Spencerport, N.Y.


As I mentioned in my previous post, today I took some comp time from work and did some “roadgeeking” in the Rochester area of the state. I took over 100 photos for archival purposes for my web site. Let’s hear it for digital photography!

Earl was kind enough to make me lunch before leaving for his business trip, so I had my lunch pail packed and ready to go this morning when I awoke. I found myself in Spencerport at lunch time. Spencerport is situated along the famous Erie Canal, hence the “port” in it’s name. I never knew this but some of the bridges over the canal in this area are lift bridges. Instead of a traditional draw bridge, the whole bridge goes up and down in tandem. While I didn’t get a chance to see the one on Main Street in Spencerport in action, I did read about it while enjoying lunch at one of the Canalway Trail picnic areas. I posed for a picture next to the information board for posterity. Let’s hear it for digital photography with built-in timer!

The lunch was delicious too.
