Bike Ride in the Emerald Necklace

This morning we got up early and went to another park in the Clevelend Metroparks, this time the North Chagrin Reservation (I've never heard of parks called 'reservations', either). We went for a bike ride the length of the park, which turned out not to be wicked long, but from one end to the other and back was plenty after a winter of not much exercise. It was sunny and warm and cool in the shade. Another beautiful spring day!

Then we went for a little .75 mile hike to the Squire Castle on the reservation, which was cute and interesting, at least for a stone and brick building with nothing in it. But there was a description of what it was like when it was in use, and it was pretty cool to imagine it back then with plaster on the walls and furniture, etc.

We wound up the trip with a visit to Corky and Lenny's, where I got some corned beef hash and poached egg that really knocked my socks off. The hash was light on the potatoes and sort of pureed, unusual but delicious. We got some corned beef and stuffed cabbage to take home with us!
