Jun 25, 2015 - Lake Ontario

Jainan – Well, here we are again, you’re inevitably reading the accounts of our boisterous journeys, we are adventuring through the great outback ;). Just kidding. So, we saw Lake Ontario six days ago. My mother wants us to see all five great lakes on this trip. At a little campground called South Shores in Sodus Pont, Ney York. We had fun at this little campground. The best part was watching Taira attempt to swing. I could not, for the life of me, stop laughing. It was hilarious. The second best part was watching the sun set over Lake...

East Loop Trip 2015

Oct 4, 2014 - Heading to Lake Ontario

Today we began the return trip from the Finger Lakes area of New York. One last waterfall view just a couple of miles north of our campsite. It was a beautiful drive up along the east shore of Lake Cayuga. We stopped in Auburn NY, home of William Seward ... the man who purchased Alaska from Russia for the United States. He was Secy of State under Presidents Lincoln and Johnson. Seward was seriously wounded on the same night as Lincoln's assassination by a co-conspirator of John Wilkes Booth ... a story I had forgotten. On to Lake Ontario...

Sep 20, 2012 - Sodus Point Lighthouse

After visiting Chimney Bluffs, we headed to the Sodus Point Lighthouse which is on Sodus Point on Lake Ontario, New York. The original lighthouse has been replaced by a modern skeleton tower which is, of course, disappointing. There is also a 2 1/2 story limestone keepers quarters on the property. It was built in 1871 and is currently used as a museum. The pier and shore light served simultaneously from 1834 until 1901. For a history of this lighthouse, see: http://www.lighthousefriends.com/light.asp?ID=305

Our 2012 Travels

Jun 30, 2012 - Sodus Point, NY

Hi All, We spent the night here at Sodus Point, it was a pretty little RV-Campground. This is on the edge of Lake Ontario on the New York side. As you can see we watched the sun go down. Leaving here in the morning and heading to a RV park close to Niagara Fall area. I believe we will be about an half hour away. Going to the Canadian side first. We are doing well, just trucking alone. Have a good 4Th of July! Until Later, Jim and Kathy

Jun 7, 2012 - The Last Week

Last week we worked Friday from 8AM to 10PM, Saturday from 8AM to 8PM and Sunday from 8AM to 6PM. Monday we started our 4 days off. Monday was spent doing laundry, washing the car and running errands. OK but not so much fun. Then we drove over to the Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania. Just to take a fast look before Lucky and Joe visit us later this month and we really explore the place. Tuesday I went to the range for three hours of "Zen and the Rifle". In the afternoon we muddled around the coach and Ivory did some school prep work. Yesterday...

Jun 27, 2008 - Chimney Bluffs on Lake Ontario

The shore of Lake Ontario is just 25 miles from our campsite. So today we went exploring. On our state map we noticed as state park located on Lake Ontario, but included a notation that it was undeveloped. However, one of the brochures indicated that it was a great place to view the lake and the Chimney Bluffs. The brochure also mentioned trails so we went to take a look. Apparently, the Chimney Bluffs, or more specifically the “drumlin” on which the bluffs originated, was a hill created by the movement of glacial ice dumping sand, clay,...

New York, 2008

Aug 11, 2006 - Sodus Bay

The good folks at the Elks lodge reccommended things to do and see while in the area, which I love because that is always the best things to see. So yesterday after taking our truck in for an oil change in Geneva, we visited a winery and the Seward House/Museum in Auburn. It is the historic, beautifully preserved home of William H. Seward and his family (Sect'y of State for Abe Lincoln & responsible for purchase of Alaska - Remember Sweard's Folly). It is filled with early masterpieces of American art and family history. The house evolved...
