You know how in cartoons when characters see something outrageous or unbelievable they rub their eyes as if their eyes are not functioning properly and are showing them some mirage? People in Delaware County were doing that no doubt on July 10 as hundreds of Mini Coopers descended upon the county, proceeding along the "Mini Takes The States 2022" (MTTS) rally according to MINI USA.

MTTS is a rally of Mini Cooper owners, traveling together along a route that runs from Burington, Vermont, all the way down to Spartansburg, South Carolina. The rally left Burlington on July 9 and passed through Delaware County on Sunday, July 10, making a fun stop at Polar Bear Homemade Ice Cream in North Franklin. Can you imagine seeing dozens of Mini Coopers pulling into your business parking lot? The folks at Polar Bear were probably thrilled. Below is a photo courtesy of Polar Bear Homemade Ice Cream of the Mini Cooper rally stop at Polar Bear.

This past weekend, the rally landed in Spartansburg, SC for a big weekend of fun activities for the Mini Cooper enthusiasts. The nine-day rally event explored nine states and eight cities. Doesn't that sound like a fun trip? It almost inspires me to get a Mini Cooper, a vehicle I have always liked the look of since it just looks fun!

Do Mini Cooper owners have more fun? It sure looks that way 😉.

14 Tasty Places to Pull Ashore and 'Dock and Dine' in Upstate New York

"Dock and Dine." I knew people did but I did not know that it actually had a name for it. With so many gorgeous lakes in Upstate New York (as well as rivers and canals), it is no wonder that the owners have thrown out the welcome mat for boaters who are drifting by to stop and have a bite. They have established docks, piers, and marinas right outside the restaurants and the boaters and their guest don't even have to get their feet wet! All ashore!
