Day 8 Cleveland Vacation



So this morning we were surprised to see a deer in the yard next door. I texted a picture to my friend Jeanette who is visiting family in Tennessee. She sent me a picture of the deer in their yard and a picture of wild turkeys and said “I’ll see your deer and raise you some wild turkeys.”
I then sent her a picture of the wild turkeys I saw the other day and said we have them too!


Mike following the deer down the street.
My father in law Nate Cabot used to say “If you don’t like the weather in Ohio wait 5 minutes.” Well it took a little more time but within days we went from beautiful Indian summer hiking weather to rain yesterday and then today it started to snow! It was so exciting!

We took a scenic drive to Oberlin College which is such an interesting, cute, old fashioned college town. Had so much fun shopping in several fun novelty shops and a Ben Franklin five and dime store. While we were there it started to snow. That was so exciting. I was especially happy to finally see the Oberlin college campus as both Mike’s uncle Joe and my uncle Renso and my cousins husband all graduated from Oberlin.

Very cool shop called Ratsy's
Here's the shop owner. She was a lot of fun.
 The Ben Franklin five and dime was so much fun.

A little place called Larder delicatessen and bakery founded by Jeremy Umansky is a jewel of a find in Cleveland Ohio. From yelp a quote:”James Beard Foundation nominated Eastern European delicatessen and bakery with Jewish deli roots. From knish to pastrami to chocolate babka we've got your cravings covered. We also offer a wide variety of fresh groceries from flour and sugar to local milk and produce. Proclaimed to be the "Best Deli in America" by Michelin starred chef Daniel Boulud.” We had a great late lunch here and enjoyed a lengthy conversation with chef and founder Jeremy Umansky. The Reuben Pastrami sandwich was so good. Larder Delicatessen & Bakery, Cleveland, Ohio. 1455 West 29th Street
