The drive to Lockport was about an hour and a half over and we took a scenic route back along Lake Ontario lasting about 2 hours. The shoreline of Lake Ontario is not rugged and wild like Lake Superior since there are orchards, vineyards, and grazing cattle often on the landward side of the road. It is also pretty level.
We did have one new experience for us. As we were driving through Gasport, crossing bars came down and the lift bridge went up to let a boat go by on the Erie Canal. There is no longer commercial traffic on the canal, but some recreational usage.

Back to normal.
We enjoyed a leisurely drive on a beautiful fall day on Saturday and also going to Batavia for church on Sunday.
