U.S. South Shore - Sodus Bay (Day 8)

Hung around to explore Sodus Bay Point.

Went to the Sodus Bay Lighthouse Museum, a spot lovingly tended by volunteers. The grounds had traditional plantings and were meticulously maintained. The lighthouse itself was restored and there were a few diaramas that told the story of what life was like in the early 1900's. The bathing costumes, first class train travel, and what it was like to harvest winter ice for use throughout the hot summer months. Sundays there are free concerts, but we won't be able to stick around to enjoy the next show. Although we do hope to return to the lighthouse to take in the sunset tonight.

Rob and I biked around to take in the sights - homes, beach, pier, chimney bluffs, racing sailboats. Every time I put my camera away it seemed I had to pull it out again to take another shot.

Tonight we are barbecuing steak for dinner and doing laundry.

I had no idea there were places like this just across the lake!
