In order not to spend a whole day driving, instead of going right home, we stayed overnight in the NY Finger Lakes. Here we AirBNB'd a little villa next to vineyards on Seneca Lake. The price was about half that of the previous night, and OMG, OMG, such a way better choice than a Holiday Inn.



There are about a hundred wineries in the Finger Lakes, but in my experience you should visit two per day. Because you taste about five wines at each one.

We didn't have much time in order to drive home before dark, so we did our two right in a row. The best of these was McGregor Vineyards, which I had visited 20 years earlier and was still awesome.



That's the trip. It was a great one!

Very nice!

I had not heard of that cave before. The bridge looks a little familiar, like I might have seen pictures of it once. I think it would be fun to visit both.

Did your phone know the instant you crossed over into Canada and offer you some expensive roaming package if you clicked a button, even though it could have connected to the US towers across the river?

Yes, yes it did!

I ignored that and just went on my way, feeling all uncertain of whether I was going to incur charges accidentally, so I turned off data. This led to a little comedy of errors, when the Hilton offered free WiFi if I signed up for their something something. I signed up and they emailed me a code to get free WiFi. Uhhh... how'm I gonna get that email exactly?

Even connecting with cell data, the email never came. Eventually I just paid for the WiFi and felt idiotic. The email finally arrived, a little late...! (But at least I paid in Canadian dollars so I did save 20% on it.)

Yep. And people camp in the area all summer - there's no particular restriction of access. It's a beautiful area.
