Three Night Getaway – Day 2: A Day of Relaxation

We are back home, after a three-night getaway. We spent October 23 through October 26 at Airbnb “LaVida Cottage” in the town of Newfane. This blog post is about our second day at the cottage. You may read about our first day at the cottage here.

On the morning of our second day in Newfane we went for a walk through Krull Park to Lake Ontario.  Airbnb “LaVida Cottage” provides easy access to the park.  Directly across the street from the Airbnb is Park Lane.  A short walk on Park Lane takes you to the park.  I walked about 1 1/2 miles, before asking Bob to go get our car at the Airbnb.  My arthritic knee was hurting badly.  I sat outside Olcott Beach Carousel Park, while I awaited Bob’s return.  When Bob picked me up, he said it was another 1/2 mile walk to the Airbnb.

We decided to spend time at “LaVida Cottage” today.

The back yard ends at a cliff that drops to 18 Mile Creek.

Soon after our walk I took my kindle out to the fire pit and read.

Bob joined me and played his ukulele for a short while. 

Bob took this picture of me reading at the fire pit.

We met Michael, our Airbnb host.  He stopped by late morning to repair a pipe in the basement that was leaking.  He was a friendly and engaging person.

We ate leftovers for lunch.

We ate dinner at Gordie Harper’s Bazaar in Newfane.  Gordie’s is a family restaurant but also features individually owned shops featuring unique themes, antiques and collectibles.  We visited only the restaurant.

It was a wonderful day, relaxing at the cottage.

    It is always nice to enjoy the place you are staying at – especially when it is as nice as this one! The back yard looks lovely!
