Weekend Wanderings

I hope you all had a great weekend. It was glorious here, with all the trees turning their vibrant fall colors. The sun was shining, the air was sweet and Saturday was a great day to get out and about.

Janet and I generally plan on Saturdays to be 'our day'. We've just about got her family acclimated to it but they would much rather she stayed home and played with them.... too bad... so sad! lol

Anyhow, I read that there was a metal salvage place up in Kingston so that was a 'must do' as well as the Hudson Valley Materials Exchange in New Paltz which I have written about before. It's a treasure trove of materials donated by different manufacturers. It might be wooden circles, marble tiles, doors, windows, paper, fabric... you name it it's there, so much fun to root through and the prices are very cheap cheap cheap. They do a great job there, keeping all these products/bi-products out of the landfills.

So, we did the Materials Exchange and headed up to Kingston on Rte 32 which connected with 213... easy peasy.... and a beautiful ride. BUT....... when we're nearly there suddenly we come upon a closed bridge and detour. Long story short... round and round we go.... 213 detoured this way... that way.... over hill .. over dale... and we never did find the metal place. The comedy of errors was compounded by the fact that not only I forgot my cell phone... but so did Janet!

We'll go up again sometime and all in all it was a great day. Just wanted to share one of the pictures I took along the way.  It's of the tower at Mohonk Mountain House in New Paltz.  Enjoy.... and have a great week.

Best... Canace
