a day in the country

in continuing the tales of my recent travels, beth and i took a day off from the city
and decided to rest our tootsies with a drive through the beautiful countryside of
bedford, ny and parts of connecticut. 
it was a sparkling gold wonderland.  the foliage was awesome and the weather was perfect.
unfortunately neither of us knew where martha stewart lives,
or, if we had of known, we would have paid her a visit!

we had lunch at the barn at the bedford post inn. 
i was hoping to catch a glimpse of richard gear.  but no such luck!
however, the food made up for it!

after lunch we continued our lovely drive to the stone barns.
for a while i felt like i was on a farm in ireland. 
check out their website here.
it is a beautiful non-profit working farm used to promote healthy and sustainable food system.

and that pretty much wraps up day three.  there's still more to come in my next post of my last day!
we wondered about the south street seaport, rode the staten island ferry...and other surprises.
let's just say we stepped into my favorite movie of all time:  You've Got Mail!
