Because of a conference held in Vermont, Rog and I were able to take a bit of a vacation in the process! Despite a few rainy days, It was beautiful to see all of the fall foliage. I took several shots in the town of Corinth, NY. It was such a peaceful little town with interesting things to photograph. The lake was so peaceful!
In town there was some architecture that was quite unusual. I loved the use of the snow shoes! How cool is that to be railing and shutters too!
The building next to it was vacant. What a cool place to have a business. Made me want to move in! Love the railing too
Quite a variety of styles of buildings. This little one was next to the rustic vacant one.
Here is another peaceful area of town! I love running around old cemetaries. I am facinated by the ages of the stones as well as the ages of the people that have died so young. One can't help but feel a little haunted by the setting.
Would you believe that I didn't get any pictures of our original destination? It had rained in Burlington, VT so didn't get any the first day that I was out. By the second day, the weather was fabulous and I didn't take my camera when I was running around! Mostly I shopped. I wished that I had taken a photo of Lake Champlain and the market area in town. Really was some nice scenery. While at the hotel I did some hand sewing and spent time at the pool. When the conference was over, we headed north to Canada!
You could tell that we were in French speaking Quebec with the signs.
This is the Montreal skyline when we crossed the bridge. We got to Montreal during rush hour. Such a mess in traffic! Took forever to get across the south side.
When we got to Ontario, the signs were of course back in English. Looks sort of funny to see that you could go the maximum speed of 90! Of course Rog reminded me that it was in killometers. LOL
It was an extremely windy day, but we took time off the road to see this windmill that had it's functions as a windmill, a battle station and a lighthouse. It was a light house up until 1978. Unfortunately due to off season, we couldn't view the interior.
This old rail fence ran outside of the windmill area.
This is a picture of the St. Lawarance Seaway.
At one point we crossed the water with our car in a ferry.
We loved viewing Toronto! So many wonderful skyscrapers and towers.
This double decker bus is a sight seeing tour next to Niagara Falls on the Canadian side.
They had a hill side trolley that would take you to the top of the street to shop and also view the falls.
Canadian Mounty gear on display in the center.
Outside of the center I took this shot through an archway. Loved all of the wonderful mums! My favorite flower!
I still found some very lovely roses in bloom even at the end of October!
We didn't do the boat tour of the mist. I don't think it was operating anyway this time of year. It was facinating to view the rushing waters. We had an overcast day.
This is one of the views from the lakes. It was taken in Ohio.
Although I could get use to the travel scene, it was good to be back home to curl up to some waiting cats. They complained that they missed their humans, but all was forgiven after the first day home. We also couldn't leave without at least one of them getting into trouble! This is Honey's tail full of burrs!
And so was Aslan's tail! He figured out a way to help clean up any tell tail mess by having the burrs stick to a cloth to wipe up the floor!
Well, back to the real world! A cat mom's work is never done. O.K. who's first for a hair cut?
