I don’t know what it is. Maybe the view.

Maybe the circle. Yeah, it’s probably the circle. Sorry, I don’t have a photo of  “the circle”. This is a photo from the circle. You’ll have to stop there and check it out.

Anyway, whatever the reason, my kids love to stop at the Canandaigua City Pier. Every time we stop, I think – I should post something about this. But what? It’s just so nice to sit for a moment and feel like you’re in the middle of Canandaigua Lake. There’s boats buzzing in and out from your left and right, and there’s people fishing. The waves are right there in front of you, and it almost feels like you’re out there. Aaaah.

Next time you’re in Canandaigua, just take a quick detour down past the NY Wine & Culinary Center and Seager Marine, go around the circle once, maybe twice if your kids beg you to. Take a break. You deserve it.
