I have not been running or walking since mid-December when I got sick with the flu. I decided to take January 1st to re-start with a walk. I took my phone with me, so I could make a Pedestrian Post with Pictures.
It was warm for January, upper 30s, lower 40s (my thermostat is not strictly accurate). It had been raining. I had not gone very far when I saw it was still sprinkling. I could not worry about that; I was out, I was going to continue. I turned down German Street towards Main. I slipped a little on some ice on the sidewalk, but there were plenty of bare patches. I tried to stick with those.
I passed the Grand Colonial Bed and Breakfast and took a picture, so I could plug a local business. Traffic was quiet enough that I could easily cross German at Main Street. I wanted to walk down the path over what used to be a hydraulic canal.
I also took pictures of the plaques with information on the history. Full disclosure: I have never read them but only taken a glance while passing.
I crossed German in the middle of the block to continue down the path.
After leaving the path, I headed toward my beloved Herkimer Historic Four Corners.
I decided to try to make it a long walk, since I am getting back into things after a break. I ended up walking up and down my driveway for about 40 seconds in order to make it a full 20 minutes. I was quite pleased with my walk. I hope to take another one tomorrow.
That’s a pretty church. Have you ever been inside? What are the other 3 buildings?
I’ve been to a couple of rummage sales but never to mass. The other buildings are the 1834 Jail, the County Courthouse, and Suiter House, which is the museum of the Herkimer County Historical Society.
