For a change today Chuck and I decided to walk downtown. When we left the house if was sunny and just a light wind. Well, that certainly changed by the time we got downtown. Along the way we walk through a neighbourhood of houses built in the 1920's. Some have been restored but many of them are broken up into apartments. This house is an example. I think there is 7 apartments in it now. I love all the ironwork. I wonder how old the fancy shingles are. I keep forgetting to turn off the date code!
The woodwork is mostly intact which is surprising for an apartment building. I do remember when there was a lighting rod on the top of the house.
As we got closer to the water it got darker and darker. Only a couple of boats left at the marina.
Lovely new building.
It started to spit so we headed for home. Amongst the old homes is this abandoned one. So sad, it doesn't appear to be in too bad shape on the outside. But as we know with the Sad Stone House it could be a whole different story on the inside. Someone who shall remain nameless did not want me to climb up and peek in. The calico kitty totally ignored me.
We were home before getting too soaked. I wanted to try a new recipe for Apple Cake. I haven't tasted it yet but it smells heavenly!
I thought I might as well make a pot of applesauce too as we have so many apples. That I did taste and it is yummy!
I can't do a blog post without some sort of critter!
