In the blink of an eye our mini vacation is over.  Sigh.  However, it was pretty perfect and I'm completely in love with Skaneateles, NY.  We happened upon this village/town a few years ago on route to Cape Cod.  It was the end of October and we blew into town in the middle of a snow storm.  The weather was so dismal that we really didn't take much time to look around and just wanted to check into our room and grab something to eat.  We did notice that we were someplace quite special though and knew that we would have to return to explore a little more.  Perhaps part of it was the Sherwood Inn (where we stayed this time as well).  It's a pretty old hotel by North American standards- I believe about 200 years old and it's loaded with charm and character.

We spent much of our time eating and walking and gazing out onto the beautiful lake which is the only lake that I've seen that I've actually wanted to swim in as it's clear and I have a fear of ' lake monsters'.   I'm already making plans to return next year to explore some of the Finger Lakes' wineries, to eat more of the amazing donuts from the Skaneateles bakery, and to whine in John's ear about wanting to buy one of those beautiful homes with the big wraparound verandahs.

  1. Ooh! You were in my neighborhood of Central NY. I live in Cazenovia-next lake village to the east. I love the Sherwood Inn and its bakery (in your second photo). They made the delicious cake for my daughter’s wedding. The whole village recreates Dickens’ Christmas Carol in live street characters during the Christmas holiday season. Come back again soon.
    I adore your lush painting, color and narrative subject matter!
