Warning: It's a long post, but mostly photos; not too wordy. We left Saturday for Selkirk Shores, a state park on the eastern shore of Lake Ontario. We've been camping with our friends, Bob and Cathy, for over 20 years. We used to go to the Adirondacks with our four kids, and climb one of the 40 High Peaks. Then, after the kids left home, we missed a few years. Now we go nearly every summer, but rarely do we hike. This weekend was no exception.
We did wander down to the lake after dinner on Saturday, but spend most of the weekend in Clayton, NY.
Some views of the beach:
One of the main reasons we went to Clayton was to visit the Antique Boat Museum.
I had no idea how much I would enjoy it. I took LOTS of photos, and think I may make a small soft cover book of them.
The museum itself is a treasure, and the gardens are gorgeous.
There are four or five buildings and we were able to take a tour of the Bolt/McNally house boat.
The curating of the displays was excellent, but it was the details of the restored boats that I enjoyed photographing the most.
And a final view of the St. Lawrence River from one of the boat houses.
The town of Clayton is lovely as well. We had fabulous pizza (pulled pork and a BLT) at the Wooden Boat Brewery before heading downtown.
My friend, Clara, and her husband have their names engraved on the yellow chair in honor of their 50th wedding anniversary. Clara's sister is the mayor of Clayton.
There are a number of wonderful murals painted on the sides of buildings, but this one was my favorite.
I managed to capture three more items for Rinda's Summer Scavenger Hunt, but I'm saving them for the end of the month recap. I'll be back tomorrow with some Zoom In, Zoom Out photos from the weekend as well!
