Same Same but Different Pennsyltucky Riders Arrive in Ithaca

We left Niagara and took the very long way to Ithaca, via Naples where we happened on a Grape festival and had to stop to get  some.  As you can see, there was a lot of traffic entering the US and a lot of riders on the road.  It was a beautiful thing riding along the finger lakes but difficult to get a good photo on the move.  Once in Ithaca we settled at the Miller Inn a lovely place with a lovely host.  Furman and I took the cottage room in the back allowing our traveling companion sisters and spouses to be in the house and close to each other.  For our second day in Ithaca we went off on our own to the Corning Museum not much more than an hour away.  It is amazing what can be done with glass, and more  amazing to find most of the stuff in the gift shop was made in, where else, China. Turns out Corning makes TV Screens, car windshields and a few other products, NOT including Pyrex.  On the rebound we went through Watkins Glen and we were back in time for an early seating at the Moosewood Restaurant. By 7, we were having drinks to Celebrate the 19th Anniversary of Howard and Sherri's marital bliss, at Madelines.
