We went for a bike ride at Seneca Lake State Park. Day 2 and counting. After showers we headed east to Auburn and Skaneateles.Auburn had some beautiful homes along the highway.Very Nice Fire Station in Skaneateles.Nice B&BBeautiful churchesDowntown waterfront and boat tours of Skaneateles Lake.
By now you are probably wondering, How do you pronounce the name of that town? It is pronounced either Skinny-Atlas or Skany-Atlas depending on who you talk to.This is the proper pronunciation.
This is a tourist town. The shop owner we talked to said a lot of people come from New York city and Jersey to their camps at the Lake. We probably would not have come here if my brother Bill Davis had not suggested it. He does Asset Verification. He travels around the country and inventories peoples houses, with photos and appraisals. Then the homeowner knows exactly what they have in contents and so does the Insurance Company. He did a house in Skaneateles and suggested we visit.I wonder if it was this one?St.James Episcopal ChurchThe view from the church.Moravian Missionaries built the first shelter here in 1750.Beautiful homes along the main drive.The Skaneateles Library. I love it.I wish we were going to be here for this.To Lunch, also recommended by my brother Bill.Order here and they call your name.By the time we left, you could not find a seat.Across the street.The Polo ClubNice house!Back through Seneca Falls towards Waterloo.And home to a wonderful sunset.
Next stop the Sampson State Park and the Sampson Naval and Air Force Museum.
