Ivy League Strolling

A mere 45 minute trip east from our home today brings us to the beautiful town of Princeton and the magnificent campus of the famed ivy league institution. What a spectacular campus we find! The day is fairly cool and a bit overcast, the perfect ambiance for such a visit.

Strolling through the grounds brings a certain reverence to all that encompasses age old traditions. We thoroughly enjoy our meandering and peek in several courtyards housing various dorms, gardens that adorn back yards, and a cathedral that is nothing short of magnificent. It is quite a treat to voyeur here and we remain for quite awhile.

A short drive from campus is a
typical farm in these parts and we take a quick break here, buying some of the locally grown produce and indulging in their renowned apple cider doughnuts. Yum!!!!

Further along our path brings us back to the quaint town of Lambertville, where this time we park the car and pace the streets a bit. The town houses one of the best Mexican restaurants we've tried, a favorite of our guests, and we indulge in a late afternoon early supper at Tortugas. Each plate rivaling for the best choice! It's a lovely ending for our afternoon excursions and we enjoy all facets hugely and continue to embrace this state of New Jersey!!
