Our 4th of July was spent in Oswego, Ny where my mother was born and currently resides. This all-American town is heavy with history, gorgeous victorians, lighthouses and a front row view of Lake Ontario. We had the best time watching sunsets on the lake, chowing down fresh seafood, cheering Mom on in the parade, and viewing fireworks upon her rooftop!!!

Leisurely time at the Park

Waiting for the parade to start!

Rudy's, a local favorite nestled on Lake Ontario where skipping rocks on the lake while feasting on fresh steamed clams and tuna steak sandwiches (my two faves!) is a must-do while in Oswego.

Finding the perfect rock to launch into the Great lake!

Just breathtaking views

Enjoying the symphony concert on the lawn


Gorgeous Lake Ontario sunset

We even had time for some real-estalking!!! I'd happily move in one of the above victorians-check out those moldings...they just don't mak'em like that anymore!
