Day Nineteen

2013 May 13 SenecaFalls NY-NFallsCan 013A quick breakfast at the hotel and we were on the road.  Keeping us entertained along the way is Robert Ludlum’s Scorpio Illusion on audio, read by none other than Robert Lansing.  Needless to say, it is a fun addition to the landscape and the beautiful views

Our first stop was Seneca Falls where there is a National Park dedicated to the Woman’s Suffrage Movement.  The information was superbly displayed and the film tugged at my emotions!  There are still so many ways that women are not yet fully equal in our society even in the Twenty-First Century.

Walking back to the hotel we both remarked how fortunate we are to have this time; to be in this place; and to have each other!  All grace!
