Today, Bill and I decided to stay put and check out Sampson State Park. The best way to do that would be by taking our bikes out for a nice ride. Sampson State Park is quite large and has many roads. These roads remain from the days when this park was a basic training facility for the Navy and the Air Force.
The park served as both a U.S. Naval Training Station during World War II and Air Force Training Base during the Korean War. Veterans from both eras have created a museum in the former brig/stockade. We visited the museum and will post about that on another day.
Today, we will just take a ride around the park!!

Visiting museums is not something Bill and I usually do. However, on several occasions, when we told someone we were coming to this area they said, “You have to see the Corning Museum of Glass!” So today, we did just that:o))

The drive was through the beautiful wine country and there was no traffic.
Click HERE to go to the Corning Museum of Glass web site.
It is a large museum which could take a couple days to see in detail. Bill and I spent the better part of the day exploring the displays and watching the different demonstrations. Below is just a small sample of the beautiful glass creations we saw!!
