Summer Ramblings - Down by the River

(With apologies to the Standells) 

Downtown Binghamton, New York is trying to reinvent itself.  For the past several years, it has had a trail along its river, the Chenango. (There is a second river, the Susquehanna, which meets the Chenango at what is called Confluence Park.  Today, I'd like to show you a little of the Chenango.

Growing up, I fell in love with a song about Boston, by a group called the Standells.

If Binghamton, New York, had its own song, it might have lyrics like these:

Down by the river....

That's where you'll find me on a lovely afternoon like last Friday.

Binghamton, you're my home. (Not quite, I only work there.)

I have a love/hate relationship with Binghamton, but last Friday, the mood was love.

As for the mosaics in the first picture: as soon as I have time, I will feature more of them in a future post.

Thank you, readers, for keeping me company on a summer's day lunch walk.


  1. What a delightful place to walk, Alana. You are blessed. And I have a special fondness for mosaics and would love to see more!

  2. That looks like a great walk.

  3. It looks so peaceful and beautiful. Thanks for sharing
