I’ve been laid up for just about a week now. Saw the acupuncturist today and she fixed me up pretty good, I’ll know better tomorrow. But.. anyway, before I landed myself in this predicament , I went to our little conservatory, Forgetting not only was it Sunday but also the beginning of feb. recess :(!!! It was very crowded but I managed to get a few shots off .
It was nice to see a mom taking Her son out shooting
And then there r the Quails under foot , nervous little things , they are. With signs every where to b careful where u step..
And a mascot to end all mascots:). Yeah she lives there too.
But u cant help but stop by and see these crazy turtles , I’m told they are always “doing it”
A different type of turtle. He’s generally on land .
Well I found one room with no one in it . But it was time for me to go.
As it was getting way to crowded for me.
So off I went following the brick road.:)
Have a wonderful week end everyone
Savannah is the oldest city in the U.S. state of Georgia and is the county seat of Chatham County. Established in 1733 on the Savannah River, the city of Savannah became the British colonial capital of the Province of Georgia and later the first state capital of Georgia. A strategic port city in the American Revolution and during the American Civil War, Savannah is today an industrial center and an important Atlantic seaport. It is Georgia’s fifth-largest city and third-largest metropolitan area.
Each year Savannah attracts millions of visitors to its cobblestone streets, parks, and notable historic buildings: the birthplace of Juliette Gordon Low (founder of the Girl Scouts of the USA), the Georgia Historical Society (the oldest continually operating historical society in the South), the Telfair Academy of Arts and Sciences (one of the South’s first public museums), the First African Baptist Church (one of the oldest African-American Baptist congregations in the United States), Temple Mickve Israel (the third oldest synagogue in America), and the Central of Georgia Railway roundhouse complex (the oldest standing antebellum rail facility in America).
Savannah’s downtown area, which includes the Savannah Historic District, the Savannah Victorian Historic District, and 22 parklike squares, is one of the largest National Historic Landmark Districts in the United States (designated by the U.S. government in 1966).[a] Downtown Savannah largely retains the original town plan prescribed by founder James Oglethorpe (a design now known as the Oglethorpe Plan). Savannah was the host city for the sailing competitions during the 1996 Summer Olympics held in Atlanta.
ok so thats wicki for ya :0 now here’s my take… in photos:)
these were all taken at the CITY MARKET in Savannah Ga. i have so many photos i just didnt know where to begin… so i decided to work backwards…
you wont see any fireworks… im not a fan.. and.. this city does not have the best display. my husband was a bit disappointed, but im fine:)!
if you stopped by ,i thank you. Savannah is such an awesome place i cant wait to show you the rest of her.
Well its that time of year again, festivals every week end, sometimes over lapping, so one needs to pay attention, as to which one to go to… im not a fan of crowds at all, so where ever i go..i go early and leave in the middle.this last weekend,the fest.was in my little town,on the Erie Canal.
i had to park a good mile or more away, because im to cheap to pay ..upwards of 10 dollars. if i had a car full of people that would have been a different story, but i was alone…so here we go
and if you notice that snowy stuff..its dogwood..it makes a mess, its everywhere, for a few weeks.
well for what ever reason im having a terrible time on wordpress today… so..im going to leave now, and return in a few days with more?:) anyone else out there having problems? anyway, if you stopped by, thank you!! and have an awesome day… and a better week end:)!!
As i have been haunting old sometimes historic cemeteries ,my Husband suggested i check out another Historic Cemetery across town, this one being a Catholic, well i was a bit concerned i might turn into ashes walking through there (lol) many notable Catholics were /are buried there. but it wasnt as pretty as Mt.Hope. too flat for my taste. im hoping this link will take you there.
and then i went across the street to Riverside Cemetery
hopefully this link will take you there. that was prettier, i thought, well as cemeteries go anyway.
and then i found where the children are buried…
that will pretty much do it for my cemeteries.. looking at these last few did me in.Seeing how well the grave sights are cared for made me feel good, but it was rather upsetting to see so many . so i will end here. please have a wonderful rest of the week and all you Moms, out there have a wonderful Mothers day. thanks for stopping by.
so here it is the middle of April, I’ve been in a muck of sorts.. not the best time of year for me.
