Week Thirty-Eight - 14 To Go

Always look forward to reading a new addition to the Bess Crawford mysteries, but was disappointed in this novel. Let’s declare World War I over and allow the mother-son team Charles Todd to have Bess and Sergeant-Major Simon Bradford wed.

Week Thirty-Seven - 15 To Go

The Trial is a novella (novel lite) in the popular Women’s Murder Club series by prolific American author, James Patterson. The fast pace and  the good twist at the end made this a quick enjoyable read.

Mexico Point State Park

On this beautiful Labor Day Joan and I decided to revisit Mexico Point State Park.

There were several families enjoying the park when we arrived. In fact, we had to park in the overflow lot.

The new bath house provided rest rooms which we appreciated after the long drive.

There are numerous carved statues around the grounds.

Carmen Basilio
Goin' Fishin'
Bessie Maude
Mexico Point Inn Waitress c1910
Joseph Brant
Thayendanegea 
Mohawk Chief and Guide

 Also, notable on the grounds is Casey's Cottage.
Ruins of Mexico Point Inn (fireplace).
Leaving the park we drove to The Pleasant Beach Hotel for dinner. Unfortunately it was closed for the holiday.

Another great day to traveling the roads of New York State.

Week Thirty-Six - 16 To Go

James Patterson’s latest Michael Bennett thriller tackles an election theme. Once again Michael Bennett’s character drives the action. Some Patterson faithful might  miss the Bennett family interaction, since only Brian is allowed to come forth in this novel. Also, the excessive gun details can become irksome. Overall this novel is a welcome addition to the Bennett chronicle.
