Our Trip to (Way, Way, Way) Upstate New York

So my Humans and I went on a trip to (Way, Way, Way) Upstate New York.  In fact, it was practically Canada.  I guess Boy has some Family there and he and Girl were going to a wedding. Unfortunately, I do not fit in The Small Purse, so I couldn't go to the wedding. But I did go on the trip! 

If you tell people you are going to Upstate New York, they think you mean Rochester.  Now I have nothing against Rochester, but if you look at a map, it's pretty clearly in the middle of the state.  I am just a little bunny, but even I can see that.  In any case, we were going WAY north of Rochester.

I am reading the safety card on one of our many, many planes.
This was a long trip.
We had to take a car to the airport;
And then one red-eye plane (I wish it was a pink-eye, but there are uncomfortable conjunctivitis associations there)
And then another plane;
And then get into another car;
And then drive for three hours;
Before we arrived at our destination.

And our luggage did not make the connection so it was not with us, sadly.  It had many adventures and joined us later. Too bad the luggage does not have its own blog.

Clearly I was not in charge of the luggage. It so would have been there if I was.
We saw people, places and things on our trip. In order to describe them, I'll need to unpack some adjectives:

*(Girl would like to note that this is NOT referring to her. I mean "growing vigorously especially with luxuriant foliage")

We did meet a fireman and his dog:


And we found this lovely area with a gazebo, a castle and a river:

What time does the band come and play "Beautiful Dreamer?"

And I met a Knight!

Then it was time to go back home.

Pilot Pinky here!

 It was a short but exhausting trip.


  1. Looks like you had an exciting trip despite the mishaps. Upstate NY is very beautiful. Mom's been to upstate NY and laughed at your descriptions of it being buggy & muggy. She said that it's very accurate.

  2. Wow - what an exciting time you had! Hope that knight was dragon friendly or Eldritch will be upset.

  3. I am so glad you read the security card Pinky, Henry is too I think. Looks like you had a great trip *hugs*

  4. Yikes! Where did you go. New York is so big that you could end up lost in the Canadian wilderness. Parts of it are very pretty although really remote. I like your descriptions of upstate new york, you are right on!
