Live from Clayton NY

We left home at 2:45 am Saturdayy and had the most glorious day.  LM did a great, relaxed job of driving, and our it was so beautiful with the colors of Fall emerging with a slight glow.  Our favorite drive so far was north up Rte 12 from Utica, NY....very interesting with many farms and spectacular vistas.  There were miles of goldenrod and wildflower meadows  in full bloom....a beautiful golden glow!
 Coming through one little town we were met with many blocked roads and the heavy smell of barbeque everywhere. As we got closer we found the main street filled with tables and it seemed there were people cooking on every corner. They were preparing for their annual cream cheese festival!!  We did come across a huge Kraft plant somewhere so it makes sense. Looked like they were in for a delicious day of celebration.  

Just after we stopped for breakfast at a very rural and rustic spot - a combination bar/diner/bowling alley - we had two huge pheasants fly right into the car windshield. They seemed to be unhurt. whew!

Never did finish this post with the rest of the 1000 Islands tour but will be back soon to do so. we are now in Waterloo Ontario with my sister and savoring every minute....LOVE to all!

For those concerned about Ms G, reports are that she is loving her time with "Aunt Lois."
