Day 12: Travel day, driving from Lee, MA to Saratoga Springs, NY. It was another cool, windy day but mostly sunny for a change.
For those not familiar with the area, Saratoga Springs is the site of a number of natural springs which were touted for their medicinal benefits for many years. The business that sprang up (no pun intended) around the springs over the years coupled with a world-famous horse racing track turned this into a resort community. Much evidence of this remains, even though the springs were replaced by "real" medicine in the late 50s and early 60s.
We arrived in Saratoga Springs mid-afternoon. After quickly checking into the hotel, I headed off to the Saratoga Auto Museum and Sal to the Tang Teaching Museum at Skidmore College. We each got our art "fix" for a few hours.
After the museums and dinner we took the "back way" to our hotel and ran across a number of gorgeous (and some not so gorgeous) old homes from the resort era. A few pictures below; more to come later.
Norwich NY is today's goal with more cars and art in the offing.
