Saratoga Springs, New York, is synonymous with horses and thoroughbred racing. The Saratoga Race Course is the oldest racetrack and sporting venue in the nation and is home to The Travers, an American Grade I Thoroughbred horse race held every August. First race was in 1864. This year’s purse – $1.25 Million! Saratoga is also home to fabulous fiberglass horses that dot the city’s busy thoroughfares. Over the years many of these painted equines have been bought by local businesses and are on display as public art. I’m sharing space and time with a handsome steed strategically placed on the front lawn of the Marriott Courtyard on Excelsior Avenue.
The Goblin Market – 330 Dora Drawdy Way, Mt. Dora, FL. One of my favorite restaurants…. Beautiful book-lined dining rooms and superb menu. Voted “Best Romantic Restaurant/Central Florida” 2008 – WESH Channel 2 TV.
My grand dogs Ruby and Little Scout in Upstate New York.
Pick Your Poison Cupcake Café – 100 Main Street, Safety Harbor, FL. Voted Best Cupcakes in Tampa Bay 2012. Imagine beer and wine in addition to out of this world delicious cupcakes. This was a must explore invitation and I’m glad I did. The chocolate confection was nirvana for me…. no wine or beer necessary.
