Escape from (Old) York

Enjoying a wild, madcap weekend that was actually just a Thursday night, in honor of our marriage being old enough to buy booze

Our room (Empire Room — all the room names are apple themed) at the Inn. Flowers on the table in the middle are from me; I always order flowers for Deb before we go somewhere for our anniversaries. (all photos by author)
There was a snow storm earlier in the week, but the snow was out of the way and the weather was beautiful by the time we arrived. (For us, anyway. You Florida people would have died. Okay, maybe not Clay, he’s lived through New York City winters, but Dennett? Alright, fine, she’d have the sense not to go north between November and April, good point.)
We have a picnic backpack that can accommodate dining gear for two, plus an insulated carrier for chilled wine. What was once an extravagance is now basic survival gear.
Our carry-out supper: crab cakes, smashed potatoes, and green beans. With Caesar salads, although we ended up being full from the main meal and just stashed the salads in the room fridge.
Breakfast! Crustless meat-lovers quiche, apple-cranberry muffin, and a minced fruit cup. And excellent coffee.

Husband & retiree. Developer, tech writer, & IT geek. I fill what’s empty, empty what’s full, and scratch where it itches. Occasionally do weird & goofy things.
