View 418: Summer Weekend in Upstate New York

Summer in Upstate New York took its time to arrive this year. Spring was one of the wettest on record so last weekend’s hot and humid weather was most welcome. My wife and I celebrated by driving over to Sylvan Beach, New York for dinner at Captain John’s before walking the beach and enjoying a summer sunset over Oneida Lake.

The next day we meet up with the Syracuse Shelby Mustang Club for a cruise to the Watkins Glen International race track for pace laps and lunch. After the second of three laps, all of us lined up at the Start/Finish line for photos of our cars on one of the most famous race tracks in the world.

The clouds hid the Sun but it was still warm and a great time with fellow Mustang enthusiasts.

    Summer was slow here too, but we’re definitely into it now.


  2. I need a hi-def copy of that first shot… wow! I’ve only been to Oneida Lake a couple of times and never later in the evening. It’s not Lake Ontario but it’s a great shot.
