Our trip up the turnpike did include pulling over for a few pictures of the brilliant colors and a few wind mills way off in the distance on the top of the mountain. A bit difficult to see but they were there. .
I was pleasantly surprised with the colors because of how dry our summer was.
We arrived in New York safe and sound with it raining and windy.
Our destination was....
Hammondsport, NY located on Keuka Lake part of the Finger Lake region near Watkins Glen, NY.
We spent Friday night just catching up and we did head out for a bit to eat. Had a restful nights sleep and headed out the next day with cloudy skies and very windy. Phyllis and I enjoy visiting a few wineries and some tastings. Our first stop was Catharine Valley. An older barn converted into a wine tasting/gift shop. I did not take pictures inside any of the places we visited, too many other people that may not have wanted to be photographed.
I did send Phyllis across the road to get her picture. She is always a good sport.
Looking down and following the falls. I was not sure how to get further down to get additional shots maybe next year.
As we returned to town, Watkins Glen, we stopped at the park to get some pictures of Senaca Lake. The lake has white caps as the wind was just blowing. Senaca Lake is know as being more affected by the wind and this just proves it.
I will continue with addition photos from day 2 later today so be sure to check back.
