Summer weekends are precious when they are preceded by a long winter and wet spring. You want to fill them with fun, family and warmth.
I started out my weekend by taking in a Cam-Am Box Lacrosse playoff game between the Rochester Greywolves and the Onondaga Red Hawks at the Onondaga Nation Arena. It was a great game which was tied after the first two periods. The Greywolves took control scoring 4 goals in the first 5 minutes of the third period to post a 12-8 victory in the first game of a best of three playoff series.
Saturday I toured the annual Syracuse Nationals car show with over 7,000 hot rods, muscle and classic cars at the New York State Fairgrounds. It was a very hot and crowded day so I went light with my Nikon D700 and 28-300VR lens. Every color of the rainbow was present in the show cars. A good place for me to build up photos for Karma’s latest Photo Hunt.
Sunday found me back on the shore of Lake Ontario with a family picnic at New York’s Fair Haven State Park. My Brother-in-Law brought up his power boat and younger family members took turns water skiing and tubing. I enjoyed watching them from the boat and photographing their many mishaps and spills. This is another form of recreation you see on the waters of Lake Ontario.
Did you have a good summer weekend?
