Thursday we took a ride to Corning NY for a repeat visit to the Corning Glass Museum which is about an 1 1/2 hours away. Part of the drive was down the west shore of Lake Cayuga then through the rolling hills of the Finger Lakes, if you are a wine lover this is the area for you. Both Cayuga and Seneca Lakes have wine trails, seems like there is a different winery every few miles. Our ride home along the east shore of Seneca Lake was also populated with wineries, instead we stopped at a farm stand and picked up some local apples and cheeses.
Corning Glass Museum is a glass lovers paradise, different exhibits chronicle the history of glass making throughout the world, then there is a Tiffany Glass display and another area large glass bead exhibit., there is of course the display of glass art objects. I've posted a few pictures of our favorite displasys. We didn't stay for any of the free demonstrations but did spend a few enjoyable hours wandering the museum, there is also an innovation room that we visited last time but decided to skip this time.
Our ride home took us through Watkins Glenn were we stopped for a quick look at the speedway since we were going by nayway. There were a few groups of cars going around the track, Camaros, Chargers and such afterwards it was time for lunch. We found Rooster Fish Brewery, the picture tells it all and while he didn't care for any enough to buy a growler, he did enjoy sampling all the different beers.
|4oz each all for Dave|
Dave has a few goals for this seven months: find breweries, eat rattlesnake (and get a rattle), wrestle an alligator and ride an ostrich, for those who know Dave know he's just a tad (fill in the blank) so none of these surprise them. We are doing pretty good on the breweries but need to find a different climate for the rest.
