the run continued

After a rather too leisurely breakfast we set off on Saturday’s jaunt, a trip north on the scenic NY route 90 alongside Cayuga Lake, and then south along the opposite shore before making our way across to Watkins Glen at the southern end of Seneca Lake. Lunch was taken in Watkins Glen where there is a decent selection of places to eat in the compact village centre. After lunch there was a choice of activities: a drive around the Watkins Glen International race track or the return drive to Hope Lake Lodge. For those not driving the modern track, the afternoon stage began with a drive around the historic road race circuit before leaving Watkins Glen for a drive along the shore of Seneca Lake. There were some excellent views of the lake from NY route 14 over the vineyards. After skirting the urban sprawl at the north end of Seneca Lake we drove back to Virgil through farm land and small settlements on lightly trafficked roads. Once again arriving at our host hotel for the evenings activities.
