A Totally Lazy day



Sun setting over Seneca Lake

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

Not too much to write about today—we were lazy and relaxed! During past vacations, we have tried to zoom around and keep to a pretty hectic schedule with a lot of driving. This year, we are taking it a lot slower—covering far less territory and not feeling terribly pressured to do much of anything. We decided to stay here all day and a second night, and just relax. We put up the RV awning (it was quite warm today, and our campsite was sunny in the morning) and we read our books all day.

In the late afternoon, we took a walk on a path through the woods and down to the lakefront, to see what the rest of the park looks like. It is a VERY big park with lots of open green space. Considering the warm weather, we might have gone swimming, but it was cool in the shade and somehow the day went by very fast. It was nice to feel like we really didn’t have to do anything if we didn’t want to.

Tomorrow, though, we will be leaving here—we have reservations for the next two nights at Letchworth State Park, about 2 hours drive from here according to Google maps. Of course, we will manage to stretch it out a lot longer than that—somehow we always do. But compared to most of our RV trips, two hours between stops is essentially “right next door.”   We will stop and look at the military museum here at Sampson SP before we leave, and keep our eyes open for anything else interesting on our way. Meanwhile, I am looking through the tourist literature I’ve picked up and trying to decide what to do when we leave Letchworth. I have not ruled out finding another pretty state park and stopping again for a couple of days. After all, we have a LOT of books with us!
