We started the day with brunch at Ozzie's, a restaurant recommended by the people we rented the house from. Their breakfast was SO good that we went back on Saturday! My favorite was one of their October specials, the pumpkin pancakes. Jenny LOVED her apple bread french toast...as you'll see below.
After breakfast, we decided to make our way to Alford, MA - being only 30 minutes away, it was obviously a must. It was a tiny little "town" - not much to see...no stoplights...only a few buildings in one area - but I'm glad we went.
I'm so happy I'm an Alford. :)
Travis was on umbrella duty so we could take pictures without ruining our cameras.
Saturday was much nicer. The trees were beautiful!
We spent most of Saturday at Mass MoCA (The Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art), which was fantastic.

As we came in, we saw that there were some giant swings under one of the underpasses by the museum. After wandering the property for a little while, we found them!
We finished out the week by visiting Lee and Stockbridge - two cute towns south of where we'd been staying. There were cute shops, a few antique stores (I love antiquing) and a great little creperie called the "Starving Artist Cafe". I assume it's because they are so close to Tanglewood - funny! There's a beautiful church in the middle of Lee's downtown whose wooden frame steeple is the tallest in New England.
Three Places in New England" is the Housatonic River at Stockbridge. It was beautiful - easy to see how it could influence him!
Now we're back home. Not ready for work tomorrow!
