Here are a few pictures we took along the way:
But of course, everything smelled of pine. Not the toilet bowl cleaner pine, the true pine tree scent!
We loved the lake, the hiking, shopping and food. Their city center was full of antique stores, coffee shops and little boutiques.
I found a local boutique where I sat and talked with the owner for quite some time. She told us of all the places to go. And go we did.
I had my first lamb burger. It was so delish. Then we had the best pizza with the best crust ever at Capone's. We sampled Huckleberry Wine at the wine store. Then of course, had to try the local brewery. Umm...yumm... But best of all for me was Java. They had a 'Bowl of Soul' that consisted of coffee, espresso, Mexican coffee and homemade whip cream that was to die for. We certainly consumed all of our calories back that we burned off during the marathon. And it was all worth it.
I would come back to CDA in a heartbeat. And miss the pine smell already. Maybe it's time to clean the toilets.
And when we returned home, we had these little treasures waiting to be picked in our backyard...
