Lock on Erie Canal...AGAIN!!
We slept in this morning since we were so tired last night after yesterday’s excursion. The outside temperature is warming up—59 degrees this morning—with a lovely blue sky. Pulling out of camp at 9:45 we headed to Adams, NY, on the first part of another scavenger hunt. We stopped at 10:25 at a golf club that our friend Pat McG. had played at many years ago. In 1968 she had won the Ladies Club Championship for that year
We left the golf club around 10:45 and headed towards Macedon, NY past Syracuse driving mostly on I-81 and I-90. It was a very nice drive and since the roads were in pretty good shape we enjoyed it. The temperature was in the upper 70’s by mid afternoon.
After passing through Palmyra, NY (which is a lovely little village) we stopped at yet another lock on the Erie Canal just outside of Macedon. If you remember, I told you that if we were close to a canal there WOULD be a side trip to it! The canal park was lush and attractive. From there we drove through Macedon which is also a nice-looking village.
After looking around that area for awhile, we headed towards Canandaigua, NY for two reasons. First we have been told by no less than two friends that we needed to go see it
The area between Macedon and Canandaigua was a lovely one. There were many very large, well kept, older homes on our route and also some large farms with large fields. We saw a different type of outside finish on several houses. Of course we were driving by and couldn’t see too closely, but they appeared to have been sided by small, round river rocks. There would be one layer of the river rocks, and then what appeared from a distance to be a very narrow slice of concrete—it wasn’t mortar as it was much to straight for that. These rows of alternating small river rocks and a layer of narrow concrete covered the whole house
We pulled into the Canandaigua/Rochester KOA at 5:35 (temp: 78 degrees) which was EXACTLY what we said we would NOT do today as we wanted to get into camp earlier. This is apparently high camping season in this area of NY and there were only grassy sites with just electric and water available. We were OK with that as we only needed electricity tonight and are thankful that we got a site as they only have a few left.
We have had a lovely day today and drove 170 miles. Now, as for tomorrow’s itinerary…well, let’s just say...stay tuned. There may be a "bucket list" check off coming! There are a few things that I did NOT tell you about our day today!
