My distractions continue--swimming and triathlon training are a bit off topic from this blog but that's where I've been. But a drive through the Finger Lakes and one of my last days of vacation have brought me back to my senses--meaning the smell, taste, and beautiful sights of our region.
Don't tell my tri coach but I just had a dish of salted caramel ice cream at Cayuga Lake Creamery chased down by a wine tasting at Eleven Lakes Winery--both on route 89. Don't worry, because I'm still in training (taper no less), I took full advantage of the spit bucket.
I hope to post more on Eleven Lakes soon but had to post a little something from the road. I love what they are doing--it was their Cab Franc that we used to wash down the amazing Zach pizza from Niles Country Bistro. We left today with a bottle of their Crooked Lake Red, a semi dry red blend. This one year old winery is one to watch.
