We arrived here Friday and have spent most of the past few days with Justin's family. His dad was released from the hospital about a week and a half ago, having finally had surgery after contracting meningitis and another infection while he was in the hospital for the fluid leak. Fortunately he's feeling a lot better now, and friendly people have brought or sent food (a LOT of food) and flowers.

Today Justin and I drove around the Finger Lakes area, stopping at Glenora Wine Cellars for lunch and some wine. We're taking home a bottle each of Bobsled Red, which is kind of sweet, and Seyval Blanc.

The weather was splendid, low eighties and fairly clear. We also went to Taughannock Falls, which Justin says is beautiful any time of the year but is especially nice now with the leaves starting to change.

And, of course, with us here and Whitney on this side of the pond, there was the obligatory family picture. This was possibly the most sedate photography session we've ever had.

This is the silly version.

The falls look gorgeous! I bet it looks spectacular when the leaves are in full autumn color.

The silly family picture is pretty good. Glad Justin's dad is recovering.

Wow, you and Justin must have more hair than everybody else PUT TOGETHER. Funny.

Glad you had such a good trip.

And that's not even counting our body hair!

Was that too much information?
