I wanted to spend some time in Cooperstown ONE more time before moving and I wanted to spend a quality day with my friend Vera, so today I combined the two. I picked her up at 9:30 and we headed to Cooperstown. Our first stop was at THE GENERAL STORE that used to be Newberry's where Vera bought some craft supplies.
Then we went to BROOKWOOD GARDENS. Not many flowers are in bloom just yet, but it is such a lovely place. I think Vera liked the birdhouse best.
We looked at the various exhibits on the lower level and the first floor and I was getting hungry and tired so I suggested we go out for lunch and return. We went to the Otesaga for their lunch buffet. It was tremendous!
After lunch, we walked around the inside of the hotel for a few minutes, and also sat out on the porch facing the lake for a minute or two. Then we headed back to the FENIMORE ART MUSEUM where we toured the third floor, which had a HOMER WINSLOW exhibit, which was very good. We went back down to the lower level to see the Adirondack paintings by Arthur Fitzwilliam Tate for the second time.
When we walked down to the bark house, but we could not go inside. When done with that walk, we headed back towards Oneonta where I dropped Vera off. It was a great day, Vera and I had a lot of fun.
