Look where we're going tomorrow!

Yup, that's right the Saratoga Races.

Racing Posted by Picasa

I think it is going to be fun. I never particularly wanted to go myself but the old lady did - so now I am taking her just to make her depressed and Ken is coming along too. I have been perusing their web site I think it will be more fun than I thought. With 8 or 9 races and a dollar a bet you can have a little excitement too.

The drive from Vermont looks lovely along the Battenkill most of the way. The weather is supposed to be great and this will mean a three day weekend!

Too bad we can't stay the night because look at the cool stuff going on tomorrow because it is the Traver Stakes Festival:

I don't know why you wouldn't have wanted to go in the first place... I love horse races!

Those other things you mentioned (wine tasting, music on the roof) sure sound like things Ken would enjoy anyway. Too bad you can't stay overnight.

Well, have a good time!
