i live in one of the greatest cities in the world
no really...i do
i have lived here all my life
i moved away for a year
(a LONG time ago)
and it made me realize how much i took it all for granted
anyway...ever since the ducky tour...
i have been wanting to explore more of our
so...a local tour group was doing
'test' tours and i signed up...
(usually a $25 charge, but since it was a test, it was free !)
this week's tour was our local Mt washington
which is a town high above the 'downtown'
the views are fabuous...have been photographed by many a professional photographer...
and as i learned on the tour,
it is supposedly the second best view of a city in the world...
(sorry, cant remember what she said the first one was)
it was a dreary rainy day...
so i didnt get really great pics...
but here goes
one of the coolest parts of mt washington
is just getting there.
we have 2 sets of historic inclines on this hill side
we rode this one
for those not familiar with an incline
it runs on 2 tracks and a sort of pulley system
when one goes up the other comes down
my friend Tess and Jordan and Krystal
who i dragged with me on this dreary day
alot of people ride this everyday to work
isnt that amazing...what a great way to start your day
you can even bring your bike !
here's what they had to travel up before the incline was built...haha
can you imagine that walk every day !!!!
would keep you in shape i suppose !
and here is apic of what it looked like when it was first built
we have a really great city
and this summer i plan to stop taking it for granted
and explore more of it...
but this week...it's time to get back working
on the house....
tax season is over....
i have a couple weeks til my next show...
painting it is.............
