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:)!!
It’s funny how you take things in your own Backyard for granted….. I’ve never once thought about visiting this place, but the thought of moving to another state has really made me look around.And this past Saturday we took a ride.. just down the road from us, really..30 min. away. to..Sonnenberg Mansion and Gardens. it sits high on a hill overlooking one of out finger lakes.
there was a craft show going on , with food and music, so i thought i could get my Hubby to go.ill going to start with the out side of the mansion.
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.
sitting on the dock of the canal, just watching the world go by, a perfect summers day, me with my cuppa, and My Hubby with His Ice Cream. Boaters love to talk about their Journey and their vessel. We also have a few boats for sight-seeing. and that will be on another day. for now just more waking around and sitting my the 2 villages near me.
just a little History, before I begin my photo journey . although I am use to living just steps away from a great lake, I cant complain at all , having the canal so close, its wonderful, we meet so many people in the summer months, who love to talk about their travels along the canal, where they been with the with the boats (of all sizes). We live just minuets from 2 towns on the Canal, we spend a great deal of time between the 2.
The Erie Canal is a canal in New York that originally ran about 363 miles (584 km) from Albany, New York, on the Hudson River to Buffalo, New York, at Lake Erie. Built to create a navigable water route from New York City and the Atlantic Ocean to the Great Lakes, the canal helped New York eclipse Philadelphia as the largest city and port on the Eastern Seaboard of the United States. The canal is now part of the New York State Canal System.
Exactly a year ago this week, we had some visitors from Merry ole’England…. One of my best Flickr Budds, wanted to jump the big pond and come for a visit. So Her and her Hubby did just that. I’ve known Fragglerocking. From Flickr for a very long time, we were so excited and nervous about the visit, I mean No One comes to Rochester New York for a vacation.. Especially from as far away as these guys were coming. So the wheels were in motion.. Where to take them in a short amount of time , we actually only had 5 days, as they were going to stop a few other places before boarding the jet again.
So… We decided to take them to a few of the WONDERS of our corner of the world. We enjoyed this visit and we sure hope Fraggy and her Hubby did too! There were so many things we wanted to show them… That we couldn’t , they’ll just have to come back;)
