saratoga, day 4 – brunswick & jumpin jacks

The Brunswick Bed and Breakfast was the perfect place to stay in Saratoga.

Our host, Kirk, was extremely gracious and cooked us a wonderful breakfast each morning, including blueberry waffles on our last day there!  YUM!

Our room was great!  Very spacious with a comfy bed and a jacuzzi!

We spent a lot of time relaxing on the wonderful porch…it sure is tough to be back to reality now!

We headed out for a quick 40 minute run/walk yesterday morning to take in the scenery before we hit the road.  It is so nice to explore a new city by running, I love it!

Before leaving Saratoga, we stopped in town to pick up some sandwiches for lunch.  We decided to try out The Bread Basket Bakery.

It was cute inside…the pastries looked amazing!

But, I went with an amazing sandwich instead – Spit and Spat Special.

And, I bought some freshly baked bread for the week!

We packed up our sandwiches in the car and ate them while enjoying the sunshine once lunch time rolled around.

This sandwich was just as amazing as it sounds!

Then, we hit up our favorite Ice Cream spot while at Union – Jumpin’ Jack’s!!

And, they had our favorite flavor soft serve – Pistachio!!

Happy last day of vacation!

We had a few errands to run on our way home, so we made a quick stop at Upper Crust Pizzeria for dinner – Greek Salad and Pizza!

Back to the grind!

The weather was a very overcast and a little rainy yesterday, but we headed up to Lake George for the morning to explore.  I had never been up there before and the downtown was a lot more touristy than I would have thought!  But, the lake was beautiful.

It was a little rainy, but still pretty.

We have been having a tremendous time away in Saratoga Springs!  Good food, good fun and good company.  Since we are heading out to another show tonight, I will leave you with some photos of our first day of eats (Friday).

Before heading out, I went on a quick 40 minute run to move my legs (about 4.5 miles).

Then, we  mixed up some smoothies and headed out of town…

My smoothie contained:

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 cup frozen mango
  • 4 frozen strawberries
  • 1 scant scoop Vega chocolate protein powder
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin seeds (for iron)
  • 1.5 cups coconut water

All blended up and ready to go.

Once in Saratoga, we checked into our Bed and Breakfast and set out to walk around town and find some lunch.

We decided on Wheatfields, a fun restaurant that uses all local ingredients!

If you can’t read the sign because of the Fedex truck (!), it says: from local fields to your plate!

I chose the chopped salad with romaine, tomato, cucumber, chickpea, Gorgonzola and a fruity vinaigrette that I requested on the side.  It was delicious.

After lunch, we hit up Betty’s Cakes for a Cupcake Sundae!  They were handing out $1 off coupons on the street, so we had to try it out.

Bettie’s is a bakery set up as a 50’s style diner!  I loved it.

We decided on a Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcake Sundae – a cupcake topped with vanilla softserve, whipped cream, sprinkles and a cherry!

We split it…and we killed it!

For dinner, we went to The Local Pub and Teahouse!  A pub and teahouse?!  What could be better!

We loved the logos.

And, the atmosphere and food were awesome!  We are considering hitting this place up again before we leave…

I ordered the veggie burger.

This was not just any veggie burger…it was a stack of grilled eggplant, roasted red peppers, avocado and mozarella cheese!  With balsamic vinaigrette for dipping.  It was out of this world.

Then, we headed to the Dave Matthews band show at SPAC.

No cameras were allowed inside, but we had fun!

We walked all over Saratoga yesterday – and too and from the concert.  In total, it was probably about 6-7 miles of walking!  Phew.
