Morris County

Two friends or ours took us on a lovely trip through Morris County, New Jersey, yesterday. First we stopped at the Frelinghuysen Arboretum, next was lunch at the Publick House in Chester, then after lunch we stopped at Stony Hill farmer’s market. We took a scenic route home to NYC through Morristown NHP.

Bayard Cutting Arboretum

My husband, Marc, and I went to Bayard Cutting Arboretum on Long Island, with two friends yesterday. It was a glorious day for a leisurely stroll and the grounds look lovely at this time of year. In the early evening, we stopped for a fabulous meal at the Jolly Fisherman’s Restaurant in Roslyn on the way back to New York City. It was a lovely day all round, thanks to our friends.

Portsmouth NH

I like to stop at scenic places for lunch, so on the ride back from Maine we stopped at Portsmouth, New Hampshire to eat at a charming little lobster shack, Gino’s Chowder and Sandwich Shop, by the Piscataqua River. After lunch we stopped to look at the Wentworth Lear historic houses.
