Penn Yan and Keuka Lake
When traveling into Yates County, all roads seem to go by the Edgewood Country Store. (Actually it is on Voak Road.) The offerings include clothing, kitchenware of all types, a bookstore, sewing supplies, and of course, yards and yards of quilting fabric.
We just happened to arrive during the 14th anniversary sale. Although we don't need a lot of incentive, the 10% discount on fabric led to a hearty purchase.
A nice view of Keuka Lake from the overlook outside of Branchport. The temperature in the low 80's seemed summer-like, and there were both power and sail boats visible on the water.
A pretty typical stand of color on the way to the Esperanza Mansion for lunch. We were disappointed with the poor service and left after 30 minutes of being seated at a table and never having a waitress stop by. It is a beautiful spot, and the service there is usually adequate, though never outstanding. The lack of organization and good management practices today were all too evident. We motored on to Canandaigua and had an excellent lunch and service at Koozina's!
