The game plan on Sunday was to head out to the Harvest Festival at Beaver Lake Nature Center.  Half a dozen wrong turns later and we finally found Mudd Lake Road.   Then we saw the people … and more people … and more buses … and the bus line.  We didn’t even get out of the car.  We drove to the back of the parking lot, turned around and headed for Baldwinsville.  Who knew that soooo many people would be descending on Beaver Lake for this event.  The picture below represents our driving experience for the day:

After Saturday’s big bust at the Village of Liverpool’s community garage sale, we were resolved to get out and do some geocaching.  We pulled into the public parking lot at Canal Lock 24 and booted up the GPS units.
