This post is slightly delayed as I’ve been busy, but I wanted to do a quick post about our recent trip to Morgantown, West Virginia earlier this month! It was a (very) quick trip, but a nice little drive to see family and always neat to check another state off my list. All in all, I feel like we packed a lot into a short time!
A few weeks ago, my husband and I enjoyed a weekend getaway on Cayuga Lake, in Aurora, NY. Even though it was a short trip, it was so nice to get away, see some new things (and see again, some old things) and just enjoy the time together.
When we got married last July, we received a gift card to the Inns of Aurora as a wedding present. Their properties get booked fast, especially on weekends in the summer. Luckily, I managed to snag a night the first weekend of April that was open! This would be my first time back in Aurora since 2013 (when I also went to Cayuga Lake, and stayed at the E.B. Morgan House), and it was so nice to return, albeit with my life in quite a different state.
With nothing but time, we decided to take the long way to Aurora – no highways whatsoever. After a lunch stop at Tom Wahl’s in Avon, we went for the mini-Finger Lakes tour. (One of my goals is to see every Finger Lake, and I’m nearly there after this trip!) My husband has really never experienced the Finger Lakes, aside from a quick stop at Conesus a few years ago, so this was a nice treat for both of us. We stopped at Hemlock Lake, whose shoreline is mostly undeveloped. We found a “park” at the north edge of the lake – very simple, very peaceful. You just walk up some stairs to the crest of this hill, and there’s the lake, in all its untouched beauty.
Alright, so I’m a bit behind with this post but I wanted to do a quick write-up of our (my husband and I) trip to Syracuse a bit ago! On a snowy Saturday afternoon, we did the just-over-two-hour drive across the state to Syracuse! I’ve been through the city before (mostly passing by on car or via bus) but never been through, so this was a nice change of pace without going too, too far from home.
On our way out, we stopped at the Montezuma Winery in Seneca Falls, New York. I hadn’t been in about three years but wanted to make a quick pit stop. Great place for some last-minute Christmas gifts (I picked up some wine, a few glasses and other assorted decor). I love quaint little places like this. Sadly, the winery dog that was there last time I went was nowhere to be found. (I really, really love dogs, okay?)
A few weeks ago, my husband and I took a weekend trip down to Cleveland! It was a solid weekend filled with good food and lots of good music — and a little bit of shopping, too.
Day seven of our honeymoon saw us begin our trek homeward, while we finally arrived back in Buffalo on the eighth day. This part of the trip saw me enter two new states: Rhode Island and Connecticut!
