OUT AND ABOUT
BALLSTON SPA, NEW YORK Click on pictures to enlarge.
So, this day out and about was in Ballston Spa. Just about 17 miles from my little bungalow, along Route 50. Route 50 is a great drive, there is plenty of stopping and shopping along the way. We did stop at a Dollar Tree in Glenville to check out what Halloween stuff that was left. Getting out of the car and looking off to the left saw a pretty site through the trees.
A few of the many antiques shops along Front Street.
A sweet quilt and fabric shop on Washington Street, there are a few more shops down Washington Street.
And a little Ballston Spa history too, Ballston Spa in Saratoga County has a few natural spring fountains, this one in the business district in no longer functioning but still maintained. Along with a small town park and a walking trial at the Old Iron Spring.
And, the birth place of Civil War Hero Abner Double Day, who is also commonly associated with the birth of baseball.

Maybe a quick stop at Dunkin Donuts to pick up some fun Halloween donuts. Then relaxing with Celestial Seasonings pumpkin spice tea and pumpkin vanilla cream filed donut.
