SideTrek Route 5 North to Bernardston on a sunny 70-degree day to try FarmTable restaurant. Outside umbrella, please. Crabcake okay, if light on crustacean. Burger tasty. Sass Pinot Gris delightful. Smuttynose Old Brown Dog Ale delicious. Took home a loaf of their bakery’s olive bread, it was so good. Lunching al fresco on a warm mid-October afternoon, priceless.
Hopped over to Northfield on Route 10. Meandered along the Connecticut River on a back road that parallels Route 63. Through Montague, Sunderland. Hatfield farm-stand stop. Mums and bread in tow. Perfect IndianSummer Saturday.
