To Buffalo, NY.
Husband's father side is from that area and this weekend is the annual family reunion. We will actually be at a cottage on the shores of Lake Ontario. There used to be a beach, but it's eroded away over the years.
On a good, clear day, we can see the CN tower in Toronto across the lake.
An added bonus this year is the chance to catch up with friends who moved to Buffalo. I went to grad school with R and he's now a professor of sociology at a Buffalo university. Becoming a professor was always his ambition, so while in grad school, he served on department committees, in the sociology club, etc. And now he has his goal.
I on the other hand, would take 2 sociology classes and one art class. One quarter, I signed up for pottery and just fell in love. Fortunately, I've been able to continue taking pottery classes at the county parks and recreation, which is just 3 miles from my house!
But this weekend, it will be about eating, drinking, knitting, crocheting, talking, fishing, and most of all, chilling out.
