Are You Sick of the Blow by Blow?

Last Sunday found us starting the day slowly. We were way, way north in New York - practically in Canada! After finally getting everyone ready, we all piled into Jason's truck and went out to a very yummy breakfast (Chan, I'll be attempting to figure out those pumpkin pancakes for myself). After that we went to a few wineries in Northern New York. The first one was nothing spectacular, but the second one was really good. Or so say the wine drinkers in our group - me - just pass the vodka! Finally, J&J decided to show us Boldt Castle on Heart Island in the Thousand Islands area. Isn't that beautiful? It was never lived in. The story goes that the castle was designed and built by George C. Boldt (millionaire proprietor of the world famous Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City) set out to build a full size rhineland castle as a display of his love for his wife, Louise. Unfortunately, Louise died suddenlty before the castle was complete and George had no desire to neither finish nor live in the castle after her death. But man is it beautiful. Dinner Sunday evening was a glorious spaghetti, green salad and bread. My friend Jess has the best stuff in her house, she is a gracious hostess and a wonderful cook! If you get a chance - go visit her :) Love ya Jess - miss you guys tons! eta: links and correction to names
