Yesterday, we decided to venture out for the day.
We had a general direction in mind
drive North, seeking water
Sometimes you don't realize all the great places you have to visit in your own "backyard".
Drive by the Chautauqua Institution, a big summer destination for people from all
around the world. More than one of our presidents has visited here
Our first stop was at the Dart Airfield in Hartfield, NY for their Sunday Flea Market
No Luck, No Goodies
grab lunch at The Corner Deli in Hartfield
oh and what do I see across the street..... a Yard Sale
neat birdhouse $6.00
Continue north to Westfield, NY, home of the Welch's Grape Juice Co.,
right in the middle of grape country and a hot spot along the
Just a bit further north, Barcelona, NY
along the shore of Lake Erie
Brrrrr, not a very good day for the shore
but, we did walk a bit, looking for beach glass and drift wood
White caps and wind
Back on the road, driving East along the shore
now headed back towards Mayville
more water ... Chautauqua Lake - lots to do in and around this area
Toured the Old Train Depot Museum
inside looking out at the lake
Here she comes!
in operation since 1976, I was aboard this beauty as a kid
Sailboat and view across the lake
found this bowl at a garage sale in town - $2
Back home....getting warmed up
a BIG surprise
through the door comes Austin,
didin't expect him to come home for a visit
He sure surprised us!
Perfect Ending to a Perfect Day
Hope ya'll enjoyed your weekend!
