“You wouldn't worry so much about what others think of you if you realized how seldom they do.” -Eleanor Roosevelt
I've done quite a few blogs in June so I don't have a lot of new things to add to this post. Although we did make a few side trips around the area on nice days. Our favorite place to relax and enjoy a pretty day is at Sheldrake Point Winery, so on June 1 we took a picnic and celebrated the start to what looks to be a wonderful summer on the lake.
Since it was such a beautiful day we also went to dinner at The Boatyard Grill. It's our favorite because the food is good, the view is great and we can get there on our little boat. It's very relaxing.
One weekend I rode my bike down to the Commons to check out the Ithaca Festival. The festival is Ithaca's celebration of summer with lots of music, crafts and food, but the best thing to do there is people watching.
On another pretty day we drove over to Watkins Glen. It's a cute little town that sits at the southern end of Seneca Lake. We've been there or through there many times, but we've never taken the time to wander the streets and poke around in the shops. So that's exactly what we did and then we enjoyed lunch overlooking the marina at Horseheads Brewing. While we were on Seneca Lake we visited a few new wineries before heading back to Ithaca. I will share more info about them in a future blog about the wineries we visit this season. But I will tell you we visited Hillick & Hobbs Estate and Silver Springs Winery.
