So I’ve started my journey of 365, a bit late, but, better late than not at all…
I think what I’ll do is post once a week, everything I’ve done for 7 days
I’m not sure if i ever said the real reason we went out WEST…. well it was to visit with our Grand Daughter. Colorado is great distance form New York air travel is about 1,670 miles. a pretty good distance, so we tried to make the best of our time.
she’ll be three next month. so while she was in day care. we did some traveling around .
this is Breckenridge,Colorado. which sits at 9600 ft. and the summit of the ski resort is upwards of 13,ooo which is upwards of 2 miles above sea level., and yes i did feel like i was sea sick. it didnt matter how much water i drank. i felt so bad i didnt ever have a cocktail.
it was so pretty and so many things to do there.
its only been a ski resort since 1961. they have kept a lot of the charm,by keeping alot of the historic buildings. before all of the skiers took hold, of course it was a place for prospectors
many trails off the main roads, and places to just unwind.
and then when you think your feeling better .because of the altitude , you try a Little shopping but soon realize you ned to find some shade and rest again 🙂 remember this was after all in July and the temps reached over 100 degrees:)
well, that about does it for me. if you came along for my little journey, thank you:)
Anyone who knows me… knows I really despise the cold and snow, and I hibernate for a few months. The last stretch of our winter just seems to drag, as we continue to get more snow and bitter cold temps…. in the the teens.
I’m grateful for my archives during these months, so here’s a redo, of… what else a bench…. for Bench Monday’s a distant memory., in painterly mode
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
its funny how when things are in your own backyard you kind of forget about them, and their importance,and that so many other people would love to have a chance to visit this place,but live to far away. ive been in this mansion hundreds of times, with my different photog. groups. so i just couldnt bring myself to go in but ..walking the grounds, and an amazing experience all on its own..so lets get started….
and all of a sudden i felt eyes on me, at first i thought i was going to be asked to leave…
So that about does it for this tour. i hope if you stopped by, you enjoyed yourself. i know i always do. its a big holiday here..Labor Day week end. … the amusement parks change their hours,(and soon will close,till next summer) what ever schools haven’t opened will be opened by Wednesday. im going to miss Summer in Western New York, at least this summer ,we had 25 days in in the 90’s, and twice and many in the 80’s. so what ever you do this week end, enjoy, and remember …SCHOOL BUSES are out, dont forget to stop when the reds are on, and slow down when the yellows are lit.
George Eastman built his residence at 900 East Avenue between 1902 and 1905. He created a unique urban estate complete with 10.5 acres (42,000 m2) of working farm land, formal gardens, greenhouses, stables, barns, pastures, and a 35,000-square-foot (3,300 m2), 50-room Colonial Revival mansion with a fireproof structure made of reinforced concrete.
Eastman’s house presented a neoclassical Georgian Revival facade of decorative craftsmanship. Beneath this exterior were such modern conveniences as an electrical generator, an internal telephone system with 21 stations, a built-in vacuum cleaning system, a central clock network, an elevator, and a great Aeolian pipe organ. Eastman used the house as a center of the city’s rich musical life from 1905 until his death in 1932.
well its been great going through my vacation to Savannah Georgia, i’d go back in a heartbeat.
so when ever we go on vacation we always try to take trolley’s and boat rides, to learn about the history and other facts you just wont find in a book.and in the last part of our trip we took the boat ride at sunset. we normally dont see sunsets because of the hours my Husband works.. many sunrises though:)
ok, on with the show

i had such an awesome time in Savannah, id go back again tomorrow if i could. i cant explain the feeling i get when im there.
if you stopped by thank you . this is the last segment of my vacation in Savannah Georgia 2016.
The Charm of the South has always won me over. i think in another life i must have lived there.
i thought id share some historic houses today, i wont go into the history, as i did in my other Savannah blogs. mostly because im too lazy. and it is the charm of these places that really captivates me and without SCAD….Savannah College of Architecture and Design..this would certainly not be possible!
and if you look carefully at the brick (same in the other photos) see the smudge marks? well these bricks were hand made by slaves, and those are finger prints.
No i didnt go to a GP. but isnt it pretty?!
not really too keen on English food.. but the liqueur is the same 🙂 and yes it was time for refreshments.. after all my poor hubby was kind enough not to complain all day .
if you stopped by, i hope you enjoyed the tour. i love Savannah. that was my 4th visit, and even though i know i saw the same things, it never bores me. and theres always good fresh seafood:)
so.. have an awesome rest of the week, and thanks again for stopping by.

I Love going to the Public market, i usually go on Thursdays, when its not so crowded, but ..now the veggies are all out, so i try to go Thursdays and Saturdays. i go early and leave when its starting to get packed. i get my shopping gout of the way first, pack up the car, and come back to take candid photos..
besides all the fresh foods, i can find, i some times meet up with friends, for breakfast, as their are many restaurants here, sometimes a few food trucks too. and there are always buskers …some good some..ok, but its always an adventure.
If you stopped by …Thank You i advance.. and have a fantastic rest of the week.
