Bemus Point-Day get away

Labor Day weekend, each year we have our annual family and friend picnic at Bemus Point on Chautauqua Lake.  The weather was beautiful, warm and the trees provided the right amount of shade.  We grew up boating on this lake and it is a beautiful place for a summer vacation.

There's always plenty of food, of course.

Playground for the kids and yes I sat on the swing for a few back and forths too.

When I was growing up there was no bridge here, you either drove around the lake or....

took the ferry, besides cars, walkers and bikers and cross now days for only a donation.

Used to water ski in this cove, my Dad was the best driver.

Ferry in operation since 1811!

I'd like one of these, nice party boat for the family.

On the left is the deck to the "Casino" a restaurant on the water, pull your boat up and dock and go in for some wings and a beer.

The "Summer Wind" a tour boat.

This is a famous spot people like to sit on the colored rockers on the porch with a drink and watch the boats go by.

When I was a teenager, there was a lot of dancing at this bar/restaurant.  Someone made the really cool sand sculture for the weekend.

Horse and carriage rides going on...background are the new condos they built over look Bemus bay.

The west setting sun is always georgous usually reflecting in the water, the perfect ending to a lovely day.
Praise God for a lovely, wonderful day yesterday.  Hugs, Michelle
