The great November thaw has arrived and the day is rainy and grey, what better time to share some picturesque snapshots of an Inlet resident’s frequent hiking excursions and walks about town with her two canine friends, Cornbread and Okra Fritter. Amanda Miller, who moved to the Adirondacks from Texas in 2002, owns and operates the Screamen Eagle restaurant in downtown Inlet alongside her husband, Matt. Amanda also works at the Old Forge and Inlet post offices on a part time basis and has two children, Lorelei who attends the Town of Webb UFSD in Old Forge and Alex who lives in Greenville, SC with his fiance, Hunter.
Amanda has gone on frequent (sometimes daily) nature walks with her pups by her side for the past several years as a means to unwind from the daily hustle and bustle which can be especially trying during the busy summer months.
“My pups are my best friends and being outside with them centers me,” Amanda said. “I love knowing I’m doing something positive for their health and mine.”
