Independence Day Ride

After watching Warren’s Independence Day parade, we rode to Erie and enjoyed our 4th of July meal at Quaker Steak & Lube.

From Quaker Steak & Lube we began our ride back home. We made a couple photo stops along the way. Our first stop was in Findley Lake, NY.

Soon after we had parked, a man and woman rode in on a motorcycle.  We said hello, and I was reminded what a small world we live in. The man and woman are from Butler, PA and know Cadogan, the town that I grew up in.

Our second photo stop was at Long Point State Park on Chautauqua Lake.  This state park is located less than 35 miles from our house, but we had never stepped foot inside the park.  Earlier this year we purchased an Empire Passport, which provides free admission to state parks in the state of New York.  We decided to check out this park.  Long Point State Park is a very nice park! There is a beautiful marina, very nice trails and a beach.

We walked a trail to the point. There were lovely views of the lake all along the trail.

We returned to the marina, walking on the trail on the left.  We enjoyed the lovely views of the lake from this side of the point as well.

We are really getting use out of the Empire Passport.  I am happy that we purchased the passport this year!

    60 years ago, Longpoint was a boaters paradise…. No marina, just a huge bay. I love seeing it from the land! Great travelogue, thanks.
