Both businesses had been around since my dad's time but there's an area called Collegetown that's right outside the university, he said he didn't get much further out into town than that.

Warmest thanks to my wonderful hosts for the weekend, who didn't just give me a place to sleep, but totally played tour guide for this first-time visitor to their lovely area (and even let me borrow an iphone to take pictures since I found myself cameraless after unfortunately failing to properly secure the Optio prior to rolling in Cayuga Lake). What a nice part of the world, what nice people, and what a great event Women Swimmin' is. So glad my friend Louise, who was in charge of the event's Kayak Safety Team, invited me, and that I was able to go. I had a blast.
