Lake Seneca

Hi Dear Folk,

More travels, from our trip last weekend. We had arranged to meet The Boy at 5:00pm, he had things to get done in the morning and had to work in the afternoon.  So we had the whole day free to explore.  We were up and out by 8:30am and our first stop was for breakfast at Curly's, just a real ma and pa place, where a lot of older folk were meeting together for morning breakfast and having a lot of fun and laughs together, nice to see.

Mr. B's favourite meal is breakfast so he was happy.  Eggs, bacon, sausage, homefries, toast and a side of French Bread and maple syrup.  This was the giant breakfast and Mr. B. is up for that.  Now we will have a good day because he is a bear if he does not eat breakfast.

We headed up to Watkins Glenn but did not visit the falls here, which is an all day thing, well maybe not all day, but ones energy would be seriously depleted.  We've done the walk several times before, best to go from the top down and not from the bottom up.  So a nice drive along the lake was for us.  Stopping off at one winery.

Here is a little information about the Finger Lakes region.

U.S. Salt Company on the edge of Lake Seneca.  See here in reference to Seneca Salt

Just one of the many vineyards on both sides of Lake Seneca.  The area is similar to the Rhine Region in Germany for climate and some of the vistas.  There are so many wineries where one can partake in a wine tasting.

I love this shot of the birds, gathering and flying and then gathering again.  I think they are starlings.  This was on the road leading down to the Miles Winery, where we did stop, more later.



  1. I agree with Mr. B on breakfast but don't think I could eat that much. The information board on the Finger Lakes is interesting as is the info on the salt co. Your photos are so good and I love the skies.

  2. Such a beautiful place. Hugs and hope Mr. B gets another good breakfast today.
