From Montreal, we drove down the Ontario side of the St. Lawrence Seaway, crossing back into the U.S. at the Thousand Islands and then made our way through the Finger Lakes of NY State to Wellsville. I didn’t take a lot of photos; we let ourselves bask in the beauty of the country.
We have been coming to Wellsville for a long time, 40 years or more, so it is like a kind of 2nd home. Winding country roads and little towns. Farmland. Stunning rivers and waterfalls. Local arts.
The Felsen home is lovely and welcoming, as usual. John and I swear that the best shower in the USA can be had in the “dormitory”. It’s like a waterfall. This is Jubilee’s favorite place in the whole world and I miss not having her with us this time. She loves laying in the soft grass at the top of the hill and looking out over the town and surrounding hills.
FA & Joe treated us to some wonderful meals, hikes and hospitality …
… with a special visit to the new Wellsville “Tea House”!
We took a walk along the Genesee River, where the weeds were in their glory. I went a little overboard with my weed photos, but they really were spectacular.

As D. Jones says, we were down the rabbit hole.
