Escaping August Heat

Finger Lakes here we come!  August is the perfect time to head north as it's been a tad toasty in the low country lately.

We're heading back to our old stomping grounds on Conesus Lake.  It's the very last Finger Lake, located about 45 minutes south of Rochester, NY.  Rob's folks have a summer place there. 

The weather has not been real great in western NY this year.  When my in-laws complain, you know it's bad.  They are die-hard Rochesterians
and will never admit to any foul weather.  However, anyone who has spent any time in that part of NY knows that foul weather and gray skies occur more times than not.

One of the many things I like about nature journaling is capturing the same location over and over.  Here are some of the many faces of the same view.

The dogs will be happy to sit on the pontoon boat once again.  Things will be very different for Grizz though, now that she's blind. It will surely be a gut ache for Rob and me as she loved to stand on the dock and look into the water to watch the fish or lay on the boat and just gaze out over the lake.  

We've remembered to pack long pants and sweats.  I'm being real optimistic by not including a turtleneck :)

I'll be posting again in a couple of weeks.  I hope to be able to finish up my July wildflower finds while enjoying the view from the pontoon boat.  Ahhhhhh, vacations.  Got to love them :)
