The beauty of the Finger Lakes area rivals any other place we’ve been in the United States—sans maybe Telluride, Colorado.
I still miss Okinawa on a regular basis. I have dreams about visiting at least once a week. One thing I liked in Oki is that I didn’t much mind driving for a while to get places because it was so beautiful. I get that same thing here. It’s 25min to the nearest grocery store and a bit longer to go anywhere else, but the drives feel like nothing because they’re through beautiful landscape. Constantly changing because of the seasons.
In Oki I could have my mountains and ocean, but if I had to pick just one, I’d definitely take mountains. They may be small mountains here, but they sure do pack a punch of beauty with their waterfalls and lushness. Really is amazing. I don’t think I will ever grow tired of it either.
Love others. Love self. Love coffee.