so ive gone through the archives and dug out some of my favorite flowers,since it will be planting season….in another month. I’m NO gardener by any stretch of the imagination,but i know what i like, and i love to see pretty gardens,i just dont have the patience to do it myself.so lets begin the journey…..
well that concludes my tour, it will be Lilac season here soon enough, and that’s the start of everything summer. we have the largest variety of lilacs in the world,something to do with our temps?! I’m told..
so ill be spending most days in the park soon enough. if you stopped by i hope you enjoyed my virtual garden. have a wonderful rest of the week.
well this is a terrible time of year, you never know if its going to snow..or turn into a warm spring. the sky around here is usually a dull grey ..so ive enhanced that part of my tour today. a little history.. about High Falls, and Browns Race
The High Falls are one of three voluminous waterfalls on the Genesee River, that flow through the city of Rochester in New York. The High Falls are located about 2 miles upstream from the lower falls and act as their source. The High Falls area was the site of much of Rochester’s early industrial development, where industry was powered by falling water. Browns race diverts water from above the falls and was used to feed various flour mills and industries, today the water is used to produce hydroelectric power.
The High Falls was the site of the final jump of “The Yankee Leaper” Sam Patch who died after jumping off of the High Falls in 1829
there have been many attempts to start restaurants and coffee bars, bowling alleys even, but for some reason.. Rochester,NY being so stuffy and conservative..nothing has ever work, thanks to the preservation committee for saving all these old buildings, and restoring them to their natural beauty. this building now houses most of the radio stations in this city. Seems that’s all that is sustainable in this Historic area. I’m glad its all being used, but it seems like such a waste.
this funny shaped building used to house a quaint little bar., it over looks the river. and if you continue walking…
Genesee Brewing Company is an American brewery located along the Genesee River in Rochester, New York. In 1878 Genesee Brewing Company moved up into Rochester. From 2000 to 2009 the company was known as the High Falls Brewing Company. In 2009 High Falls was acquired by the capital investment firm KPS Capital. Together with also newly acquired Labatt USA, KPS merged the two companies as North American Breweries. Along with this change, High Falls Brewery changed its name back to the original “Genesee Brewing Company” operating under the North American Breweries name. In October 2012, North American Breweries was purchased by Cerveceria Costa Rica S.A.
According to 2012 figures, North American Breweries was the sixth-largest brewing company in America by sales volume.
well thats my little tour for today:), if you stopped by i hope you enjoyed it, Its one of the Highlights in Rochester,NY..at least where i take my out of town guests:)
and if you did stop by, thank you, and have an awesome day.
Well about a week ago i posted a collection of Fences, today..i thought id share some Benches:),Yes another collection, and i might add a growing group in Flickr, as well as Face book. so let me get started by saying ive been collection these probably as long as fences, now most people who are not into photography will think this is strange, but just like my Fences.. ya just never know what your going to see…… through the eyes of a photographer… so here we go…
well that should do it.. for now:) think of me the next time your out side and go to sit on something:)
If you stopped by thank you in advance. and i dont mean to get political.. its getting just down right scary in the USA though!!!! have a wonderful rest of the week.
so the other day i got a phone call , and the person asked if we (hubby and Me) wanted to go to a concert, she had extra tickets… i hemmed and hawed as i always do.. because i really dont like to be in crowds. well we agreed to go , and then found out this person wanted 300 bucks from us. well ok.. i was a bit disturbed at the beginning… but i got over it. even more so after the show.
of course we grew up with Bruce. i remember when the E street band played at all the local colleges.. for 5 bucks , and usually all the tap beer you could drink.
things change 🙂 but He is still the MAN to see, what a concert!! he seems to truly love the audience. so this is what i got. if i would have known they weren’t going to check purses i certainly would have brought my camera.
The E street Band Played to a sold out crowd, Rochester,NY has a small venue by big city standards.. the Blue cross arena holds 13,000 people. In my years…I’ve sen my share of concerts, and i know everyone usually says the last concert they saw was the best..but this one… this one will stand out in my mind for years to come.
they played from 8:20 till 11:20. most oft he songs were from the River Album but there was not one song they didnt play, ever a few covers.
