Biscuit Takes the Cake
It is a LOT underwhelming if a buttermilk biscuit is the dish of the day (although I do love a good buttermilk biscuit). I hope the food gets better, and thanks for reminding me about Ed’s lobster rolls. I really want one now.

Exciting News
I’m excited to hear about the new place and come for a visit (once travel bans and quarantines are lifted). And, the “barnyard” taste is why I have never even tried lamb. I’m afraid to go hungry after I hate it! But chicken Parmesan is one of my favorite Italian dishes when it’s done well. No tiramisu for dessert?

This is exciting news. I have only been to Providence once but got the same impression. Very like Portland. I hope you are both well. Kimberly

True Joy
Between the wine, full moon and fireflies, Ms. Joy was very much enjoying the evening with you two!

Enjoyed this
I laughed over your canoe escapades! It sounds like you had an enjoyable weekend. I agree that bugs can definitely dampen an outing! I was crossing my fingers for you as you went to your final dinner! So glad that it was memorable and enjoyable!

Fall should be beautiful
It sounds like that area will be beautiful to visit in the fall! I love the historical sites! It will be great to revisit your travel blog when we travel there!

Have a Wonderful Birthday Weekend
I’m trying to take notes on everything. Is this place on a route that Jeff and I might drive in our RV to “See the colors” one autumn in the future? The food sounds lovely, even for someone without a refined palate (like me).

Looks wonderful
You make it sound very relaxing to be traveling for the Thanksgiving holiday. The Thanksgiving dinner sounded exceptional!

No Such thing ad Enough Gravy
Wow! Charleston sounds like a must see. Thanks for the vivid details. Dinner sounds wonderful, and I would have probably been asking for a second helping of cornbread dressing (that was about one-third of my plate at our dinner). Loved the picture of Tarragon on the bed and reference to opera at the Met (that’s on the agenda for our October 2020 visit to NYC and Philly).

My Kind of Turtle
But will the parade be comparable to Macy’s in NYC? LOL I was drooling over the turtle torte dessert. Yum. That slice looked HUGE. Definitely something to share. Happy Thanksgiving.

All the food sounds so delicious!

Loved reading about your trip to France 🇫🇷
Chris and Jerry, I love that you think to remember me when you travel! It almost makes me feel as if I’m with you, which would b fun. From the description of the trains, food and hotels I am in awe. Please travel safely home and continue to remember me to continue receiving your blogs! Love them and love you both! Love Dave and Steve

Aix is where my DIL Kacy studied abroad for a semester. She recommends crepes at “the place under the road.” This means NOTHING to me, but hopefully it will mean something to you. I’m going to share your blogs on that part of the trip with her. I hope that’s okay. I know she loved it there (she was a French major, taking translation while she studied at the college in Aix but her true love is lighting and stage design).

Your poor feet!
That was quite a day! 15 of the 20 is quite a feat it sounds like to me! I hope that you recovered for the next day's adventure!

Silly Criminals
First, I love the picture of The King. Your description was great, too. I could totally picture his boredom. Also, I can’t believe someone thought you would be an easy target. Man oh man! I’m glad you and Jerry dealt with the duo of thieves. Who knows if the two were undercover agents or a pair posing as them to diffuse the situation? Anyway, you showed them! And, I’m looking forward to the horse photos :)

You had a lovely view for this dinner! Do you often run across a wine Bible that extensive while traveling? I would so enjoy the cheese cart and dessert! I think I would daily eat crepes, croissants and as many cheeses as I could if I ever had the opportunity to travel in France.

Good to know that some place has fresh strawberries nearly as good as Oregon! I'm sure that you were missing the days of picking them yourself! The weather sounds lovely! So happy to hear you are having an enjoyable time! You must be doing well with all of the walking.

I was thinking if you took those copper pots, you’d get a look inside a Pariasian jail. That would ALSO be a new experience, right? Glad you resisted. All of those museums sound excellent...and I want that STUDY! And some strawberries. Still have to wait about 6 more weeks for those.

So Jealous
You mentioned earlier in the trip that you weren’t getting as many comments, I tried to comment several times and couldn’t. The error told me “You can only comment on published blogs.” Um...okay. It IS published or I wouldn’t have been able to read it. So...I don’t think it was the quality of the blogs (although I noticed the spelling errors have increased *wink, wink*) I am sad I didn’t get to travel to Italy this year, but we will go in 2019. When I visit at the end of summer, we’ll have to make a list of must-see things. I’m taking the SIstine Chapel off the list, and I might even forego Rome on this first trip. I really want to see Florence and Venice and if we only have ten days...So, be thinking about the must-see Italian sites. Thanks for sharing your experiences.

Excellent final review! I totally agree with you on the cooking class in Florence. While the location was breathtaking I would not consider it a hands on cooking class as they advertised. That being said I still enjoyed it and the food was really good. My favorite pasta dish was also the Pasta Amatriciana and of course my ox tail. My favorite city was Venice. I thoroughly enjoyed our trip!
