Checking Off Another State

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

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!

Returning to Cayuga Lake

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.

The Honeymooners: Day 3

The third day of our honeymoon saw us check off yet another state: Massachusetts, as we set off there several times – and then back into New Hampshire – throughout the day. We had some fun along the coast but also got to enjoy a concert in Boston!
