Wow,what a terrific visit log! Really. The images are well-shot and perfectly composed to illustrate the text. Geez Euan and Kate, I think ya done rung the bell this summer. Now Mike is going to start charging more for visits!

Thanks for this. My turn is coming up soon. Can't wait now 😊

Really nice article, thank you, Euan. All the more reason to get up to the Finger Lakes region to visit Mike and TOP World Headquarters.

BTW, Watkins Glen International Raceway was once one of the most preeminent road racing courses in the entire country and home for a long time to the United States Grand Prix. Many famous racing drivers have raced there, including Jim Clark, Dan Gurney, Bruce McLaren, etc.

I'll be gosh-darned.

While the writeup of the area is great, the picture of you, Mike and the dogs is what makes this post special!

A lovely review! It appears that there are many "Fat man's "xxx"", as one of my favourite walks in the UK's Lake District (my vote for the most beautiful place in the UK) is "Fat Man's Agony", https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2013/nov/17/great-langdale-lake-district-walkers-tight-spot

Anyone interested in Saratoga Springs, or Ian Fleming's James Bond, and hasn't done so, should read Diamonds are Forever...

A Great Article with a good photography.


Sounds like you had a good trip! I grew up in the area (Rochester), and took my daughter and boyfriend to visit for a few days. Stayed with my sister and husband in Avon; we did a trip down Conesus lake to Letchworth and did some hiking around the area. This area is beautiful; we would have headed to Dansville and Stony Brook except I was concerned all the rain would have made the water yucky to play in. My only disappointment is that we were just there for a few days and I didn't have time to go and harass Mike...

By the way, Lawrence Beck did some beatiful B&W photos of Watkins Glen.

And then there's Troy, NY, where I went to College.

One of the more unusual places. World class symphony hall at the Troy Savings Bank - There's a strange tale.

Seriously, if you live in that area you really need to see a show at the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall.

I saw Dave Brubeck there in 1982 - and many others, I had an apartment on the same block. It's one of the 2 or 3 best halls for acoustic music in the world. It's an unknown jewel, but well known to musicians and acousticians.


In weird Troy.
