Better Late Than Never! Sept. 2009

We left Kattskill Bay, NY yesterday. We had hoped for an early start, but that was not to be. Scotty had so much to do to get ready to leave that it took us longer than we had thought. Then we couldn't get the boat loaded on the car top racks. That took forever! Then we found that the bike rack was broken and he had to fix that... Well, you get the picture I'm sure. We actually never got on the road until 4:30 PM. we drove 4 house and stopped at the home of Mark, Kathy & Billy Harris for the night. They live right on Cayuga Lake, NY. What a nice spot to live. They have flower beds, veggie gardens and kayaks, fishing boats, a dock, a place to swim in their back yard! Osprey next not 50 feet from their dock. They have geese, ducks and herons too. Next time we hope to spend more that one night. Kathy even made a Chocolate cake! My favorite kind. We had talked about our mothers both making it when we were together in Maine. It was very sweet of her.

This morning we we got an earlier start. We made good time on the I-90 but had an extra (and unplanned) spin around downtown Buffalo, NY. That only added another 30 minutes to our trip, so not bad. I had never been there anyway. We crossed into Canada at Niagara Falls, NY. The line at the crossing wasn't bad and we only ended up waiting about 15 minutes in all. Much faster than Mexico. We are staying at Shalamar Lake Trailer & Family Park in Queenston, Ontario, Canada. It is only about 5 miles from Niagara Falls which is where we went for dinner. We found a nice restaurant with a second level deck overlooking the falls. Scotty had a hamburger and fries and I had Baby Back Ribs and fries. We each had a draft beer to wash it down. It was great.
