My mother wrote on the back of this photo: “Visitor’s Week-end, Oct. 23 – 24, 1965. Maryann in front of the Colonial Motel, Watkins Glen, NY.”
I remember that blue Chevy station wagon with great fondness. It was our first “reliable” car, and it took our family on lots of day-trips and vacations. We always stayed in our home state of New Jersey or New York and Pennsylvania – but they were adventures!
When I looked at this picture I checked online about Watkins Glen, in New York, and I’m happy to say the Colonial Inn and Motel is still in business. It looks like an affordable no-frills type of place. I remember the motel was within walking distance of the beautiful Watkins Glen State Park, and also Seneca Lake.
Cold winter days are the perfect time to start planning trips. Right now I’m planning trips to Colorado and Texas. How about you? Happy Saturday!
