Leaf-Peeping - The Seaway Trail

Early morning - Little Sodus Bay

Note - clicking on photos enlarges them

After spending an day at the Pleasant Beach Hotel, Joan and I decided to take a leaf-peeping trip along the Seaway Trail.

After driving through Wolcott we visited Chimney Bluffs State Park.

This is the park entrance.

Joan and I walked north on a paved sidewalk to the bluff above the shoreline and took this photo.

We drove to Connelly's Cove on Sodus Bay and took this photo from the dock.

We drove around Sodus Bay to the Lighthouse Museum.

On our way to Pultneyville we scored a NYS Historical Marker.

Location - N 43° 16.837 W 077° 10.155

We stopped at the Good Old Days Country Shop in Pultneyville. Joan made a few purchases.

Then we motored to the Yellow Mills Diner on Rt-31 in Palmyra for lunch. Joan selected the Greek salad and I ordered the soup of the day (Chicken with pasta) and a Chicken Caesar wrap. As always the service here was quick and the meal tasty.

We then did three geocaches along the Erie Canal in Clyde.

First - GCY5KE - three boys were fishing from the dock near the cache.

Second - GC1GT0A - Lock E26 - there was a garter snake in the grass - fortunately it was dead.

Third - GC1GVK1 - Lock E26 - met Floyd, the lockmaster - two men were fishing below the lock.

We headed home and arrived safely.
