It is a tradition with us now. We take friends and family to Sauder’s, then to the Peter Whitmer farm for a picnic and tour, and then to Watkins Glen. Today was Becky’s turn.
We visited at the Whitmer farm with a family from Sandy, Utah. Dad was originally from New Zealand, and mom from Australia. They were fun to visit with.
As we drove through the Village of Watkins Glen, I nearly missed the park. They are doing construction and the entrance doesn’t look the same. Parking was too far from the entrance so Elizabethe didn’t have an enjoyable time. It was also hot today.
Becky and I walked about 1.5 miles into the canyon to see the falls. She kept saying, “Glen is going to be so jealous.”
I must admit, Watkins Glen is a beautiful place. It was also crowded today. Lots of people crammed the trails
Because of the heat, Becky decided to drench her hair in one of the falls. I decided to keep my camera dry, so I passed.
The drive home was uneventful. Everyone was tired. We stopped at the Burger King drive-thru and picked up ICEEs and drove straight home.
