We arrived here on Friday night. This is the Village Inn, located right in the center of town. Once we checked in, we realized we had the entire inn to ourselves (at least for Friday night), which was a nice surprise. The room was beautiful and decorated in the French Country style. It had a huge king size bed, a fireplace, and a wonderful and huge whirlpool bathtub, in which I took several long (lukewarm) soaks over the weekend.
As it was nearing dinner time, we ventured out to find a place to eat. We made reservations at a lakeside restaurant called The Bluewater Grill, and then we walked out onto the pier beside it.
Stand back! That Beastie belly bites.
Skaneateles lake is surrounded by these beautiful waterfront homes, which we later learned are worth millions of dollars. If any of ya'll are looking to buy, here are a few.
The lake is incredibly clear and unpolluted, very unlike the Great Lake in the city where I live. I'm not sure what Lake Ontario is like in Canada (Ramona?) but where I live it is a cesspool of filth, to put it mildly. But you could see to the bottom of Skaneateles Lake!
We ate dinner, and for dessert I had key lime cheesecake, my absolute most favorite dessert in the world. Rich had creamsicle cheesecake, which was also very delicious. I should know, because I had some of both.
We went back to the inn (after a quick stop at a candy store) and Rich watched the Sabres playoff hockey game, while I ate this. It was yummy.
And on Sunday, we got up, ate breakfast, strolled around town a little more, and headed back home. Babymoon over. Back to reality. I hope we'll take more trips like these once the baby is born. Getaways like this have become as much a part of our relationship as our shameful addiction to reality tv, and it really feels good to spend time alone with your partner in a place where the distractions of everyday life aren't getting in the way.
Tomorrow, I'll tell you about Toot and Puddle. Intrigued, aren't you?
