Lynnie, in need of a haircut, spotted a salon as we passed through Auburn. A block or so beyond it, I saw a church parking lot and pulled in. She went to the salon and I started the generator and was happily serfing (it's the truth, I'm addicted) on the 'net. A knock came to the door and a "fine individual" explained that school would shortly let and I'd be inundated with cars and kids. No problem for me, I like them both, says I
. He said he'd ask someone to call the principal and tell her the situation. I waited. Shortly later, as Lynnie returned, she met a woman who appeared to be nun and explained the situation. She curt, so I assumed even moreso that she was a nun. No offense Mary... She told us to stay put and wait until the storm passed. Not many kids and not too many cars appeared and we were on the road again. Cayuga Lake is just south of Seneca Falls. It's a very large lake and quite beautiful. The temperature is in the mid-sixties today, a great improvement for us. The clouds are gorgeous! I got a couple of shots of them for your enjoyment. I also did a short video around our campsite. Not too many birds have returned, although we could hear several cardinals on our walk. I did get a decent photo of a robin on a red-colored branch. The afternoon lighting has a tendency to redden colors, so it turned out good. Hopefully we'll have a good sunset tonight and I'll finally get a long-awaited sunset. Check back later if you are interested. That's all folks... for now anyway.
Today we decided to avoid toll roads, so last night we planned our trip on NY Route 20 West. Man oh man did we go through towns, villages, burroughs and even a household or two. It was a decent trip however, and we made decent time. The hills of upstate New York are unbelievable! Shorty spent very little time in high gear, constantly downshifting and then coasting down the hill to start it all over again. If you think Montana has hills, come out here and see the reality.
