Today I spent the better half of the afternoon exploring Rochester's Lilac Festival. To my dismay I found that the lilacs were not in full bloom and at least to me, were not very attractive. So a bit of an epic fail on the "lilac festival" but who can control the weather? What I was able to enjoy were the tulips and various flowering trees around the park, in addition to my chicken gyro (which was also sub-par). Luckily my mother introduced me to the delectable Red Osier dipped sandwich, a bit heavy but delish!
