Daytrippin’ at Sonnenberg Mansion

It’s funny how you take things in your own Backyard for granted….. I’ve never once thought about visiting this place, but the thought of moving to another state has really made me look around.And this past Saturday we took a ride.. just down the road from us, really..30 min. away. to..Sonnenberg Mansion and Gardens. it sits high on a hill overlooking one of out finger lakes.

there was a craft show going on , with food and music, so i thought i could get my Hubby to go.ill going to start with the out side of the mansion.
