Day One - Cincinnati to Henderson Harbor NY  (686 miles)

We started out on Thursday and planned to ride hard enough to allow some time riding along Lake Ontario.  We rode up I-71, east on I-76 and I-80 over to OH11 which is the just like an interstate.  Up to I-90 and we were quickly through PA and into NY.  We made good enough time that we were able to jump off I-90 at NY414 and into the town of Clyde.  We didn't know it at the time but Clyde sits on the old Erie Canal, and we stopped at a spot on the canal where we watched several runabout boats slip in, and we saw an old modified canal boat cruise on past.  We continued up NY414 and headed east on NY104.  We were close to the lake but didn't really catch a glimpse until we got through Oswego and turned north towards Henderson on NY3.  The road between Pulaski and Henderson was a little inland allowing for only quick glimpses of the lake but it was nice riding.  We pulled into the Aspinwall Motel right around dusk.  The owners were out and about to greet us, and could not have been more hospitable.  We unloaded and headed into Henderson Harbor where there were some nice, quaint little motels and cottages.  We stopped to grab a bite to eat and headed back to the motel.
