We left Niagara Falls to make the final leg of the trip to Cornell. I went to Tim Horton's for breakfast and for the third time in a row, it's been pretty disappointing; but at least they have peppermint tea, which I am in love with. On the way to Cornell, we stopped at one of the many wineries around the Finger Lakes to see the winery's (Thirsty Owl) pet donkey, Dubie. Dubie apparently is famous at Cornell and I had to meet the infamous donkey. He was surprisingly cute. When we finally got to Cornell, we ran to my sister's award ceremony, which in typical Halpin fashion, we were late. After we got settled into the lovely dorm-rooms-turned-hotels, we went out to dinner at Ithaca's famous Boatyard Grill, which was delicious. Afterwards we went to an Irish Pub for drinks. It was nice to have the entire family back together, it doesn't happen very often.
