Canandaigua Lake (NY)

Now that I'm fully vaccinated, I feel safe to hit the road again. I'm continuing my quest to visit all Finger Lakes in upstate New York. So far, I've seen four of them: Seneca Lake (three times), Cayuga Lake, Keuka Lake and Skaneateles Lake. The hardest part is figuring out how to pronounce their Indian names.

Next week I'm riding up to my fifth Finger Lake -- Canandaigua Lake. The water there is super-clean and used for drinking. There's a chic town on the lake filled with attractions (e.g., State park with gardens and 1885 mansion; horse carriage museum; local brewery). On the way back, I'll stop in Corning and finally see the fabled Corning Museum of Glass. I've gone to Corning four times but never had time to visit the museum. Now I will.

Hope your week is fun!


  1. Ooo that sounds like a fantastic trip! Take lots of pics and share with us.

  2. I hope you're having fun getting back on the road :)

  3. Sounds absolutely blissful, Ally! xxx

  4. It must be awesome to be out driving, either on your bike or your fabulous car!

  5. Congrats on being fully vaccinated.

  6. Enjoy!!
    My brother-in-law lives in Ithaca so when we went to visit him last time (before the pandemic), we went to some Finger Lake wineries and it was absolutely BEAUTIFUL!

    1. Yes, it's a lovely area. And full of wineries and breweries to enjoy. My favorite was a delightful little place (Keuka Brewing Co.) where I had a scrumptious stout at an outdoor table.

  7. It's awesome that you're fully vaccinated now, Ally. Falling into the youngest group that was eligible for their shots here in BC (those under 40), I finally received my email invite to book my vaccine appointment in late May. I did so instantly and received my inaugural jab this Wednesday. I was told that in about 6 to 8 weeks another email (or text) would inform me of when I can book shot number two, after which I'll be able to join your ranks as a fully vaccinated individual. A date that cannot come soon enough in my books - just as I know many others feel as well.

    Here's to the prospect of a brighter, safer future for us all the many exciting adventures it will hopefully hold in store.
