Oneida Lake

Found myself two and a half hours northwest today, taking a breather at this locale. They call it the thumb of the Finger Lakes— 20 miles wide and 5 miles across. The water was as clear as what they sell us to drink wrapped in plastic. Probably full of microplastics none the less.

  1. Gorgeous photo, Richard. Crystal clear water to look at but, as you say, probably full of microplastics. They’re everywhere now – they’ve even been found in our bloodstreams. What a scary thought! Nevertheless, this is a beautiful view. A lake that’s 20 miles wide and five miles across is more like an ocean than a lake. I had no idea they could be so big.

  2. Lulu: “Ooh, Oneida Lake? You are right near where Mama and Dada used to live, when they lived in New York!”
    Java Bean: “Really?”
    Lulu: “Well I mean it’s a big lake, so maybe not RIGHT near, but definitely nearer than where we are now …”
