Susan & I just returned from a short trip to the Finger Lakes area of New York State which is most famous for the natural scenic beauty and the wine industry. Below are an aerial view of the numerous 'long' (i.e. finger-like) lakes in the area & towns on the lakes; the largest are Seneca Lake & Cayuga Lake; Keuka Lake is smaller and has two northern branches (looks like a sling-shot). We stayed in Watkins Glen at the southern end of Seneca Lake at the Harbor Hotel (pic of the hotel side facing the harbor & the scenic view that we had from our room - both from the web). We had 3 full days which included visits to wineries on Seneca Lake the first day, Keuka Lake on day two, and to Corning, NY museums on day three (there was a threat of rain). This travelogue will not have the history of my recent ones, so will concentrate on the scenery and the wineries. Dave .
