Hammondsport, NY. . .former home of Taylor Winery, and now on those grounds is the Finger Lakes Boating Museum. A great way to spend a Sunday morning!
The scope of the museum is far-reaching and includes boat-building seminars, restoration, and history in the 14 acres and 19 buildings on the compound. We were wowed by exquisite works of floatable art, and there are 185 others currently in storage!!
We also peeked at the remnants of Taylor. . .
Who remembers Cold Duck??!! And Catawba Pink!
Shopping, lunch, back home in time to freshen up, and back to Canandaigua and the New York Kitchen for our evening class on Southern cooking!
Chicken and shrimp and puppies (hush), oh my!!
Four teams of two produced the following feast:
Fried chicken, braised spinach, shrimp and cheesy grits, jambalaya, honey corn bread, fried catfish, and hush puppies.
Geez, it doesn’t look great all mushed together on a plate, but honestly, it was all yummy. We came out of there smelling like a bunch of fried food. Which it was.
All too soon our weekend was coming to an end. Monday morning we packed and headed out, Don and me to home, Nancy and Jim to hike Rickett’s Glen, Carol and Steve to visit friends in the area AND return to Dr. Frank’s.
Happy faces, happy memories, good friends, good food, good wine, good times. . .
Life is good. . . or is it FLOXED??!
