We're off to spend Mother's Day weekend at 10 Fitch. This is the B&B we visited in Feb as a Christmas gift from our children. This time two of our children and their companions will be joining us. The 6 of us will have the place to ourselves and as a bonus the resident chef (for scrumptious breakfasts), Katie Carter, has agreed to prepare a dinner for us on Saturday night. The Inn's proprietress, Katie Hess mentioned that Katie C. had recently undergone surgery. In spite of this, Katie C. agreed to do us the honor of making dinner and she will have her beau, Sean (a chef from neighboring Skaneateles) assist her. A big thank you to Katie C. and Sean.

Sean, rel, D., Katie C.

We'll drive down this afternoon. It's a 2 1/2 hr drive for us and for Michelle and Josh coming from Albany, and Jacob and Kristi from Buffalo. Now that's convenient! There are no definite plans for any activities. The area offers a multitude of choices, so I'm sure we'll have no trouble entertaining ourselves.

Nearby village of Skaneateles has many unique shops and boutiques as well as fine restaurants to dine in. The lake is one of the fingerlakes and is noted for being the 2nd cleanest lake in the Country! Enjoy swimming, sailing and boating or just enjoying the crystal clear view.

The Library
Curl up next to the fire with a good book or turn your favorite game on TV. Our library is all mahogany, with seating that just doesn't seem to want to let you go. The dark and masculine look of an animal rug and buttery leather chair brings comfort and warmth to this classic library.

I'm certain that we'll be watching the hockey game between the Buffalo Sabres and the Ottawa Senators on Saturday night.

In doing a Google search I find that 10 Fitch has been put on the market as of 25 April, 2007, for $799,000. It's a beautiful place that's been tastefully remodeled.

I'll be back next week!
