Still Traveling

So many sights and experiences, on the road.
Friday - got to Staten Island, NY. Spent some time with the relatives.

Saturday - the big party for Cay's grandma's 100 year birthday.
90 people showed up, a lovely catered event in a tent in the
backyard. Then went out until 1:30 am with a couple of Cay's old
buddies. Really good times!

Sunday - drove up to Mystic Seaport in Conneticut. Ate dinner at an
amazing restaurant on the ocean. Best Clam Chowder, ever!
Drove into the middle of Conneticut. Gorgeous!

Monday - Drove through the Adirondack Mountains, and then on to
Niagara Falls in New York. Walked along the falls
at night - they have them all light up. It was quite the sight.

Today - Explored the falls. Rode the Maid of the Mist boat to the base
of all 3 falls. Had to wear a rain poncho, because the water was
everywhere. Probabaly one of the coolest sights I've ever seen!
Then, sadly, started back. We are in a hotel somewhere in Indiana.

Tomorrow it is back through Chicago, and on to home. It will be good
to be back in my own bed, and to see the dog. But I will miss the road.
