Postcard from Hamilton: mini-potpourri

Eight miles east of Hamilton is Beamer's falls, which like many of the
other falls we visited, was disappointingly dry this year. Across from the falls was an old abandoned barn I thought was picturesque.

The second picture shows the dry creek bed of the Devil's punchbowl
creek (WAHN!) See more pix of the dry creeks and falls here.

The third an orthodox church we passed on the way back toward Hamilton. I didn't get its name or location, but it is at the top of the escarpment just east of Hamilton. If anyone knows its
name and location, let me know.

We will be home today but LEAVING again Thursday morning for upstate
NY for my photo show at Westcott Gallery there. Be back next Monday or
Tuesday.

Very nice pictures. I particularly like the old barn; and of course Orthodox churches are always interesting. Have a good trip.

Thanks so much Joy, Anonymous, and Dick for your very kind comments.

Yes, we had a wonderful time, as we almost always do when we go anywhere together. :-D Hamilton is a lovely city and we had fun exploring it! YAY!

We LOVE the escarpment! Woohoo escarpment!

You know I'm a sucker for barn shots too. That one looks like it could've been taken near me!

YUP. I love barns, old barns are great. It's my favorite of the three.

Thanks North Bay and Erin! :-D
