Lakes #AtoZChallenge #SkywatchFriday

Growing up in New York City, I wanted to go to the Finger Lakes one day.

I never dreamed that I would live, one day, an hour or so from the Finger Lakes.  What a beautiful area it is, and the skies and water will captivate you.
From a sunset on Canandaigua Lake, in Canandaigua...

...to boats on Cayuga Lake, in Ithaca, in early May...
to Seneca Lake, and  parasailing in Geneva in early fall....
To another sunset, in Skaneateles, on Skaneateles Lake.

Linking to Skywatch Friday, where bloggers from all over the world show their pictures of the sky.

I have so many memories of the Finger Lakes, as I journey through time and space.

Two bonuses for you:

This promotional piece shows you a lot of the beauty of the Finger Lakes area. Feel free to only view the first minute or so.

And bonus #2: Cornell Alma Mater song, played on chimes.

  2. I have a former co-worker who grew up in the Finger Lakes area. She had wonderful stories to tell. I have often wanted to visit and really have no excuse not to make the trip.

  3. Ah, the Finger Lakes. I have been to most of them a few times. And, I've found a slew of other wonderful lakes around the US (and the world). Maybe it's just the water I love.

  6. I've always lived near water until I moved to the Midwest. It's my dream to get out of here and retire to a place of peace by the water.
