I visited the Southern Tier of the Finger Lakes recently on a business trip. My travels took me on a path that I have traveled many many times but never tire of. And on this trip, I see glimpses of Canandaigua Lake, Seneca Lake, and Cayuga Lake. I travel through Geneva, and then head south on route 96 to Ovid, Interlaken, Trumansburg, Jacksonville, Ithaca, Danby, Candor, and Owego. My journey ends near Apalachin which is a little town along the mighty Susquehanna River.
These towns house my friends, the hills and the gentle farm lands are a healing ointment which sooths my soul, and the waters of the Finger Lakes make up most of the blood that runs in my veins. So come with me as I take a little extra time on the way back home to Canandaigua to sample and savor spring in the Finger Lakes:
