Concours D'elegance, Clayton NY Boat Museum - Part 1

We were recently invited to participate in the 'Concours D'elegance', being hosted at
in Clayton New York.  

Given that we were bringing a 1957 MGA, 
we decided to come the day before.

Our favourite restaurant  Bella's, has a charming balcony overlooking breathtaking views of The St. Lawrence river, 
so it was a must for dinner.
It's menu is well thought out, with perfectly executed dishes that show off the chef's creatvity.

It was a perfect evening to enjoy the warm sunset and watch the boats glide over the shimmering water.
This year's car show was highlighting British cars, however many different kinds were in attendance.

This one caught everyone's eye!

But, my personal favourites were the Mercedes gullwings!
A bonus to the event was being able to visit the museum and take a trip back in time with the antique boats

I even was invited to take a ride in one! 

The event had many dignitaries, some who even stopped for a pose!
Stay tuned for part 2 - a vist to La Duchesse, the houseboat owed by George C. Boldt.
