On yet another rainy day, we decided to check out the local shopping and the area close to Lincoln. We just started driving down a road, which ended up being a subdivision, but before we turned around and headed back, here was this beautiful waterfall beside the road. Like I said before, the rains may be a pain, but it’s keeping us in beautiful waterfalls.
Also as I’ve said before (time and time again, sorry) when we travel, we like to stay away from the chain restaurants and sample the local pubs and breweries. Just south of Lincoln, in the town of Woodstock there was a great one called Woodstock Inn, Station & Brewery. As the name implies, it offers lodging, informal dining and at the Brewery – the pub/brewery atmosphere that Jim and I just love. The brewery was a pretty small operation, so we didn’t get a tour. After several “samples” (we had to be sure), we decided their beer was very tasty and came back a couple more times during our trip. There is quite a selection of brews from which to choose and their website gives a great description of each, as well as a photo, so you can check the color. Check it out here. I love chicken salad sandwiches and I order one every chance I get – theirs was delicious!
“On Christmas Day 1982, a century-old home on Main Street in North Woodstock became home to the Woodstock Inn, which then boasted four guest rooms, a 25-seat restaurant and a room for the owners up in the attic. Two years after it opened, the owners reached over to Lincoln to save a bit of that town’s past, its old train station. Sawed in half and carefully transported a few miles away to the Inn, that station became the Woodstock Station, allowing the expansion of the kitchen and the dining room, and larger owners’ quarters.” – READ MORE
This was a very short day, but a great one – with a little beer buzz and yet another beautiful waterfall. Ahhh. I love vacation.
