A Diversion...

On our way home from Ithaca, NY, we turned off Interstate 81 at Pulaski to visit Selkirk Shores State Park. We had a short hike through the woods...


...and then continued along the shores of Lake Ontario to a pier where folks were fishing for salmon. (Apparently they stock the Salmon River there with a million salmon!!)


A couple of horseback riders took their horses for a wade in the water.


I spotted a Monarch butterfly sunning itself on the sandy shore.


I couldn't quite give him a hug but I gave him a little lift instead.

The beauty that is Pulaski and upstate NY on a beautiful fall day. There are some things I miss other than friends...

I loved your comment about giving the Monarch a lift instead of a hug. There's something special about those butterflies ...the way they summer in the north and then fly back to Mexico for the winter even though they weren't born when they left!
