I thought I would try for the Pedestrian Post I missed earlier this week, in lieu of my usual Lame Post Friday post. Accordingly, I armed myself with my smarter-than-me phone and set out shortly after supper. I have done several of these picture walk posts in Herkimer, NY, and knew my adopted hometown would not disappoint.
My first photo op was the Grand Colonial Bed and Breakfast at 122 West German Street. Unfortunately I was across the street and did not get a good shot. So Herkimer did not disappoint, but my camera did. Most likely it was operator error as usual.
Continuing with my walk, I crossed Main Street and started down the lovely walkway over what used to be a hydraulic canal. It is a wonderful re-purposed space, which, alas, I also did not get a good picture of.
I took a turn halfway down the path and walked down a sidewalk with few photo ops. It was then I remembered I had been going to go to Mohawk Community Market on Main Street for the Grand opening on their newly renovated downstairs. Well, it will still be renovated in days to come. I’ll get there soon (preview of coming attractions).
Continuing my walk, I noticed the signs on the parking lot to the county office buildings. Regular readers know that I can rarely resist entering where it says not to.
I went out the entrance and the wrong way down Mary Street but did not take pictures of those signs. Then I was on Main Street, heading towards my beloved Herkimer Historic Four Corners.
I tried, once again unsuccessfully, to get a picture of Suiter House. By now I am too lazy to search my Media Library for one of those.
It was a very enjoyable walk. I may take another one soon, if for no other reason than to get pictures of the things I missed.
