Date Night!



For the first time in quite some time, Bruce and I had a relaxing night out, just the two of us! We headed to a restaurant in Ithaca that sits right on Cayuga Lake. It was a lovely, warm summer evening - no rain - the second of two such days in what seem like weeks of endless rain.

We had asked for a table outside, but in the shade. After being assured that we were being seated as per our request, it turned out we were in full sun, and it wasn't going to go away. So - we asked to be seated out of the sun, which put us inside, but it was all good! Being 4th of July Weekend, this place was packed! Fun and good food was to be seen at every turn! With only my cell phone on hand, I tried to capture some of the festive atmosphere! 

My Favorite Date!





We need to do this more often!

Happy 4th of July!

                  Not that I plan to do this any time soon - but I do think it's pretty cool!

"Glass is different things to different people. At the Corning Museum of Glass, you will discover the many things glass can be."


The other day, we made a trip to the Corning Museum of Glass, about an hour and a half away. An amazing place - beauty and education at every turn. We were accompanied by young, visiting family - a wonderful way to explore what the museum has to offer. They even got to try their hands at making something of their own! I would love to return sometime however, on my own - and with my good camera. In the meantime, I think that the shots below give you an idea of what a fascinating place this is to visit!
