Walking Hermitage Road

Monday, October 10.  Upstate New York.  Foothills of the Adirondack Mountains.  Another crystal clear autumn day at Lake Bonaparte.

A peek into our bay at the Lake

My mom and I decided to take a walk up Hermitage Road, mostly to see Charlotte (more about her below).  She was obliging toward my frequent stops and shots of the Lake and other scenes that caught my photographer's eye.  Thanks, Mom; you're the best!!

I'm going to try to do a "photojournal" post, letting my images tell the story, with a caption included every now and then.

Isn't the Lake pretty today?

St. Rita's; now being transformed into a private residence

Words needed now!  I know you're freaking out--as I did--at the below.  Let me introduce you to Charlotte, "pet" spider at the W. family Lake house.  She has been living on their deck all summer, and even had an egg sac with lots of babies!  Doesn't that thrill you to know there are potentially hundreds of little ones just like her hiding around somewhere??

Okay, quick--back to scenery and our walk!

Back at our own Lake home...

And of course, as the hours rolled on, it was time for the end of another day.

Good night, Monday

I will sing to the LORD,
Because He has dealt bountifully with me.
Psalm 13:6 NASB

  1. I LOVE the picture with the stone steps. Just something about stone walls and steps sends chills of delight through my body :D

  2. Allie, That is one of my favorite images from my Lake trip! I would love to do a photo shoot there. In autumn, of course!

  3. Ok I quickly moved past the spider photo. :) I think your favorite photo is mine too. So pretty.
