Thanks for the tip on the Antique Revival Store in Big Flats. It is a great store and the people who work there are very friendly and not pushy. I like to shop at local places.

Kayak, Canoes and Kudos
I just finished reading your Fall 2009 issue of Life in the Finger Lakes from cover to cover. Michael Venturino’s photo essay “Canoes and Kayaks on Canadice Lake” was spectacular. A kayaker myself, I thoroughly enjoyed the photography and envisioned myself paddling on Canadice Lake, a paddle I will have to do in the near future. Thank you Michael, this was awesome.

Imagine my surprise when two friends mentioned they saw me in Life in the Finger Lakes! I had already seen a copy at my doctor’s office and did not pay much attention other than reading the article about canoes and kayaks on Canadice Lake. We did not know that we were being photographed. We are the photograph with the kayaks paddling upwind as a storm is approaching, with the green trees in the background.

Having retired to Keuka Lake, we are receiving your magazine and enjoying it. We also have bookmarked your on-line calendar to check on local events – very helpful.
We have gone out to dinner twice recently at the Union Block Italian Bistro, a new small restaurant across from the green in Hammondsport. We found it to be very busy (we had to wait at the downstairs bar both times before being seated) and the food was very good. Your magazine might want to check it out!
