Another Visit to the Audubon Center and Sanctuary

The Audubon Center and Sanctuary in Jamestown, NY, has got to be my most favorite place to visit. I have visited the center on four separate occasions this year alone.

I visited the Audubon Center with my friend, Linda H., this morning. Linda has visited the Audubon Center with her grandchildren; however, she had never walked any of the trails. We followed the blue trail a short distance to a photo blind overlooking Big Pond. It was a lovely morning. The temperature had the feel of autumn about it, cool but not cold. The sky was a pretty blue color with streaks of white clouds tossed about. The sun shone brilliantly, basking the earth in its warm glow. The colors of the changing leaves were gorgeous.

Before leaving the Audubon Center we paid a visit to Liberty, the resident eagle. It was Liberty’s lunch time.

Liberty looks like she is asking us what we are looking at!

It was time for OUR lunch when we left the Audubon Center. Linda and I ate lunch at Perkins Restaurant. Our lunches were inexpensive. Linda had a coupon for buy one entree get one free. To use the coupon we had to order a beverage, other than water. We each ordered from a special offer menu — lunch entrees for $5.99 each. Linda ordered a chicken salad sandwich with french fries, a petite salad, and a large homemade chocolate chip cookie. I ordered a ham and Swiss cheese sandwich with a petite salad, fruit cup and a chocolate chip cookie. Both of our sandwiches were half sandwiches, and the salads were tiny. When the menu says “petite”, it means petite. Our lunches were scrumptious and well worth the cost.

    Nice photo.-Did you know that Someone Knows my Name was published in Canada as The Book of Negroes and that book actually existed during the time?

    Great shots of the Audubon Center. I wanted to tell you the peacocks are at Sunset Hill Cemetary on Hunt Rd. Go in on Hunt and keep right. You can't miss them (unless the are away for the winter). Jean
