This afternoon we drove about 30 minutes to Silver Lake, one of the "little" Finger Lakes in Western New York. Dave spent a good deal of his youth at his uncle's cottage there so we took a ride along its shores to see how it has changed. The answer is - not much! The lake is small and the cottages surrounding it are mostly small and old. Some have been lovingly maintained and some have not.

On the east side of the lake is a great restaurant and drive in movie theater. The Charcoal Corral has everything a family could want for a fun summer outing. A hot dog/hamburger restaurant with home made root beer, a pretty decent pizza shop and an old fashioned ice cream parlor serving my personal favorite ice cream - Perry's. Next to the restaurant is an extensive miniature golf course, and behind it is a twin screen, first run drive in movie.
Thursday night is "Cruise Night" at the Charcoal Corral, so after we ate our delicious, albeit sinful, dinner we walked around among the local hot rods. It wasn't much of a show, but considering this is a very small town and it was very cold and windy, not a bad turn out. Everyone was proud of their entry.
|This one, however, was something very special.|
1962 completely original fuel injected corvette - Dave guessed it is worth 6 figures...
|We spent many hours at drive ins in our youth (no comments please), but we didn't stay to see tonight's feature, "Planes". Maybe next week.|
Do not use full strength Dawn dishwashing liquid to spot clean a wood table.
I did and it completely lifted the finish off the area,,,nice. Not a good look for my kitchen table.
