugar, you can see the sugar cube on the glass in the middle. the gentleman told us you would pour the Absinthe over the sugar, the cube will melt. add ice and theres your drink.

moving on

35377240956_afdb51e106_o_pe
so moving on, I almost always never venture away from where the food is, but this day I went down another street, and saw vender who have their own shops, this man is a fire fighter, and he does the most beautiful things with iron.

35250223242_b896bf7492_o_pe

well I didn’t buy anything , and I did have a great time meeting up with some new photogs. so after a couple of hours of walking around we met up at another spot

35250287351_cbf4cd3471_o_pe
I had to get some water.

people come for the cheap eats, and meet up with friends, its a great place ,and people stay all day.

well its getting hot, and this  was a perfect day, but its getting very crowded now, and I must be on my way. I hope you enjoyed my walk thorough our farmers market. its Quaint, and very friendly. I love going to the city market, where ever we are, you can get a real feel for the city I think. if you stopped by, thank you, and have a most pleasant day, and rest of the week end.
