Driving Miss Mia

Lynne Robinson, Hewitt, New Jersey

A new category has been added to my blog. Since the addition to our family of our Miata, (more commonly known to us as Mia) I foresee new adventures in our future in which she plays a major role. Therefore she deserves her very own category: Driving Miss Mia. The blog posts will range from me snapping photos along the way, to photos once we reach our destination and who knows what else.

It was a beautiful weekend. Perfect “top-down” weather for sure. On Saturday morning we started our drive up to Monroe, New York and Warwick.

Our drive took us along the shore of Greenwood Lake.

A stop for ice cream at Bellvale Farms. They have the best view of the lovely Warwick valley.

A funny sign on the way back from the Warwick Winery. It says something completely different on the other side as you approach the Winery but we didn’t realize it until we were past it. Next time…

And no, we didn’t taste. We just drove there to find out where it was never having been there before.

An old barn along the way.

Look who’s driving!

Later on that day friends Bill and Carol called to see if we wanted to take a drive down to Lake Mohawk in the Sparta area. They have a convertible too, you see. On glorious days the “Convertible Club” (which also consists of neighbors Kim and Mark) get together and go for drives, usually ending up somewhere to eat.

It was a beautiful drive down and I can’t wait to do it again once the trees are out.

It’s a quaint little town with odd architecture here and there.

We walked along the boardwalk next to the lake.

We stopped into a local pub and had a beer, then a slice of pizza and headed home.

After watching this pretty hawk fly over us I had to wonder ... do people in convertibles get bird poop on their heads very often? Certainly something to ponder.
