Brief Walk Through Geneva

 Yesterday,  when Mark dropped Michelle and I off to walk over to the makeover home,  we walked back to where we were dropped off only to find that Mark had driven away! That would normally be no problem, but when we tried to call Mark from my cell phone, I kept getting a cryptic “cannot connect for unknown reason” message. Exasperated, Michelle kept repeating she  had no idea why my phone had no signal whatsoever in Geneva. In all honesty, I felt clueless as well.

So…in temperatures so hot, one was sweating while  sitting still,  Michelle and I began walking. I figured that if we got near the main highway,  the phone would certainly be able to ring Mark up. As we walked on and on,  I realized what the problem was!

Since our cell phones are more computer than phone, they need a rebooting from time to time,  just as a computer does.  Sure enough, as soon as the phone restarted, the meter read  “full signal”!

The little walk along several blocks didn’t hurt Michelle or me a bit,  and we actually found ourselves in awe of some of the architecture we passed! As we came closer and closer to this “tower” on the Episcopal church,  I loved the little “spires” with their unique design.

As we passed the front of the church,  the sign surely made worshippers welcome. Taken from tthe verse Isaiah 56:7…

“Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.”

This stone church is so beautiful and although I couldn’t find the date on the building,  I do believe it is an old structure. I love the wooden doors in the front….

During our walk, we passed this building located across the street.  It is the Geneva Historical Society Museum and I would love to visit there.

At the top of the hill where these buildings are located, everything looks very very old.  These houses all overlook beautiful Seneca Lake. The row houses are so impressive and I love the way each is painted a different color to distinguish individual homes.

Here is a peek between some of the buildings and you can see the hotel I showed a few days ago below.  This is just at street level,  and I cannot imagine the view from the second or third stories of these homes!

I will certainly be visiting Geneva again with my camera in hand.  It would appear there is some interesting history located here!

Today was a workday, clearing all of the debris from the trees I cut down. I am so tired from all  of the work, and I think I discovered some new muscles I never knew existed!
