I took a walk with my phone on Sunday, thinking to make a Pedestrian Post. I don’t see any reason not to makes the post now (for the record, it is early Wednesday morning and I failed to make my Tired Tuesday post) (me and my obsession with accuracy). Sunday was perhaps the last beautiful unseasonably warm day, and I decided to take advantage of it, waiting till the sun was up to take my stroll.
On a walk some time ago, I wanted to get a picture of the Grand Colonial Bed and Breakfast, to give them a shout-out, but could not get a good shot from across the street. Sunday, I was on the right side of the road. I have been inside there (when I wrote about them for Mohawk Valley Living magazine). It is beautiful! And I’ve seen the breakfast menu: Wow!
Continuing down German Street, I turned left onto Main. I wanted to walk up the hill, where it is only open to local and pedestrian traffic. I like the exertion of walking up a hill, although I admit I can get too much of a good thing.
They recently paved it. I wondered if that means they are going to do something about the area on top of the hill, where the road is partially collapsed.
I see they added a branch to the barricade. As usual, I interpreted it to mean it was closed to vehicular traffic, not middle-aged pedestrian ladies (other pedestrians, too, of course, but I was the only one there at the time).
As I continued my walk, I took care to appreciate the color that yet remains on our trees. This time of year, I feel I must just look and look, because it lasts such a short time.
Bare trees and dead trees have a fascination for me, too. I will probably share a lot of pictures of bare branches against the sky in future Pedestrian Posts. To me, it never gets old.
I have been admiring this particular tree for a while. So big! So bright!
I enjoyed my walk very much, and I see I have gotten a 400 word blog post out of it. That’s long for Mohawk Valley Girl! I hope my readers have enjoyed it.
