Life by Chocolate

Chocolate, white, milk, dark, in all its forms forms life. Chocolate truffles, caramels, and other confections are at the core of enjoyment. This is life by chocolate because death by chocolate is the wrong attitude.

Traveling to the home of the Baseball Hall of Fame

Part 1

Also known as Cooperstown, though we didn't actually get to the baseball hall of fame. We did go to two museums and also to the Fly Creek Cider Mill. Hallelujah! I found the cider I will use in my next hard cider brewing. They freeze and don't use preservatives. And we had a grand tasting at Ommegang and had dinner at Alex and Ika's, very nice.

First, we had lunch at the Fenimore Art Museum, a nice soup. That's about all they had except Starbucks coffee. Both were good though the soup was very good. And then we wandered around the grounds.

The house where the art museum was originally housed belonged to James Fenimore Cooper, the writer of the Last of the Mohicans, starring Hawkeye Pierce, (oops, wrong show) and the other Leather Stocking tales.

Then we went to the Farmer's Museum and had a lot of fun roaming the land

and rode the Carousel, which was even more fun.

I'll take the photos off of my phone next, we forgot our camera and so only had our phones and blog part two. These will be interleaving stories.
