What a magical time we had at Keuka Lake! This truly was enhanced by the loveliness of Steamboat Castle, the amazing B&B we had the good fortune of choosing for our night in this region! The morning starting with an amazing breakfast, creatively served with genuine caring and skill by our hosts Ginny and Jamie! I cannot tell you how hard it was to leave this place! Thank you both!!! And also thanks to the other guests, who continued to exchange moments in time! We felt fortunate to meet each of you! Some of you may see us next year!
On our way out of town we drove through the village of Penn Yan, quaint, historic, enchanting! The wineries, too numerous to keep track of, colors just beginning to change to fall, and then this sweet little shop serving homemade ice cream…pinch me!!!
We eventually tore ourselves away, and onward we went, across the entire state of NY, to eventually land in our sweet little Inn in Manchester VT.
We did make a stop in Utica NY, and tried slices of “upside down” pizza, it was incredible! The sauce on top, and super thin crisp crust…so good!!!
The Coffee shop next door rivaled any PDX roasters…Yes ma’am!!!
And arriving in Vermont, tired, eager to go out to a highly recommended restaurant called “The Perfect Wife” where we ate in the bar which is called “the other woman”, chatted with a very sweet local gal, Marissa, who was eager to engage in just being kind! Thanks for that!
Tomorrow we will weave through the continuous small, quaint towns of Vermont, then a bit through New Hampshire, eventually landing in Portland Maine! Likely another long but intoxicating day ahead!
As always, thanks for enjoying the journey with us! As one of our dearest friends coined last year,
“Life is better when shared with friends”…so true!!!
And so grateful for our new friends we are making along the way! You are making our trip more memorable than you know!!!
