Approaching storm....

I usually shoot sunsets but tonight I thought I would get the approaching storm.  So you would think it was going to be a storm; but it was nothing more than a big bag of wind.  That's okay too as it took a lot of the leaves off the trees.

Uncle Bob is in the maroo

Roadtrip update part 1....

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

Weekend road trip......

Well, I wish I drove a Lamborghini, although I would prefer a red one.  On my bucket list but at the very bottom.  This may be the only item that I won't be able to check off.  Anyway, moving right along. My good friend and traveling companion Phyllis and I are heading out today for a weekend road trip.  We do have our destination planned and you will need to check back on Monday for pictures......  Have a great one as I know we will.  See ya !!!
