Finger Lakes Vacation: The Final Day

At 6:36 am on Wednesday (June 1), we left the Airbnb that had been home for the past 7 nights .  We stopped in Waterloo for breakfast at Magee’s Country Diner.   Bob ordered French Toast and bacon.  I ordered scrambled eggs, two chocolate chip pancakes and bacon.  Bob helped me to eat some of my pancakes.  I left behind about 1/4 of one pancake.  

We returned home at 11:30 am.

I took a nap, as soon as we returned home.  I felt tired, and my right knee (all around it) hurt badly.  Rain coming?

After my nap, I was less tired.  My knee still hurt; pain level unchanged.  I unpacked and put away some stuff that we had with us on vacation.  I did this, with many breaks to rest my knee.  I took another nap.  I slept deeply during this nap.  It thundered and rained during my nap, and I didn’t hear anything.  I was pretty well rested from my nap, and the pain in my knee lessened somewhat.

Around 6:00 pm we heard tornado sirens.  As it turned out, there was no tornado warning for Warren County.  The sirens were accidentally set off.  The warning was for Forest County. Nothing like getting your heart pumping, for nothing!

Our vacation is over. We do not have any vacations planned for the near term. We cancelled a 3-night vacation that we had planned for later this month. We planned a return trip to the Raystown Lake in Huntingdon County PA, where we vacationed earlier this year. With gas prices so high, we opted not to make a return trip this year. We aren’t planning another extended vacation, until possibly August. It is unfortunate that we need to consider gas prices for any future vacations, and even for day trips.

    Hi, I’ve enjoyed reading about your latest vacation… We too are having to cut back due to gas prices and food–etc etc etc….. SAD that our country is in such a mess now and we all are paying the price… We have a 4 nighter coming up next week in NC (Pisgah Inn) to celebrate our anniversary. Then we have a trip scheduled in August for my birthday and one scheduled in Dec to the beach… Probably won’t go anywhere much else this year…. I remember when we used to travel somewhere every month…. Thanks for sharing beautiful Finger Lakes.

    Hugs,
    Betsy

    Pain makes us tired. I hope your knee feels better soon. We are cognizant about gas prices, too. I am less apt to suggest a day trip. And we are trying to eat at home all we can before we head out later this summer for our travel trailer trips. You have had some nice trips!
