I am being relocated to Arkansas soon for my job, and LESLIELENORE came to visit for the weekend to say "goodbye" and help me get ready for the move.
The cats are always interested in helping with packing.
We did manage to have some fun too, though. Normally when we get together we kayak, but it was a bit cold so we stayed on land this time.
We walked the Ludovico Sculpture Trail in Seneca Falls:
In the past we've paddled by that same sculpture, so it was interesting to see it from a different angle:
We visited a friend's organic farm and got a tour followed by a late lunch with delicious fresh asparagus plus crackers, cheese, salami, and salmon that we brought, and some amazing wine contributed by a friend who is a distributor.
We went English Country Dancing twice, once in Syracuse and once in Rochester:
The pace is more stately than in contra dancing, but it takes a lot more concentration to remember the figures. This was the first time LESLIELENORE had done this kind of dancing, and she was very good at it!
And on the last day we visited Lower Falls in Rochester to see the rain-swollen Genesee River pouring over the lip and coursing toward Lake Ontario:
I'm sad to be leaving NY, but glad that I got a chance to say "goodbye." It looks like I'll see her again briefly when my bf and I drive to my new home, past where she lives in western NY.
I hope I'll have a chance to kayak again with her and her brother someday.
