Fingerlakes Weekend - Seneca Lake

Watkins Glen is located at the southern end of Seneca Lake and our hotel was about three miles up on the east side of the lake.  It's a beautiful lake, and in the morning the water is a gorgeous blue color.  There's a ton of wind, and sailboats seems to be really popular.

On our final day there, in the morning, we walked down a terrifying path from our motel to the beachfront.  It was terrifying because we had to basically climb over a bobcat-style digging machine, past poison sumac, and down steep hills that should have had stairs but didn't.  But the water was very pretty.

It was a beautiful morning and the water was so blue it was amazing.

We skipped rocks, drank coffee, and sat on a glider right on the shore.

Then we headed back to our hotel to pack up and leave.  The picture below is the view of our motel from the lake.  The motel is the place at the top of the treeline.

And this was the crazy path we had to walk back up to get there. It was horribly maintained.  Hopefully this will be fixed as part of their "renovations." 

In any case, Seneca Lake was beautiful and you'll see a few more pictures of the lake in the next Watkins Glen post, which is all about the Cardboard Boat Regatta!
