We went for a short motorcycle ride with our friends, Susan and Dave, on the morning of May 26 (Memorial Day). We met at 8:00 am at a local fuel station and rode to Findley Lake, NY. The purpose of riding to Findley Lake was to see that village’s Main Street Memorial Day parade.
We would have watched the parade in our hometown of Warren, PA; however, Warren doesn’t have a Memorial Day parade.
After the parade, we rode into Jamestown. We stopped at Tim Horton for coffee/iced tea and donuts. We carried our Timmy purchases across the street, to Riverwalk Park. After consuming our purchases, we went for a short walk along Chadakoin River.
Located at the base of this sculpture is a marker that reads: “Before white men came to this area the Indians blazed a trail between Lake Erie and Lake Chautauqua over which they, early explorers and settlers, portaged their canoes. At the Chadakoin River rapids the canoe was portaged again. Here is where the explorers rested and started a settlement which is now the City of Jamestown.”
After our walk in the park, we rode back to Warren. We returned home around 12:30 pm.
