This weekend we hit the Finger-Lakes area of New York. The stay at the Econolodge at Painted Post, was more than comfortable for the price; the staff made it almost luxurious. The drive from central PA was beautiful with the green hills of scenic 15 N. We lunched at Sushi O sake at Ithaca, NY-a quaint neighborhood buzzing with young Cornell kids, the sun made the outdoor lunching fun. They had a varied menu, the Sushi- delicious and the server amiable. Buttermilk falls was a disappointment, was more of a everyday trail park than what you’d want to see after driving a hundred miles, very much unlike the next stop--Watkins Glen . The stony gorge was a photographers paradise- the trail winding behind the gushing falls was exhilarating. We stopped at a local ice cream place for some homemade fudge, they had a collection of milk bottles from all around the country! They had the some chocolate/vanilla/cookie crumb icecream cake which I got for my friends birthday. The next day was exclusively for Keuka lake. We tasted some wine at some wineries (Keuka Spring was the best, Rooster wasn’t that good), drove on the beautiful Route 54 all the way to Penn Yan, barbequed our lunch. The state park wasn’t as good as we expected though. We took 54A to Hammondsport. Hammondsport was pretty little town nice waterfront eateries. The next day was spent at the glorious electrifying Corning Museum of Glass, the takeaway message—we gotta come again.
