Autumn Walk


Before I start this, I'd like to share a review of the Lanesboro Bakery Shoppe. They gave it a low grade because they didn't get it. Brett Stecher isn't a smiling face at the door. He is an artist who happens to work in food. Give him a vague outline and let him feed you. It's just amazing.
"While the fantastic pastries from our bed & breakfast came from here...when we went to eat there was a grease board with a couple of items on it. There were no menus and they were out of everything on the grease board so they just said, "just tell us what you'd like and we'll figure it out".
Some of the the internet reviewers are assholes who have been so fastfooded they don't recognize real food. Treat Brett with respect and he will fix you food that will make you weak ...and then go to his car and get free beer for you to take home and sample.                                     


It's fall. It's beautiful. A little hazier than yesterday. Lorna and I took a walk from Church Hill, down to the village and back. Enjoy.
View to the SE of the cottage

Marv and Carol's B & B next door

West down the hill

Bud wrapping the leash around Lorna's ankles

In front of Wilfords

The north bluff


Still west, getting steep


The west bluff

View south from Church Hill


Now it's seriously downhill


Pauline's backyard

The wild garden behind the blue hotel that will never open.






Starting back up the hill



1951 Hudson. Looks a little rough, but only has 22,000 miles on it. It's Spud's daily rider. :-) 


Short cut through the neigbor's backyard back to the cottage.

that is a nice picture story, and a great intro to fall. I can sense it coming here in a couple weeks.

Your trees are fully engaged with the frost. Ours are just beginning to turn a leaf or two, here and there, on the swamp maples. What's the story with the Burro Root Beer? Alcoholic or not? Tasty?

That Hornet would buff right up.

Gunnar Berg said...

The root beer? Just a local soft drink. Good stuff.
Large patches on top of the Hudson fenders have no paint to buff up and the interior i almost gone. It's his car, not a hobby. I don't think there is exra cash to rework it.

The Hudson, first winner of the Daytona 500. Nice Hornet. Your beer selection is killing me. I swear to god you live in the Napa Valley of brews.

Cheers,

Mr Hope.

PS: heard from the Rev lately?

Gunnar Berg said...

Nope. The Rev has given up religion in favorite of a killer carbon ride. Which he seems to be riding. Good man.
