Tuesday’s destination was Esperanza Mansion, in Bluff Point. To get to Esperanza, the group rode 48.3 miles, covering quite a few hills, through the lovely little town of Hammondsport. The Esperanza Mansion was charming, offering splendid views of Lake Keuka. It was a perfect setting to relax and just take in nature’s beauty with your senses.
Many of us hopped in the SAG vehicle for a side trip to see the “Little Chapel on the Mount”. Jen said this was something you would not want to miss, and truly – it was a highlight of the day, if not trip. This chapel was built by the Garrett family as a memorial to one of their sons. Built in the 1930s, it looks as if it is from the fifth or sixth century.
Dinner was at a lovely lakeside restaurant.
