ANNIVERSARY TRIP, DAY 32, ALBANY, NY – SATURDAY, JULY 14, 2007


We left Henrietta for our next overnight, Albany. It is almost anniversary time! On Sunday night we willl be in Boston. We were originally going to go to the Matt Brewery today but their tours did not start until 1 PM. So we opted for the Ommegang Brewery which is near Cooperstown.

Ommegang was founded in 1997 and they were recently bought by Duvel, an old, old Belgian Brewery. We took the tour and tasted the beer. I liked the Witte. It is kind of like a hefeweitzen. John liked the Ommegeddon, a hoppy, wild yeast, lambic type beer. John also got a T-shirt with the Beeriodic Table on it.

Tonight we ate at the 99 Restaurant and Pub. I had a baked dish of lobster, crab and scallops with breadcrumbs and John had scrod. Yum, yum and yum. How I miss shellfish from the cold waters of the Atlantic.

Starting tomorrow there will be lots of pictures of the places where John and I met, fell in love, got married, lived, etc. It will probably all be quite mushy. I told John tonight how special he has made this trip for me. He has an incredible wealth of information that illuminates every place we go. I cannot imagine a better companion. Of course after I told him that, I had to explain why I was so important as well. Seriously, I have to at least be smart enough to ask interesting questions!
