Our Daughter's Wedding

They called NAMGAR's GT-39 "A Capital Idea" because, well, it was held in Canada's Capital - Ottawa! Our plan was to meet our fellow Mid-Atlantic MGA Club members in Sacket's Harbor, a small historic NY town close to the Canadian border. Google Maps put it at a 10 hr drive from Long Island (avoiding highways) so we decided to make it a 2 day trip, staying first in Herkimer NY, a town along the Erie/Mohawk canal.

Here's Melon checking out the waterfront on the canal.



From Herkimer we went northwest, driving through a huge field of modern windmills, all along a ridge north of Syracuse, eventually reaching Sacket's Harbor in late afternoon.




The rest of our club members arrived shortly after us, and we all had dinner together at a local brew pub, then went out on the deck to watch sunset.
 


The next day we all took a Ferry to Canada. A very small ferry, but MGAs are also small, so they packed us in!



We spent four great days in Ottawa, taking a riverboat cruise, visiting Parliament, doing a car show, and even watching a "drive-in movie" from the hotel parking lot.




OK, not a very big screen, but the movie, Blue Hawaii, featured Elvis driving an MGA.
