Fall Foliage, Day 20 - Willoughby, Ohio, to Youngstown, New York

We took a lazy start to the morning today, doing a little maintenance on the RV (filling tires) and on dbinbox (a critical piece of the database server crashed without warning).

Then it was off to Niagara Falls! Or at least, the Four Mile Creek State Campground 15 minutes away from the falls where we’ll be spending the next couple of days.

The drive was uneventful but still beautiful - the colors are starting to change in the trees we drive by with actual red and orange leaves (not just brown). I was also proud of myself for figuring out how to get Christian’s iPhone to read to him from iBooks (using VoiceOver), including turning the pages. Not a replacement for audiobooks by any means, but it worked in a pinch for saving data instead of more podcast-downloading.

Upon arrival at the campground, we found a spot that we liked (relatively isolated, with electricity, relatively level) and began the parking dance. After learning from our mistakes at the first campground of this trip, we drove the car off the dolly out on the road so it was properly aligned, then took off the dolly, then backed in the RV so the electric was on the correct side.

We’re maybe about 50 feet from Lake Ontario and there’s a gorgeous little clearing behind us.

For dinner we cooked up the ravioli we picked up back in Cleveland’s West Side Market and ate it with olive oil/salt/browned ground beef we bought in St. Louis. No pictures, sorry - it didn’t last long enough for that!

Some more work time, our new evening routine (less TV, more tea and stretching), then bed time so we could get to the Falls tomorrow with plenty of time to sightsee.
