Thankfully, it was easy access to pedal, trail walk, read by the lake, and on weekdays, enjoy the sights (albeit from the outside looking in). During the first three weeks, the weather was stunning with a challenging lake wind most days, and the fall colors were a gift. My timing was accidental, but peak perfect, and Cooperstown was really a pleasant surprise. Honestly, its reputation for all things baseball diminishes the history, architecture, art, and natural beauty of this area.
Yet, I left a week early as a mix of rain and snow was in the forecast, as well as the reality of an all-day drive to coastal Maryland. As it turned out, a week in Elizabethtown, PA was a really good idea as work hampered my style, the temps dropped, and it was a rainy November 1st on the road. My guardian angels are surely with me.
I'm now attempting to settle in for 90 days in Ocean City but I can't tell that story before I have eggnog (at least once).
