|The Lower Place tied to the dock - we were at the pavilion|
|The pavilion over looking the bay - GREAT acoustics!|
What a beautiful day in Sackets Harbor! The morning started out with severe
thunderstorms, high wind & LOTS of marine warnings…we were tied to a dock
at Navy Point Marine!! It only took a
phone call to the office and we were approved to stay another night…Ta-daaaa!!
|What a great way to display "potted" flowers|
By 11:30am the bad weather was history and the sun was
shining! Of course the wind was still a
bit strong and the high was forecast to reach 67°…yes, it’s late June in
upstate New York – LOVE IT!!! So we set
out on a foot tour of this precious village.
|Streets lined with flower baskets & greenery|
, military barracks
, historic buildings dating
back to the early 1800’; churches and bed & breakfast establishments were
scattered throughout the town.
course a couple restaurants, a post office, bakery
, library but most of all the
never-ending population of friendly, helpful people!
Everything reminded me of a simpler life –
when people gathered face-to-face to visit.

Charlie and I ate lunch at Tin Pan Galley
today; I looked around the
very full restaurant (it was LOUD) and realized that we were the only ones
looking at our phones…everyone else was looking at each other and actually
Shame on us!!!
|House for sale - corner lot!!!|
After lunch Charlie headed back to the boat to “check on a
few things” (read: he wasn’t interested in walking up & down the
roads). I was excited to have a solo day
of exploration – what fun!!! As usual, I’ll
let the pictures do the talking!
|Building (now home) dated 1810|
|First Presbyterian Church|
|This church is listed with a realtor...sad.|
|Yep, I've been inside this home - now Woolsey Manor B & B|
|And this home too! Christmas 1985!|
One last comment: I
have filed our float plan for travel into Canada!! This will be our last day in the USA until September
1st-or somewhere close to that.
We will still have our phones and the good news is we will still have
our standard service!! YAY!! Communication
to the family will be uninterrupted!
|The mailbox at the local Post Office - rent a box today!|
We hope you enjoy the upcoming Independence Day celebration
day here in the USA…we will help Canada celebrate their 150th
birthday on July 1!!! Can’t wait!!
