A Wonderful Drive

September 28, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

I have been holding off as long as I could not to be accused of accelerating the arrival of winter but there is no hiding it now. Colors are popping all around us and the pace has accelerated dramatically over the last few days. And now that a cool down and rain are coming, I hope it is going to leave some leaves up for all of us to enjoy before the dreaded season of grey is upon us.

These pictures are from about this time last year as we were heading east from Buffalo to Syracuse, New York. As anywhere and any time the best idea always is to get off the expressway. And we certainly did, even if only for a section. We had a planned stop that we enjoyed very much. Afterwards, instead of heading back to I-90 we continued east on the smaller roads.

All along the way we were surrounded by wonderful colors and not constantly stopping was very difficult. However, the trip had a goal that required actually making it to the destination on schedule. At one point we crossed through a small intersection and as I was checking the traffic from the left I saw it. I saw the gorgeous old water tower and was not going to miss it. We turned around, made a right turn, pulled over to the side of the road and out I headed with my camera.

And it turned out the location was even more generous. I wanted to check the tower out from the other direction too to make sure I would not miss an even better shot. While I did not find a better angle on the water tower I found this super antiques shop hiding in the colorful foliage of the season.

So get off the expressway, turn off the GPS for a few minutes, and just go wherever you feel like. It's a strangely liberating feeling that I love to employ as often as possible whether on the road or at home. You'd be surprised what you can find around the place you live if you allow yourself to take a few random turns.

Enjoy The Beauty That Surrounds You! #etbtsy
