This afternoon I got together with 2 of my friends, George and Byron. We went through a sunflower maze and then had dinner at an upscale restaurant nearby. The restaurant is called the Inn Between. It is in an Italianate style farmhouse (C. 1880) that sits among rolling-hill farmland between Camillus and Elbridge, just west of Syracuse. The family that runs the restaurant also owns the surrounding farmland, where 75 acres of sunflowers are currently planted. They have created a maze in the sunflower field next to the restaurant. Wandering through the maze was a delightful experience!

There is a cluster of bee hives under the trees at the left. We saw lots of bees on the sunflowers.

More sunflowers, the restaurant is in the background.

This flower had a diabolical expression on its face.

Your's truly, looking a bit bedraggled after wandering the maze.


After exploring the maze, the 3 of us had a fabulous dinner. Our table was next to windows that looked out over the sunflower maze. I had French onion soup, a Caesar salad, and roast duck served over sage dressing with roasted mixed vegetables and mashed potatoes. For dessert I had a chocolate and raspberry mousse. Our waiter was very friendly, and touched me on the shoulder/back 8 times during the meal, (yes, I counted ;-)) It was all very delicious, decadent, and pricy, ...As I like to say: You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough! ;-)
