We are staying at a beautiful campground right near Corning, NY, Camp Bell Campground, in Campbell, NY. We spent the past 3 days going to the Corning Glass Museum and the Rockwell Museum of Western Art (not Norman Rockwell).
First for the old. These are some videos I took on our visit to Dubai.
Well, Ann found a Carousel and took Evelyn for a ride.
Next is a video of Caroline singing to Evelyn. Sorry, the sound quality is not the best.
When we made our way from Indiana to the Corning, NY area we made a stop in a small town on the Ohio – Pennsylvania boarder by the name of Ashtabula, OH. It is a small town on Lake Erie. The town is a major coal port.
Freighters unload the coal in huge piles. Water cannons mounted on towers spray water into the air to keep the coal dust down.
A conveyor arch brings the coal over the river to be loaded onto waiting coal trains.
We then continued on to Corning, NY. It seems strange to see all of the cars with NY State license plates again.
We spent the next two days touring the Corning Glass Museum. A must see if you are in the area.
There is a gallery that just opened in March of modern glass art, 2000 to present, all light with natural light.
There are galleries dedicated to ancient glass.
The Rockwell Museum was named for a local merchant who lived in Corning and donated his collection of American Western Art. We were not allowed to take pictures.
Next, onward and upward to Up Up state NY. to visit some of the Locks of the Erie Canal system.
