Last night we stayed in a motel in Skaneateles, New York, by Skaneateles Lake, one of the Finger Lakes. If a breakfast isn't provided with our room we try to eat where the locals eat and this strategy worked again this morning...good food and service at a nondescript diner in town.
It was misty and gray for a few hours this morning but 73 degrees most of the day. Most of our views today were quite muted, but still nice. We drove down the length of Cayuga Lake from Scenic Highway 20 and then back up to 20 along Seneca Lake. The Finger Lakes region is full of wineries, breweries, chocolate factories, cheese companies, produce stands, marinas, and resorts. I think the people that vacation here or live here have a lot of fun. There weren't very many people around today. In many places we visited we were the only tourists there.
Near Cayuga Lake we viewed the Taughannock Falls and we were surprised at its size and beauty.
Before settling into our motel here in Erie, Pennsylvania, we drove to Presque Isle State Park and walked a couple of short paths there. We
stopped by the impressive Tom Ridge Environmental Center.
I was craving Asian food tonight so found the #1 takeout place in Erie for some garlic chicken and fried rice. I found it without looking for it because it is right across the street from our motel. A hot bath sounds very good. We are headed to Cleveland tomorrow. Never ever thought I'd be going to Cleveland.
