Country Inns & Suites Binoculars Country – The Road Trip Begins
Hubby and I are on our way to Upper New York State’s Finger Lakes. This will be our 17th summer road trip there. Hubby is a big camping fan. Me NOT. Still I do what I have to do for the family.
Everyone will be in the Glen at the end of the week, and I will be a good sport then. BUT for now the next four days and nights are just hubby’s and mine, all ours to enjoy. No dishes, no making beds, no taking out the garbage…just some good R&R before we head out into the big outdoors. I’m really into it this time around.
The Country Inn and Suites by Carlson in Big Flats, New York just provided me some free nights. My time in the hotel is a real last minute vacation for me. I can sleep in a comfortable bed, take a bath in a tub and not go to the public showers, and have telephone service all the time. (Up the mountain, Nextel-Sprint has limited service. Go figure that since they are a NASCAR sponsor.)
“Pie in the sky”, “Manna from heaven”, and “God, what luck!” all come to mind. I am excited. My biggest problem is going to be staying away from the fresh waffles and warm-baked cookies that the guests always enjoy so much. You see I am still on a diet.
I know that I will be busy. The area is beautiful and there is always something going on Race Week. I’ll be twittering and blogging so keep logging in to see what’s up in Binoculars Country. I am trying to be flexible with Corning Museum of Glass, the Ithaca Farmer’s Market, Samuel Clemens’s tombstone, a cruise on Seneca Lake, and Watkins Glen Raceway on the present to do list for now.
I probably won’t be able to get any pictures up today. Since one picture is worth a thousand words, please visit the Country Inns road trip website at http/www.countryinns.com/roadtrip instead. What’s your idea of the best last-minute vacation? I know my answer. It’s this one.
