Snapshots of the Adirondacks

Would you like to take a little tour? We've been spending more time than usual in the Adirondacks and thought you'd like to see some photos.     


The Babbie Rural & Farm Learning Museum in Peru, NY, has lots of interesting buildings filled with antiques and childhood memorabilia. Right up my alley :)


Have you ever seen a cordwood cabin? It's made of stacked logs and bottles with mortar and sawdust insulation. It also has a living roof. 

Asgaard Farm & Dairy in Ausable Forks, NY,  was once the home of artist, Rockwell Kent. Today it is a working farm and sells homemade goat cheeses, caramels and handmade soaps.

The First Baptist Church of Jay NY was est. in 1798. Love the separate entries :)

Lupines along the road. How pretty!

  Flag Iris and . . .

. . . Tall Meadow Rue down by the river. 

Valcour Island on Lake Champlain is a historical gem. The lighthouse has just reopened after undergoing years of renovations. Last Saturday we celebrated my husband's birthday there and toured the island via boat. It was a perfect day! 

Beautiful sunsets on the Ausable River are always a treat :)

Thanks for taking the tour. Next week I'll have some quilting pics to share.

  1. I love this place ! I feel lot of serenity all around ...
    The church specially caught my eyes : love the mix between the rocks and the wood...
    Thank you for sharing !

  2. That is the a part of the country that I've always wanted to visit and explore so I always appreciate your photos.

  3. What a charming area! that cabin is so unique and interesting. I can't believe those lupines are just growing there - beautiful.
    thanks for the tour.

  4. Have never been into that area / would love to see it. A quilter I know who lives nearby, along with her husband built a cordwood house - it is so beautiful and is well known in the area...the cordwood slabs are all round.
