A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE FINGER LAKES

By
Education & Training with Performance Development Strategies

The group of 11 finger lakes in Central Upper New York State is home to some of the great wineries.  This area is has been called the Champaigne District.   Since I was giving a presentation at the Turning Stone Casino on Monday we decided to spend Sunday along Cayuga Lake.  Cayuga and Seneca are the two largest lakes of the Finger Lakes.

 

 This is a great time of year to drive in the Finger Lakes region.  We stopped for wine tasting at a number of wineries and then bought our supply of wine for the rest of the year.

All in all a beautiful day.  Then we returned to the Turning Stone Casino and actually won some money.

I'd love a tour next time I'm in your neighborhood Grant Schneider . I noticed that if you remove the map and keep the lakes it looks like the "Monster" energy drink logo.
