More Riding

On Sunday, July 5, Bob and I went for a motorcycle ride to the John Luensman Overview Park, located on Thayer Hill Road in Brocton, NY.  The park is located about 45 miles from our house and overlooks Lake Erie.  We had visited the John Luensman Overview Park one time before on June 20th.  It was heavily overcast that day, and we couldn’t see Lake Erie.  We decided then that we would have to make a return trip on a good day.   Unfortunately, on Sunday, when we arrived at the park, we found a hazy view.

We could see Lake Erie, but the view wasn’t as good as it would be on a clear day.  We will have to ride up there another day and try again for a picture perfect view. The John Luensman Overview Park, by the way, reminds me of the Tom Erlandson Overview Park in Frewsburg, NY that we have seen on motorcycle rides with our 2 Scoop CycleTherapy friends.  An Internet search revealed that “many design elements are duplicated here. Or…, perhaps the design elements from here are duplicated there…” From the Luensman Overview Park we rode to the Allegany State Park for lunch at The Park Restaurant.  The Park Restaurant is located in the Administration Building on the second floor.  The restaurant was renovated last year, and we had not eaten there since its renovation. The restaurant has new decor and a new menu.

Bob ordered a steak salad, and I ordered a fish sandwich with fries. We ordered onion rings, as an appetizer. The service and food were great. Bob said he hadn’t tasted a better steak salad. My fish sandwich and fries were excellent.  The sauce that accompanied the onion rings had a kick and was quite good.

We returned home from Allegany State Park around 4:00 pm.
