Martha’s Dandee Cream and Grill, Queensbury, NY

Love the mannequin exhibiting the signal

location, location, location – Martha’s has all three – throughout the road from the Nice Escape Six Flags Park; a big parking zone and properly seen from the highway. However location isn’t the one factor Martha’s has going for it. Additionally it is effectively run with good meals and pleasant service.

We drove into their parking zone and noticed a row of crimson packing containers with water leaping between them making a fountain, an indication with a rooster, lengthy constructing with a number of stroll up home windows (with no traces) and lots of people.

Martha’s Ice Cream

We walked as much as an open window and ordered small scorching fudge sundaes with mocha ice cream, mine with peanuts, Erica’s with out nuts. They got here extremely quick – superbly layered with smooth mocha ice cream, scorching fudge sauce and peanuts. There was whipped cream and a cherry on high. The sundaes have been a beneficiant dimension and scrumptious – the smooth mocha ice cream was very flavorful, the peanuts recent and crunchy, the recent fudge didn’t soften all of the ice cream – a terrific expertise.

Scorching fudge sundae with mocha ice cream

The ice cream much more pleasing due to the beneficiant quantity of seating. We selected benches going through the loopy rides on the amusement park throughout the road. I’ve by no means been courageous sufficient to do curler coasters, however I like watching them.

We liked this place

Martha’s additionally has a full grill and plenty of different meals, however we have been solely within the ice cream so we didn’t take a look at the remainder. I actually preferred this place.

Within the space: We stopped at Martha’s on our approach dwelling from Tupper Lake the place Erica simply completed their Tinman Triathlon. I used to be a terrific spectator.

Tinman Triathlon swim

Tupper Lake, positioned in Adirondack Park in upstate NY. was settled within the 1844 primarily as a lumber producing city. Within the late 1800s it sustained a big fireplace destroying a lot of the city, which was rebuilt to the city it’s right now. Finally the lumber business turned much less essential, however remnants are nonetheless seen in placards in parks, skeletons of buildings, lumberjack competitions and rail trails.

My first encounter in Tupper Lake was a household trip a few years in the past once I was in highschool. About all I bear in mind of that journey was going to a dump at twilight to see black bears – I by no means knew that I’d ultimately reside in essentially the most densely populated state within the nation and sometimes see black bears within the wild – once I walked within the woods after work (I noticed two cubs final week), crossing streets and even in my very own yard. I additionally bear in mind I preferred Tupper Lake. I nonetheless do.

My subsequent encounters with Tupper Lake have been once I was in faculty in Potsdam, NY. My journeys dwelling all the time went by Tupper Lake – I bear in mind seeing their Lumberjack Festivals and stopping to get snack or drink. I’ve all the time discovered the Adirondacks to be one of the stunning locations on the planet, and Tupper Lake to be a terrific place to leap off for climbing, swimming, or kayaking,

Our journey there this 12 months included tenting on the Little Wolf Campground – we loved the view of the clear, flat, lakefront campsite, the guitar taking part in of fellow camper, the kindness of the proprietor who allow us to use his kayaks to look at the sundown as we paddled across the lake. I extremely suggest this campground if you’re staying within the Tupper Lake space.

I walked numerous miles exploring the city in the course of the triathlon – there was a walkway alongside the Racquette Pond with placards in regards to the lumber business within the Adirondacks. Fascinating truth: A number of corporations logged within the Tupper Lake space on the similar time. When with the logs have been reduce, the have been all marked with the corporate that reduce it, so when it was floated downstream, they might maintain monitor of whose log each was
