Work took me on a solo trip this weekend through a beautiful region of New York I’d never visited before – Delaware County & Cooperstown. While spring hasn’t quite graced upstate New York with its presence yet, the countryside I drove through was absolutely gorgeous! I would love to someday come back and make the same drive with Orvis and Michael, perhaps spending a little time hiking in the Catskills. After checking out of the charming inn & restaurant where I stayed on Friday night (more on that this week!), I drove right through Meredith, New York on my way to Cooperstown. I couldn’t help but stop and take a photo of the darling town sign!
Back in Maine, Michael spent most of his weekend working in the yard before heading up to Newcastle to visit Oxbow’s tasting room for the first time with my stepfather – an activity that comes highly recommended from both of them!
I made the long drive home on Saturday night so that I could spend a relaxing Sunday with Michael and Orvis before I head back to New York later this week. After a lazy morning on the couch with breakfast from Scratch, we spent some time outside with Orvis and then made our way to Tiki Sunday at Hunt & Alpine.
I feel like the weekend passed in the blink of an eye, but when I look back, I’m so thankful for how much we both got to see and do.

I had to comment on this post (not that I need an excuse to comment on any of your posts…) because I drove solo from NYC to Cooperstown a few years ago, and it was one of the most beautiful drives I have EVER taken! The rolling hills dotted with cows, the picturesque little towns… just perfect. I still remember it so fondly, clearly!
