well it was a busy one, trying to catch all the left over flavor Summer had to offer. but it all started in the beginning of the week when my Feline Bella, got attacked by the neighbors viscous cat ,who just roams the neighborhood looking for trouble. Poor Bella..wrong place wrong time, and shes an old lady, stays 2 houses either way from us. so to the vets we went.. ,2 big wounds on her belly.. drugs..antibiotics shots.. still got off rather cheap..175.00. for the stories ive heard, ok shes healing fine, and doesnt even ask to go out on our deck poor thing.I had to change our plans a bit, as I was nervous about leaving her all week end.
so we did day trips , yep back and forth , from here and there…of course i bought a new Iphone in between. i got a 6 not to be confused with the 6s. but its a 64 GB. so im set for a while:) but its taking for ever to set up, and with the new case its heavy. i always get a mophie, but this one is also waterproof. and if something happens to my phone.. the mophie peeps will get me a replacement !! not a bad deal
well thanks for stopping by, we did make a few more stops..but ill save them for the next few days..
now i need to check and see id the cloud is done uploading.lol have a nice day. these were all shot with my new iphone 6
I’m not sure where the summer went this year, but here it is the middle of August, and schools are opening already.its true I’m retired, but i still go by the school calendar, and i still get up at the crackA$$ of dawn., so while a take a break from my vacation to Florida, i went to spend the week-end with my good pal and her Hubby in Buffalo ,NY.. They always try to show me a good time and this past week-end was no different.
I’m always amazed at the construction going on in my Home Town, Lord knows Buffalonians have waited a long to see prosperity, and its finally happening. their down town has been revitalized into a destination place that is beyond any ones wildest dreams.
MY Husband will go Photoging with me as long as He has something to do, (so my Friend Chris blogged about this camp last year.) and I knew I’d get Him to go.. so off we went. took us a while to find it. I cant wait to go back, and we did find some other activity going on there. a few hikers, a few campers.. and a few fishermen:)…..HISTORY AT BOTTOM
Relatively unknown, Beechwood State Park is easily one of the most unique park experiences New York has to offer. A former Girl Scouts of America summer camp, the property has been left as it was abandoned in 1996. After 15 years the buildings are in a state of decay, with many overgrown by weeds. The Olympic-size pool is almost completely destroyed, and the large wooden dock on the lake has been demolished into piled up scrap along the shore. Campgrounds vary from fallen shelters covered in vines, to intact and clean lean-tos, almost ready for use. Throughout this designated nature park, the old campground’s lodges and miscellaneous structures are there to be discovered by the casual hiker. At least for now. Whether or not the state will demolish them in the future is unknown.
well thanks for stopping by, i hope you enjoyed your visit… ill be back with more from this place. we had a great time investigating 🙂
I grew up on the waterfront, just like the movie, with Marlon Brando..
the grain mills were always running, the tug boats were busy, the steel mills were in full production, every one worked.. well at least till the holidays, then most got laid off, for a few weeks .I grew up with hard-working middle class people, every one was catholic, and Irish ..lol, except me..I’m Italian. but the times have changed and so has the part of Buffalo that I grew up in. For the Good, it is now a Tourists destination. I’ve always been fond of going back home, but now I enjoy it even more… to be continued
