Champlain Canal

These are from two weekends ago.....I know I'm slow!

We were looking for a place to walk while we were at the dog trial & found this hiking trail
It follows the Champlain canal

We eventually came out in the grounds of the Phillip Schuyler house.

When we had driven there on Saturday we kept passing signs that said Zoo with an arrow so on the way home we decided to try & find it.  We drove forever on back roads & through farmland & very few houses.  We were ready to give up when we came upon the "zoo"........ using the term lightly!  There were a few bedraggled ostriches and some........
cows & goats!  That was the "zoo"!
This is Saratoga lake......still half frozen!


  1. THe photos are amazing. I love the last one and the black and white.

    How close are you to Albany?

    1. Albany,NY or Albany,GA? Just kidding! Not far.....about 15 miles.

  2. My friends that have the big huge sissy dog alfie, the golden doodle, are driving their motor home up to Albany for a month shortly and since I have mentioned a whole lot, wondered if you would like a dog playdate. Not sure of all the dates yet but Shara got so excited at the idea of meeting possibly Molly.

Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"

Love Val

Snowy day in the park

I have an abundance of snow pics.  Between last Thurs & Monday we had 20 inches of snow!  We are so done with this white stuff!
 But I do have to admit it is pretty

 Makes for great pictures
 And you'll see from the next few pics how much Molly loves it!

   We take a two second pause.....
 ......& off again

 I do hope the hornets went to Florida for the winter

 This sums up the whole walk!
