Speaking of which....
But from the top, up several sets of grim, concrete steps, redolent of a London sink council estate, there is a rather nice view. Of Buffalo's city hall in the haze. Far too big now for the declining city. Stalin gothic crossed with art deco but it has a certain magnificence. To the right of it is the second ugliest building in Western New York. According to hubby, who's been in there, the long thin, narrow, inset windows harbour legions of spiders and are impossible to clean.
In another direction, you can just see the skyway, another misconceived gem of city planning, which hampers any kind of attractive development along the lakefront. There's talk of it being pulled down. A very good idea. In the foreground nestle our boat docks.
And from another side, you can see Canada. The brown water is mud churned up by the river which flows into the lake.
Typical Lake Erie chop but a beautiful day nevertheless.
