A Fall Drive

I promise this will be my last fall pictures of the season!! Me and the hubb-muffin went for a drive up to Cooperstown, NY. Yes, the Baseball Hall of Fame is there, and there were multiple tour buses all over, so we stayed clear and did some of the other sites! Hope you enjoy the pics, and remember you can click to enlarge them! I swear next week it is on to more interesting things!

Lake Otsego, and the beginning of the Susquahanna River

Farmers Museum

Loved the angles of the building ...

A little harvest decoration!

John Fenemore Cooper House

A Canopy of gold,it was so neat to walk through, leaves crunchies under foot

OK the name of this place caught my eye!!

Stopped for a cold beer and glass of wine, this place was buit in 1865 and use to be a hotel.

A Nice Fall Walk

OK am I boring you yet with fall pictures?? I took a long walk today up near the golf course, and up and down the hills! I need to get past the 30lb loss freeze I have been on for two months!! SOOO seeing that I had my trusty point and shoot in my pocket, I captured these shots. I made it back up the hill only stopping once, to avoid heart failure!! Hope you enjoy! OH and the spider in the picture at end showed up when I was cutting back the summer flowers - after the walk. I had way to much energy today! (click on Pictures to enlarge)

This is the old IBM Country Club or The Homstead as they called it, now it is called Traditions at The Glen. Nice to see them keep this place up!

Heading down over the hill to the bottom of the golf course

I just LOVE how the sky came out in this picture, the the sun was in and out with all the clouds moving, it was really a nice day! I loved the look of this lone red tree in the distance...so on my walk back I hot some closer pictures.

Looking up a tree!

A Ride In The Country Today!

There is nothing like a beautiful fall day when you can wear jeans and still be able to wear your flip-flops!! Today we road the back country roads not far from home and sampled apples, saw beautiful trees ablaze in color, explored old cemeteries, ran into a crew of turkey vultures, ate dounuts and drank cider, and picked out a pumpkin. All things you love to do on a sunny warm fall day!! (click on photos to enlarge)

one tree already naked, and two dressed

Every season has its special beauty and autumn is no exception. Watching the trees turn from a uniform green to all varieties of gold, yellow and red is a spectacular experience. One can almost be blinded by the fiery brilliance. How can it be that all this beauty is sign of death and decay? With all this beauty there is a certain sadness in knowing that the changing colors foreshadow the arrival of a long cold winter.

A turkey vulture flying around us ... hmmm maybe he thinks we are food!

A ride down the country road ...

A little apple picking too!

A visit with some ducks!

AND the cutest ugly duckling below

A patch of pumpkins awaits new homes

A visit to an old cemetery, oddly also the lady died on halloween, 'tis the season!

OK time for a snack, home made dounuts and cider!

Can you say YUM!!

AND before you know it all the little gouls and gobblins will be knocking at our doors!
