Day 4.098: Fifteen rolls on the Erie canal

I joked before we left that the first leg of our trip (yesterday) would take us along the Erie canal "from Albany to Buffalo", but I had no idea that we would end up having a rather chilly (but mercifully dry) picnic lunch (including bread rolls) in the old canal's path right next to a preserved section.

Our post-lunch stop was at the Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge.  Although the weather was far from ideal, we saw lots of interesting birds and the 15 mph wildlife drive was a welcome change of pace from the Thruway.

From there we drove on to Buffalo, where we had a great meal at P.F. Changs.  Our previous family experience there was far from great (we felt like we were cramping their young/cool vibe) but this experience (with two ordering from the gluten-free menu and three from the kids menu) was a success all around.

And I'll tell you about today tomorrow by which time it too will be yesterday.
