Venturing On into New York

2013 New England, New York, Road Trip, States

Even before breakfast we gave a tour of the T@B to our neighbors. Then we hooked up and headed east. First on the lake shore drive then on US-20. We drove though that little section of Pennsylvania. Stopped in Erie at a big grocery that had awesome meats and produce but very long checkout lines. Opted out. Further east we stopped at farm stand and got some exceedingly fresh sweet corn, red and yellow cherry tomatoes, and plums. Just over the border in Westfield, New York we stopped at Johnson Estate Winery, the oldest in the area. Mary helped us with the tasting and she was fabulous. We came away with some wonderful NY wines including two made from early 1600 recipes. Spiced wines such as those made for Queen Elizabeth I’s coronation. And some great local cheeses. Yancey’s Fancy. She directed us to the local KOA just across the road from Lake Erie. We saw the oldest natural gas fueled lighthouse and a beautiful replica of an old ship. We went into town to the Tops Supermarket and got some provisions including some steak. Back at camp we did laundry and got a charcoal fire going. Salad with fresh tomatoes first. Then charcoal grilled corn on the cob. Then after giving a tour of the T@B, charcoal grilled steaks. Way too much for one meal. Oh, the taste of charcoal grilled foods. Yes! And a beautiful full moon too!

Magerøya Island

We made it to the Top of the World, or at least the northernmost land mass in Europe, Magerøya Island. On our coach tour we learned much about the natural history and the cultures of this starkly beautiful place.
