Veteran's Weekend in Ithaca

Isaac and I enjoyed the rainy weekend together in Ithaca. The pictures below chronicle our many excursions.

Here we are at Taughannock Falls, a 215 foot water drop about 20 minutes from Cornell. Although the park appeared to have some good foot trails we had to just stop for the photo op because of a busy schedule.

We spent a lot of time on Saturday driving through Amish country. I stopped at an Amish country market to buy some gifts. I was the only patron at the store. The most interesting thing that I learned? The Amish shop at Wal-Mart. For some reason that idea was surprising to me.

Later on Saturday I went to my first polo game. I was very impressed by the skill involved. After dinner Saturday night at a country restaurant, we decided to get some work done and I took over Isaac's desk.

Isaac and I worked on a sign for a memorial that will be set up in the Arts Quad later this week. We spent a bit of time at Kinkos trying to get it printed.
