Door without a handle... open to get out, but not to get in.

I may not be posting as regular as usual for the next few months as we are in the process of relocating, moving from our home of over 30 years. It's a big job decluttering after so long, selling a house, buying a new house, managing the move and the paperwork.

So I guess you can say we are moving out... don't need a handle to get back in.

Stairways are always interesting for their strong lines and diagonals.

Snow pile at Gravel Road

It seems strange that there are serious winter storms to the east of us and we are just looking at old snow.

That's Hatties, on the left

Hatties Restaurant, the unpretentious home of tasty Southern cooking in Saratoga Springs. Try the fried chicken.

Peerless Spring

According to my research (WolframAlpha) there are 84 cities in the US that have "Spring" in their name, but to my knowledge there is no town that celebrates and maintains their natural springs like Saratoga Springs New York. There are over a dozen springs in and around the community and most are operating and under a pavilion of unique design. The Peerless Spring is only one example.

Some of the springs sprout sweet fresh water but most are naturally carbonated and contain various minerals. For hundreds of years the waters have been valued for their medicinal benefits for drinking or bathing. It is fun to taste each spring, many of which can only be tolerated by a small sip.

Small town, small bookshop... a rare site these days.
