I took advantage of the camp shower and was amazed at the volumes of nice steamy water it afforded.  A nice soak wakes me up like nothing else.  Lynnie, as usual, uses the on-board shower.  

We left, not too early, and sought out the well-hidden dump station.  Then we hit the road.  We stayed on Highway 20 west until it ended.  Then we took seventy seven for quite a while.  Lynnie did most of the navigating and did an excellent job. 

Enroute, I spotted a station selling gas for $3,83 a gallon, so we filled Shorty and were on our way.  Eventually we turned west again when we reached Lake Ontario.  Highway 18 runs right along the shore of this glorious and huge body of water.  The sun was out with large fluffy clouds to add to our pleasure.  Our campground is located within view of the lake.  It's covered with beautiful GREEN grass and trees just getting their full leafage.  Lots of birds, including red/yellow winged blackbirds and several others.

The country we traversed was primarily agricultural in nature.  Corn seems to be the primary crop.  There are numerous dairies along the road and cattle grazing.  It makes me think of home in the olden days.  The other large crop is apples.  Huge expanses of orchards line the roads.  This is some of the original American apple country, long before Washington hit it's stride.

There are numerous vineyards in the area also.  Lynnie wants to check out a few.  All they do for me is bring back memories of bleaker days.  

Lynnie is outside sitting in her collapsible rocker and talking on the phone.  We have adequate Verizon coverage here to enable getting on the internet and visiting with you.  It's pretty much a one-way conversation though.  i guess it must be somewhat like writing a column in a newspaper.  

I took a couple of shots when we stopped for lunch in Darien Center, NY.  The clouds were "awesome" to say the least.  I got one unique shot of their reflection on a dirty puddle in the parking lot.  Turned our very cool, IMHO.

I also received a photo of Billy's BMW motorcycle which I'll upload today.  The phone signal is not so strong, so it takes quite a while to upload a video.  But... I'll give it a try later...

We have laundry chores to do here as well as touristy chores.  I'll keep you posted...
