Canandaigua Lady Excursion

IMG_7085Friday provided the perfect weather for our Canandaigua Lady Excursion. It was in the low 80s, the sky was a beautiful blue decorated with little fluffy clouds and there was just the right amount of breeze. (See a just right breeze IMG_7088 - Copy ) Given how wet it has been so far this summer, we were quite lucky.

IMG_7083We started our afternoon off with a little picnic in the park near the landing. I packed a small repast of Spanish cheeses (very tasty, no clue what their name are at the moment), bread, strawberries, tarts and lemon water. I was quite convinced that Jody, Trish and Max’s picnic basket was bottomless. These ladies put together an amazing repast. There were potatoes, cheeses, sausage, chicken, eggs, berries and tarts. Max made this period cheese recipe with mace and port in it. It was incredibly tasty. (I’m hoping she will share where that recipe is.) Jody did a tasty twist on lemonade with mint and lavender. The lavender really set it off. I will be stealing that idea.

Here we all are as we head over to the landing to board. (Devon is behind the camera.

  1. How interesting, and what a small world. I know Jody. We just did a presentation on bloomer dresses at the ALHFAM conference in Williamsburg a couple weeks ago.
