Saratoga Springs with Jan and Karen December 1-3, 2016

We started our adventure in Ballston Spa at the Whistling Kettle, getting into the Victorian spirit with tea, sandwiches and scones.

After a leisurely shopping day, we arrived at our charming Victorian hotel.

We go shopping for a Christmas tree at George's. It promptly blows off the top of Jan's car. A nice young woman helps us put it in the car and we get it home safely!

A trip to remember - and repeat again!
