An Afternoon Drive
Bob and I went for a drive around Chautauqua Lake yesterday afternoon. We made two stops along the way, both stops in Mayville, NY. We stopped along Chautauqua Lake to check on the construction of an ice castle.
The ice castle construction is progressing well. The warmer temperatures the past couple days do not appear to have caused any deterioration of the construction to date. Temperatures are expected to dip again this evening and stay that way for a while, so the ice castle will again be a highlight of this year’s President’s Day Weekend Winter Festival.
Our last stop in Mayville was at Tops Friendly Markets. We stopped to pick up cat food for Patches. We learned that Tops doesn’t carry the brand of cat food that we buy. All was not lost, though. That stop turned into a photo op. While in the parking lot, I noticed a pretty church across the street.
Leaving Tops, we turned right onto Route 430. Soon after leaving Mayville an eagle flew across Route 430, right in front of us! What a pleasant surprise that was! We did turn around to see if we could catch sight of the eagle again (and have an opportunity to take a picture). We had no such luck!
Oh, and I almost forgot. While in Mayville, walking to the ice castle, a snow bike caught our eye.

I hope you’ll get back to see the ice castle once it is completed. Just imagine the trips you could take (and the photos you could get) if you had a snow bike like the one you pictured.
These photos are very cool. I look forward to seeing the ice-castle completed, the church is very pretty, lovely architecture, I have never seen a snow bike before. Sorry you didn’t get your eagle shot but these are great!
The ice castle should be a neat sight to see when it is finished.. Pretty shot of the church, it is beautiful. Cool sighting of the eagle, hope you are having a great day.
Oh Wow—-I’d love to see that Ice Castle when it is completed… Are you going back to see it then???? Hope so…. Beautiful picture of the church in winter.
