Today I thought I'd take a few minutes to get back into the habit of posting by sharing a remarkable weekend my husband and I spent in and around Ithaca, New York for our niece's wedding. If you've never been to upstate New York, and the Ithaca area in general, you are missing some fine scenery and waterfalls everywhere!
Mike and I stayed in a wonderful Bed and Breakfast called the Rogues Harbor Inn in Lansing, New York. A beautiful old brick mansion that has turned the lower level into a fine dining experience, which includes at least one locally grown food in every dish. We tried the Squash blossoms stuffed with local duck sausage and feta cheese...marvelous! I was really impressed with the local fare supporting local farms and how "Green" this B&B was. They believe in reducing, reusing, and recycling. They definitely walked the talk! Impressive.
|This photo and the previous one show how the third floor ballroom has been turned into a charming breakfast room. Can "charming" be used in a space so large?|

Since we had half of Saturday to ourselves before the wedding, we headed off for some waterfall sightseeing....and the Farmer's Market.
Then it was time for some hiking to the Taghannock Falls. The day offered perfect temperatures and weather for our excursion. When we hiked to the lookout, we ran into some amazing views that weren't even the right falls! Still they were breathtaking.
