After checking our carry bag and purse we entered the fair grounds. For such a sunny day the crowd was easy to walk through.
Our first stop was the sand sculpture. This year's theme was Dr. Seuss.

Trumpet Vine - Blue Mt. Museum
Shane started his truck up at 6AM. We were wondering who was in our front yard at 88 Perrine. Once we became oriented we rest for another hour.
Lindsay, our waitress, was very professional. Diane, the owner, was in the kitchen cooking. Joan had a triple stack of French Toast with sausage. I had a Spinach and Feta omelet with homemade English muffin. Both were delicious and cooked to perfection.
Leaving the Pioneer Cafe asked the two ladies and gentleman in the booth behind us if they were following us. They were at the Pine Tree having dinner last evening. Recall at the Pine Tree they were discussing having spaghetti pie for dinner.
Our return to Camp Michael took 30 minutes.
Walked around Camp Michael. Talked with Joe Thurston and his dog, Lady. He said the Pioneer Cafe for closed for awhile - dispute between the owners, two sisters. Reopened this month.
We took a quick walk into Francis Lake. There were two loons way out on the lake.
They are there along the line between the dark and light water.
Returned to the convenience store near Memories and filled up with gas.
Clear sailing to Adams Center and Rt. 81, but once we reached Oneida Lake the rain was so heavy we had to pull over and wait it out.
Once home the answering machine had three messages from The Woods Inn. Since the telephone was down and the credit card machine was unable, Lily, our waitress, wrote down our credit card numbers but forgot to list the expiration date and code on the back. The Innkeeper phoned again and we settled up.
All in all a great road trip.

On the grounds on Blue Mt. Designs.
Made the mandatory visit to the Blue Mt. Lake beach.
Went to the Coach Light by Michael and Emily’s suggestion but since there was only one car in the parking lot decided to go with the Pine Tree (which had 20+ cars).
At the Pine Tree, Jacklyn was our waitress. She was very efficient.. We had Chicken Parm (my have been the best we ever had here) and I had a cup of Chicken and Rice soup. Evidently the chef sprained his ankle and the owner was cooking this evening.
Returned to Camp Michael. Got the TV working again. Watched the Red Sox game on ESPN. We both read and went to bed early.
Rained hard during the night - free car wash.
