Days on the River


Our original plan for yesterday was a trip to Ottawa, a favorite city. But the one thing I forgot to bring was my passport. What used to be a quick trip over the border isn't any longer. K had a terrific alternate adventure and instead we went south to Sackets Harbor, an important site in the history of the War of 1812. I'm saving more on the War of 1812 for a later post, but I found our visit fascinating. This is a beautiful town and we had lunch overlooking the marina. We couldn't have had a prettier day.

I am enjoying sunny quiet days on the river. I love my life in New York, but I'm struck by the difference in noise levels. I thought I had trouble sleeping because that's just what happens as I got older. I've had no trouble sleeping here at all, and I'm sure the quiet is a big factor. I'm walking down the road for a haircut in a few minutes. One of K's neighbors has a salon in her home and I enjoy my yearly visits. We'll grill outside tonight and watch the river as we eat our burgers. I can't think of a calmer evening. 

Wishes for calm and peaceful evening to all. Thanks for visiting.

Sounds lovely and there is nothing better than a good night's sleep.

I love the sounds of a city; it is invigorating and exciting. However, I also love the sound of the night in my rural area with the song of the frogs, birds, and crickets lulling me to sleep on a beautiful starlit night.
