Sunrises and sunsets can be very dramatic in the Finger Lakes region, but this sunrise might have been one of the most beautiful I have seen. This summer has brought rain and thunderstorms, which has given us some fantastic cloud formations.
And, rainbows. So many rainbows. We had double rainbows three evenings in a row.
This past weekend there were two Lavender festivals. I attended the one in Skaneateles. It was as if I transported myself to Provence.
My favorite summer activity here is fruit picking. Cherries for $2.49 a pound. Western NY is actually the second most agriculturally rich area in the USA – in terms of variety and abundance – Sonoma, CA is ahead of us.
I love to travel, but home is pretty great at this time of year.
