Yesterday we decided to take a walk around part of our town. Well, first of all we had to get Skippy to leave his friend to come walk with us. They seemed to be having quite the discussion on current events. We eventually got him away and on a walk through the Stockade District.
He found a couple of trees there that had great views of the old stone buildings. He decided to hang out in this one for a while and have a snack.
There are so many wonderful buildings around town…Most of them dating back to the 1700’s.
Skippy really loved the front door on this one and how it was all decorated for fall.
We decided from there to walk up past the old Dutch Church where they have the most amazing grave yard. He was especially fond of this grave from 1746 with the skull and cross bones carved into it. The carving and the date were all that he could understand on it, since this squirrel does not speak Dutch.
After all of the sites Skippy was quite tired and chilled too. It has been getting colder and colder here in Upstate, NY. He asked for a ride in my jacket pocket back to the car. He couldn’t wait to get home and tell all of his friends where he had gotten to go.
Have a wonderful rest of your weekend and get out and enjoy something in your neighborhood.
