Back to Canandaigua Lake (Blog Post #14)

After we visited with Molly’s grandpa, we decided to go to Wegman’s so we could get a picnic lunch.  Then we drove back to Canandaigua Lake for our lunch.

It was an absolute beautiful day so the lake was filled with lots of people enjoying the water.

When we finished eating, we walked along the shore line to Scoops for some ice cream.  Even though I have already shared photos of Scoops, I have included the photos I took of Scoops in the video.

It was an exceptionally hot day in Rochester.  I had packed jeans which was a mistake.  The walk along the shore was exhausting because of the heat.  The ice cream was a welcome treat.

The lake had an area where people could swim with a life guard.  There is a photo of the fence in area in the video.  I’m used to swimming pools so swimming in a lake is unusual for me.

Oh, when you see a photo with boats just “parked” in the middle of the lake, there are sand bars.  People dock their boats there and fish, swim, or just hang out there.

Enjoy the video!  (It’s 4 minutes long.)

I’m enjoying making videos from my photos so expect the rest of my travel blogs to have a video rather than just photos.

Have a magical day,
Traci

Over winter break, I discovered how to make a video with the photos I have taken.  Instead of a collage, I have a YouTube video of the Sunday morning of my trip.

Letchworth State Park – Visitor’s Center, Inspiration Point, and Upper Falls (Blog Post 12)

After going to the Middle Falls, we went to the Vistor’s Center.  I finally found Hubby’s souvenir from my trip.  I found a magnetic that is a piece of wood from one of the trees in the park with the words Letchworth State Park etched into the magnetic.  So cool!

Letchworth State Park – Tea Table (Wolf Creek), Middle Falls (Blog Post 11)

Have you ever been to a place that reminds you of a hymn that you have sung your whole life?  A hymn that was your grandpa’s favorite hymn.

I have spoken about this hymn and how Letchworth State Park reminds me of this song.

Letchworth State Park – Mt. Morris Dam, Overlooks, and St. Helena Trail (Blog Post #10)

On Saturday of my trip, Molly and her husband took me to Letchworth State Park.  Letchworth State Park is located about 35 miles south of Rochester.  It’s a 17 miles north to south.

Letchworth is known as the Grand Canyon of the East with the Genesee River creating canyons that are as deep as the Grand Canyon in Arizona.

Seneca Falls – The Visitor’s Center Museum (Blog Post #8)

While we were in Geneva, New York, the volunteer/ worker at the tourist information suggested Seneca Falls.  It was about 20 minutes east of where we were at that moment.  Molly had never been there before so we decided to take her advice.

She actually gave us two pieces of great advice.  Seneca Falls and Char Burrito Bar.
