Glimmering again in New York
|Warning: opera fans crossing the road|
|Glimmerglass doing what it does best|
Paula, our pilot on the tour boat Glimmerglass Queen, told us this is because the water is still and resembles a mirror every morning. On the lake she took us past Kingfisher Tower, a folly built by Edward Clark who made his fortune in Singer sewing machines.

Breakfast today was a delicious egg and sausage bagel at Danny's Market, an excellent spot for sandwiches and breakfasts on main street. (They've stopped selling beer but you can buy them in the pharmacy next door) You can get your medication and your beer at the same time, smiles the waitress. All around town were SUVs with baseball team names scrawled on the windows. This is mecca for baseball fans and lots of kids come to play at Doubleday Field.
