The Chautauqua Institute, Chautauqua, NY

The Chautauqua Institute on Chautauqua Lake in New York — one of my favorite places!  Idyllic, serene and quiet with a rich history and wholesome activity for all ages…

Chautauqua As much as I enjoy my morning cup of coffee, it’s the coffee time that is as important.  The early morning walk across Bestor Plaza for the Daily Chautauquan is a precious ritual.  When our children were young and we were fortunate enough to be able to spend the Summers here, getting their picture in the Daily before season’s end was the challenge and when it appeared – a very exciting treat!Chautauqua
