Memorial Day weekend was a wonderful weekend indeed. It began with AS and I both getting out of work early. Or did I take a full day off? I can't recall. I think I worked half a day, then packed, then drove down to Federal Donuts for a quick round of chicken (no photographs because I was too busy ripping into the chicken...I think I have an iPhone photo). So we were on the road by 2 PM, is the real point. We hit only the barest of bad traffic, and joined her parents by about 7. It remains a beautiful drive from Philly to Cayuga Lake, about 45 minutes or so north of Ithaca. Their house is on the west side of the lake. Upon our arrival we were offered a creamy tasty cheese.
2009 and 2010, taking a 2011 hiatus, and I must say I'm so glad that I got the opportunity to go back. It's just so pretty and peaceful. You'll see.
