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.

Thank you for sharing !
That is the a part of the country that I've always wanted to visit and explore so I always appreciate your photos.ReplyDelete
What a charming area! that cabin is so unique and interesting. I can't believe those lupines are just growing there - beautiful.ReplyDelete
thanks for the tour.
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.ReplyDelete
