We are now in a small campground 1.5 miles outside Watkins Glen, NY. We are the only people here. We arrived on Tuesday and after setting up we went grocery shopping at the P&C. We are beginning our personal collection of grocery discount cards. On Wednesday we walked around town and along Seneca Lake. We decided to stop at a brewpub for a snack (our first restaurant since leaving) and as we crossed the street we saw Ray & Sharon Thistlethwaite standing in front of the place. They had left PA the same day we did and have been touring the finger lakes. After lunch together Nanc & I walked the gorge in Watkins Glen State Park. It is about a three mile round trip and the scenery was spectacular. Even though it was in the 90's it was nice and cool in the gorge. This morning we walked about 5.5 miles through the state park. This afternoon we went to a laundromat and did about five loads of laundry. We have a washer/dryer in the motor home but you must be hooked up to sewers to used it and the loads are very small. We need to change the way we do laundry and do a bit every day when we have full hook-ups. The road the campground is on was part of the original Grand Prix course when the first road race was run here after WWII. The last photo shows the start finish line.
