|Day One: Newburyport, MA. |
View while I downed my AM coffee.
We met at her barn, loved on her mare (who is also named Sugar!!) and settled in to watch a few rides of a dressage clinic that was being held at the facility where she boards. It was honestly the best ending to a long day of sales calls that I've ever had.
Fast forward a few days. The town of Plymouth made sense as a centralized base for my last two days of meetings. You've heard of Plymouth. It's home to the site of that famous Rock. You know, the most visited rock in New England (really? there are statistics on rock visitation?) the one the Pilgrims supposedly disembarked upon? More importantly, to me anyway, it's home to Cupcake Charlies, contestants on FoodNetwork's Ace of Cakes 100th episode celebration. If you are ever in Plymouth, Cape Cod, or Newport, Rhode Island, do yourself a favor and stop by this little slice of heaven on earth. I recommend the Hostess With the Mostess cupcake. Or the Chocolate Overload. Or the Lemon Drop. Or the Peanut Butter Pleasure.
|Plymouth Rock. A little underwhelming, right?|
So, it turns out that while I was in Plymouth my dear friend/first riding instructor and her daughter were going to be just down the road in Halifax, horse showing at Fieldstone Show Park. Sweeeeeeeeeet! Not only did I get to hang out with them and catch up over a very nice dinner, thanks to the hurry-up-and-wait nature of horse shows I was able to catch a couple of Kendall's rounds after my meetings.
|OK, nix the whale watching, I'm doing this!|
|LOVED the Boston Sports team fences!|
