Greetings from Upstate New York! I’ve had a serious scenery change in the past week — I went from balmy Bermuda (have you been following my Instagram takeover?) to crisp spring Upstate New York. While normally I give myself a little more than eighteen hours turnaround between trips, this one was definitely worth the rush. From kayaking on Keuka Lake to taking a private glass blowing class in Corning, my first trip to the Finger Lakes could not have been more idyllic — and my big sis Margaret came too! How did it take me so long to get here?!
Over the weekend we retreated to Rochester and enjoyed some downtime with one minor exception — my first 10K! It felt so good to cross the finish line, though I’m definitely still walking a little funny as a result of my lack of training. Next week I’ll be checking in with more from my favorite state as I explore Ithaca for the first time and finally return to Albany for an all too brief bit of downtime before hitting the road once again.
Hope you all had a beautiful weekend… and Happy Monday!
