1 All present and ready to go including our very special support vehicle. We started in Lewiston, NY.
2 First stop at the Singer Cherry Farm, Appleton, NY.
3 Everyone was anxious to see what a cherry farm had to offer.
4 Lots to see and buy. Amongst the favourites were choclate covered cherries.
5 Garlic scapes are the flower head of hardneck garlic. These ones are about to be roasted in the oven.
6 After the garlic scapes came out of the oven they were offered for all of us to try. They are delicous and many people came back for handfulls of seconds and thirds.
7 Lunch was next at the Black North Lighthouse Restaurant in Kent, NY. It was raining very very hard at this point and all the cars with soft tops were testing the water resistance of their tops. Unfortunately they failed miserably as did the occupants.
8 Lunch was great food and conversation and a respite from the rain.
9 Pit Stop at the D&R Depot Restaurant.
10 Peter gives an explanation of what a "Barn Quilt" is and what lay ahead for us to discover.
11 This is a barn quilt. A single block of quilt that was painted on the side of a barn. There were many as we travelled on our journey. Each one was different.
