Farewell Northeast

We are sad to leave our friends in Providence.  Definitely went through withdrawal from their kind hospitality and comfy furnishings as we camped two nights in Ithaca.  Emil has fond memories of his time at Cornell.  Before leaving, we had a lovely dinner at Taughannock Farms Inn.  The meal is all inclusive...appetizer, salad, entree with starch and veggies, and dessert.

Strawberry Soup

Smoked Sausage and Cheese Plate

Roast Turkey

Lemon Chicken

Chocolate Obsession

Vanilla Cheesecake

For our departing breakfast, we dined at State Street Diner.  The hangout for college kids after a night out on the town.  I love diners in the Northeast.  We've eaten at several during our trip, and I appreciate a good cheap breakfast with real butter on wheat toast.

Today, we watched my nephew, Sam, in his testing for his Senior Green belt.  It was really neat to see the Demo Team, as they showed off their skills, particularly jumping over three people to kick through a board.


He did very well, and I'm sure he passed the test.  We will know next week or so.

Tomorrow is a big day.  According to my nephew, Aaron, it's a "mini family reunion."  Family, games, food, and good times.  I'll post some pics tomorrow!
