Had To Get Away

TONAWANDA, NY — Listening to Baby Grand, a Sacramento-based indie/twee pop band and chilling at Panera.

Today, I ran 4.17 miles in Lockport. It feels good to keep up with my 10K training on this vacation…especially with all the eating we’re doing.

Bonfire
Last night, we toasted marshmallows at a bonfire and made s’mores.

I could barely handle the heat from the gas-fueled flames. Still, I thought it was all worth it. I loved biting into melted marshmallows on blocks of Hershey chocolate and graham crackers. Then we looked for falling stars while I sipped a bottle of Molson’s Triple X.

I also used my new passport at the Canadian border. We crossed the border with Mark’s best friend/best man, Kaine, and his wife, Missy. We spent a lazy Monday afternoon sampling the wine region in Niagara-by-the-Lake.

Strauss White
Our bartender at the Irish Harp said we had to try the Strauss White if we were red wine fans. She said we’d have a change of a heart and become white wine fans after sampling this bottle. It’s a fine white wine, but I didn’t move mountains for me. Bring on the Pinots and Zins.

Pork BBQ
Home cooking is also a highlight for our vacation. My mother-in-law whipped up this hearty dinner of BBQ pork, peas, coleslaw and macaroni salad. She used a sweet glaze on the meat and I went back for seconds. It paired nicely with the cold pasta and steamed peas. Yummy!

So – s’mores, wine and BBQ. I guess I need to fit in another run this week. Or else, I’m going look like a blimp by the time I get back to Cali.

Share and Enjoy
