New York State - FOUR

  The Stone Windmill - Circa 1825 Built by Hugh McConnell, miller from Scotia. Through the 1800's the structure served as a local jail & in WWII as an air warning post. After the war it served briefly as an American Legion Club House. The land was donated to the village by Charles Chapman in 1943 & 1947 was named Chapman Park.   (2 photos above) top view is out looking at the water from the lighthouse. Verona Beach Light House Association Inc. while we were there, a man working, so that makes you happy to see folks keep the towns looking so pretty, now we were there right before Memorial Day, so maybe they were really beautifying the area??!

We just happened to notice it sitting back in the forest here, it could use some work, but still good bones, fun right??! route 5 - Port Ontario, NY - train

New York State - TWO

  Fair Haven Beach State Park, Cayuga County, NY This gorgeous waterfront state park (have I ever told ya that my best half loves "waterfront", no matter where we stay he is always looking for the best water view, and when we get there and the waterfront is hidden by trees he is heartbroken, i just figure we can walk to the view, oh well, i guess it is all in what you love/like.) but they don't offer "electricity" on that section of camping so that is not gonna to work for us being that we were there for over a week, when you have items that need electricity that is a must. Boy was it amazing ...I bet the sunset/sunrises would be awesome breathtaking!!!! (4 photos above, the bridge is going across to the home and mill, it is a working mill and that's awesome to see that it is still plugging along, and the across the water view, my favorite, it is just breathtaking, I wish kids (or others who don't appreciate it would see this view and just understand how
