In My Little Town

sitting on the dock of the canal, just watching the world go by, a perfect summers day, me with my cuppa, and My Hubby with His Ice Cream. Boaters love to talk about their Journey and their vessel. We also have a few boats for sight-seeing. and that will be on another day. for now just more waking around and sitting my the 2 villages near me.

we went inside the "Coal Tower Restaurant" for a bite to eat. yep, this once was a real  building that housed coal, it was coveted many many years ago. we stop in every once in a while.

finally... the vessel is loaded and they are heading Down Town for  festivities. they will have to go through a lock, and on the Genesee River to reach theior destination. it will take 2 to 3 hours. time will pass quickly.. food and drink:) are part of the package deal.
