Weekend in Reedville & Fairport

Gail and I took off for Reedville this weekend. Hoped in the hybrid, and spent a little time enjoying earth (outdoors really) to celebrate our own version of earth day. Here are some photos from our excursion.

After an incredible dinner at Fairport Marina, we headed over to downtown/mainstreet Reedville to one of the best ice cream shops we've ever been to - Chitterchats. It has become a weekend regular anytime we're in the area. The hand dipped ice cream is good, but what really makes this unique is the home made, hand turned, waffle cones (take note Lee's & Carl's, good ice cream is nice, good cones are the reason to come back). This night they had to call in the master cone maker (her husband) to do a little catch up from the brisk business.

If you plan on visiting Reedville, I recommend any of the following for dinner: Fairport Marina, on Fairport Rd, Crazy Crab & Tommy's on Main St. FYI, rumor has it that Tommy got started in the kitchen at Fairport Marina. If you come by boat, you can tie up at either Fairport Marina or the Crazy Crab. For desert I recommend dropping by Chitterchats for a scoop or two, with the waffle cone.
