The Tales of the Traveling Tote is a series of adventures that share where our Mackenzie Childs tote bags have taken us. Four times a year a group of bloggers each write a connected post about the places we have been. We have built incredible friendships through our blogs and we hope you enjoy our tales as much as we do!

The happiest people don't have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything!
Many Saturday mornings over the summer were spent at the Farmer's Market ...
...and my Traveling Tote was often filled with fresh veggies and fruits...
There were a few trips to Ohio this summer to visit family:
Mom and I (and Miss Taylor) spent a Sunday in July in Sharon Springs with the Beekman Boys, touring the farm, lunching and shopping:
...you can read about the day here.
A few days later John and I ventured out to Sodus Bay....
...a beautiful town in NY on Lake Ontario...
...and we visited the Sodus Lighthouse Museum...
...which was built in 1870...
...with an adjoining dwelling for the "keeper"...
...which is now a museum.
In the distance you can see the Sodus Point Beacon:
...the property is lovely, with gardens, benches and a refreshing lake breeze!
The next weekend was the Mackenzie-Childs Barn Sale, so it was "back to the Motherland" for some great bargains and my "Barn Sale Pic with Justin from NYC" and you can read about that day HERE:
August came quickly and we went to Ohio for a Yankees Game and a birthday party - three generations spent the weekend in Cleveland:
At least once in the summer we drive up to Oswego, on Lake Ontario, to eat at Rudy's - a local fried food joint on the water. A week before, a storm, with waves of over 10' high, washed stones up over their sea wall and ripped up parts of the cement patio. Many hours were spent cleaning up the area however there is still a lot of work to do as some picnic tables are still under stones! The water was so calm that night, but it was not too sunny and we missed what could have been a great sunset! So on the way home we stopped for ice cream and John had an idea for a photo op in the large Adirondack chair:
At the end of August I spent a few days working in Albany and enjoyed Saratoga Springs after work each day.
