Oldest original inn on the Erie Canal, Bushnell's Basin, New York
Last week, my husband and I visited with relatives in Upstate New York. The weather was dark and dreary, but that didn't stop my camera from snapping its shutter.
The Bushnell's Basin Hotel was built circa 1818 and served as a public house for more than a century. When the Erie Canal was opened in 1825, it was situated conveniently beside the canal.
But in the 1960s the building was abandoned until 1979 when it was restored and converted into a restaurant called Richardson's Canal House. Now the oldest original inn on the Erie Canal, it is included on the U.S. National Register of Historic Buildings.
She's totally oblivious of the shadows she's standing on. All she wants is to be let in. This is outside a shop in Port Perry, Ontario. As you can see by the lights, the shop is ready for Christmas shoppers.
Hmmm. I think the fairies were playing with this photo! Blame Rebecca at The Dusty Cellar because she posted a similar photo last week and also provided a link to Ashley Sisk's blog HERE for directions on how to do this.
The original photo was rather nondescript, taken on a dreary day although there were occasionally blue skies.

This old Volvo has been in the same place for at least a year, but I think someone moves it now and then to mow the grass. But maybe not. Check out THIS PHOTO I posted last February. Is the car in the exact same place?
It was a dreary day but the season's first snow had fallen the night before...just a dusting, really.
On a back road, I could barely see this bridge through a wall of cedars. How could I resist this photo op?
So I climbed down into the ditch, then up again, stepped over an old barbed wire fence, poked my head and camera through the cedars, and then clicked on the shutter. I'm glad I did!
