Perry Part 1: Storytime

For years my family has been going to Letchworth State Park. On our way there we pass through the town of Perry. I have always admired the quaint little town and as a child marveled at the downtown core (as an adult I view the downtown area a little differently). On our most recent camping trip my sister and I decided to walk its streets and see all it has to offer. My main objective was to take photographs, but other things happened along the way.

First, we stopped by this great thrift shop! If you follow me on Pinterest or Twitter you may already know about my love for second-hand stores. Not only do I love a good deal, but I mostly feel good about reusing an item rather than always buying new. I try to be environmentally conscious.

Anyways, the deals at this store were great! The staff was also very friendly. We ended up purchasing three, 1000 piece puzzles for 25 cents! If ever in Perry (New York) please stop by The Community Clothes Closet and Thrift Store.

As we continued our travels I was excited to find IMG_4515a Little Free Library! It’s the first I had ever seen! I have been following Little Free Library on Twitter and always wondered where these things pop up! Well the posts are true, these mini libraries do exist and they follow the reuse and give motto.

Finally, I can’t forget to mention here, the wonderful posters outside a store that promotes animal health as well as the importance of spaying or neutering your animals. I took a picture of my favourite sign:IMG_4525

Stay tuned for the actual photographs I am proud to say I took that have more of an artist’s flare.

Thanks for reading!

Halifax: Part 2

After our Keith’s tour we spent the day walking around Halifax; specifically around historic sights. I took many photos that may have been questionable to the common tourist as I fell in love with the brick walls,Brick Wall Rust

and signs on the historic properties.

We had lunch right on the water; at Salty’s. What was really great about this place was the fact that there were not a lot of tourists filling the patio. It was peaceful and yet we had one of the best views of the harbour. Where was everyone?! The food was excellent and the visitors were kind; as in the birds sat quietly and watched us, hopeful in wait.

The begging birds reminded me of my pug and how much I missed him.

I digress.

Later that night we had dinner at another place along the pier, the Waterfront Warehouse. They had a great selection of oysters. I thoroughly enjoyed the scallops. We were able to sit out on the patio and ended up hanging around for a few hours. The food, music, and view were amazing!

Again, prepare yourself for another unorthodox view of the restaurant:

Our first day in Halifax was great and it will be a day we will always cherish.
