Today’s trek was absolutely my favorite! We set out at 9:15 to another perfect day. Just a few puffy clouds in the otherwise clear blue sky; temperature in the 50s. The conditions were ideal for the “hardest” trek. We were …

Well I didn’t end up going to the restaurant on the water. It was just a little over the top for me. I just didn’t get a charming, this-is-historic-and-oh-so-cool vibe from it. But it was very romantic and very beautiful …
