Mark,
As a longtime subscriber, I am pleased with the excellence of Life in the Finger Lakes. But I think you have outdone yourself with the Fall 2004 issue. Your vision is coming into focus.

I am a lifelong fan of Keuka Lake, having spent summers there for over 30 years. I am also a huge supporter of Finger Lakes wineries, as I believe they now are making some of the best Rieslings, Cab Franc, and Pinot Noir of anywhere in the world. And of course the food – so many wonderful places to dine.

The photos are fantastic – keep them coming.

This summer our daughter had a “Finger Lakes Wedding.” The bride and groom are both Thistle (a type of boat) sailors and race regularly at Seneca Yacht Club. After the wedding at Zion Lutheran Church, they walked under an arch made of spinnaker poles. The poles were decorated in purple and green – the colors of the Thistles and were held up by fellow sailors. This arch is a tradition at sailors’ weddings.

The couple sailed across Seneca Lake to the Seneca Yacht Club where the reception was held. A chicken and rib BBQ was held. The tables were decorated with flowers from the Geneva Farmer’s Market and by the guests’ artwork.
