Back in Ottawa!

12 April 2009 | Echo Drive
Cool and sunny!
So we're back in our home in Ottawa...............
What a wonderful vacation!

The trip north was more relaxing than our mad rush south in December, with a number of excellent hotels and restaurants.

We traveled north from Stuart, across Florida and Georgia, and hoped to stay in Hilton Head, South Carolina. We arrived at 4pm and discovered that the place is completely artificial without any architectural sense, and looks like it was made in Disneyland. We drove on to Beaufort, SC which is a spectacular 18th century seaport where we loved it.

Another day on the road brought us to Hopewell, Virginia, the site of General Grant's headquarters during the Civil War. Wonderful soft-shell crabs ( they're only in season one month a year).

Another day north brought us out of Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and on to Ithaca, NY, the home of the Moosewood Restaurant, the source of the famous Moosewood Cookbooks, and an important venue for Louise. We dined at the holy spot, and had a wonderful room in a nearby B&B. We'll return in the fall for the famous Cayuga Lake Wine Festival.

Another 4 hours brought us to Ottawa with our 500lbs of shells, sea-glass, coral, seeds, wine, cheese, etc.

The trip was a migratory experience with thousands of snowbirds (often in huge RV buses) streaming north towards the spring!

Back home we've had a day to do some shopping at our favorite shops and are delighted with the vast selection and quality!

It's great to be home, and Louise is looking forward to the attack on her garden!
