On the road again … left home this morning for a trip to Watkins Glen NY. Short ride .. only 2 1/2 hours .. approx 170 miles. Staying at a KOA .. for now .. not too many folks around us .. plan is to stay for approx 8 nights .. since this will be our only site for this trip .. it will be our ‘base camp’ as we drive around and explore Watkins Glen / Finger Lakes area. We brought our kayaks with us .. plan is to launch them several times during this trip. Arrived at campsite around 2:30 .. unusually hot weather … 93 degrees … Casita AC doing a great job cooling us down. Long range forcast calls for one more hot day .. then temps dipping into more seasonal weather. After unpacking and setting up campsite .. we took a trip to the town of Watkins Glen… which is only 10 min away. Had a quick supper at restaurant with view of Lake Seneca .. then walked around town for awhile .. We’ve driven through Watkins Glen / Finger Lakes area several times .. this will be our first extended visit. Tomorrow we’ll head to Watkins Glen State Park for some hiking and hopefully some photo opportunities.
