spectacular sights along our journey. Here are some of the highlights of our road trip. And yes, there was food!
Off we went! I was the driver for the trip and she was my co-pilot with maps in hand. I had programmed the directions into my "smart" phone, but half way into our trip, the phone decided to stop guiding us. It's a good thing we brought the old stand by maps!
Part way into our journey we decided to stop for a breakfast break in Middletown CT. While sis went into Dunkin Donuts to grab us something, I stayed out in the Jeep and gave that great hat a try on. Fuel in the tummies and we hit the road again. Journey on....
Once at our destination, it was eating time again. (I know, it sounds like food fest but we did get lost a couple of times and that added to the total trip time) We found this lovely eatery in Gardiner NY called Cafe Mio. What can I say but great food, great atmosphere and a great big thank you to Marie.
We were running short on time to get to the fair
for the first day so we dropped our stuff off and headed north toward Rhinebeck.
The Hudson River Bridge was so pretty. I had to take a few shots on the ride over. There's a walk bridge you can go on to cross over the Hudson too! We didn't do that, but there were many pedestrians up there when we drove under it. I'm sure there must be some sort of parking lot at the entrance for your vehicle. Perhaps the next trip we will give that a go. Perhaps....(it's a wide river!)
Heading back west toward Yogi's for the evening.
The following days views from the Kingston Bridge. The Catskill mountain range from high atop the bridge.
I made my exit from the comfort station to head back to the cabin. Looking down at my first tracks in the wet grass and at all the clover, I made my way back up the hill. I reached the fire pit area which had blue stone coverage. I noticed a tiny white sea shell in the rocks and bent down to pick it up. Hmmm...I thought to myself, 'I did put all my sea shells in my hoodie pockets from Thursdays trip to the beach'. I can't believe I lost one...and another...and even more. I picked up a good hand full of my precious shells. I placed them at the end of the picnic table and proceeded up the porch stairs, all the while looking for any stray shells I may have missed. Once at the top of the porch, I placed my hand on the door handle while looking puzzled at the bag of trash we left on the porch...(not like us) and then the leopard print beach towel hanging on the porch railing told me (finally) that something wasn't right. I was at cabin 83 not ours! Phew!!! I let go of the door handle and tip-toed off the porch and ran over to our cabin. When my sister came outside she asked me why I was laughing. I said, "You're not going to believe what I just did". to which she replied, "What, did you go to the wrong cabin?".
Here's what the inside of OUR cabin looked like....
Until the next adventure.....
