Fall in New York State for Thanksgiving

We took a drive to the U.S.A. to celebrate Thanksgiving (the Canadian one!). The weather was gorgeous and we made it to Prescott/Ogdensburg in less than an hour, eating Tim Hortons donuts and listening to the Red Hot Chili Peppers in the car.

We crossed the border easily (thank you, Canadian passport!) and drove North, following State Highway 37. The shores of the St Lawrence River, nearby Waddington, were quiet but for a few critters, including a curious cat who followed me everywhere. Fall colours were at their peak and the late morning light made the grass and the trees look vibrant.

Waddington felt like a traditional rural American town. Beautiful old houses, little American flags floating in the wind and lots of outdoor activities, including boating and fishing.
