Saturday, August 25, 2012

This morning, I spent a lot of time on yesterday’s blog, updated the Escapade’s Row Game, and checked out some genealogy web sites.  Marilyn did wash, and took some mackerel fillets to Tom & Elaine.

After lunch, we drove to Fisher’s Landing, between Clayton, NY and Alexandria Bay.  Part of the reason we went out in the Jeep was for its air conditioning.  Temperatures have been in the mid to upper 80’s here in NY, just like the rest of the country.  However, this park only has 30 amp service, and they want an additional $4 per day for air conditioning.  It is one that we call one appliance at a time parks, because the voltage drops considerably from 110 as soon as you start the toaster, coffee pot, etc.,  So, we are doing what we did as kids pre-a/c, we turned on a fan.  It is still hot, but moving air feels cooler.

We had trouble finding the Rock Island Lighthouse at Fisher’s Landing, so we drove to the Visitor Center next to the Thousand Island Bridge.  They gave us directions, and told us the bridge toll was only $2.50.  We drove back to Fisher’s Landing and found Rock Island Lighthouse hiding between trees between houses.  It was obscured enough that I did not try to get a distant picture.

When we left Fisher’s Landing, we drove to Cape Vincent, which is south of Clayton, NY.  At Cape Vincent, we drove out to Tibbet’s Point, which is where the Eastern Shore of Lake Ontario ends, and the St Lawrence River starts.  Here, we could see the Tibbet’s Point Lighthouse, with binoculars we could see Charity Shoal and Pigeon Island Lighthouses, and the Wolf Island windmill farm.  DSC05513DSC05515DSC05517

Another good day.  Type at you later.
