Another long weekend trip due north over Columbus Day. We were blessed with possibly the last warm weekend. First stop: Farm Project at Saunders Farm in Garrison. As we entered the farm, cows were grazing alongside sculptures in pasture. We loved it. It was incredibly peaceful and beautiful. And there were much more cows than humans in the field. Sun was warm, and leaves were changing colors. What a perfect afternoon that was.
Next day we went on a bi-plane ride - 15 minute trip over Hudson, forests and pastures. It was simply awesome. I've never flew on anything other than commercial aircraft, so it was first time for both of us. We loved it. At $65 per person, it was a treat. Being with a kid was a good excuse to do something like this.
Then we went antiquing in Hudson. This city is dubbed Brooklyn of Hudson Valley, and it sure felt comfortable with antique shops, galleries, cafes and such. I felt we could move there the next day. They also got lots of cute old houses. We loved it.
Next day was for apples! Beautiful plump apples ready to drop to ground! This was at my old favorite farm destination of 20 years- at Greig Farm in Red Hook, New York. We also picked up some pumpkins in a vast pumpkin field, then spent a quality time with goats, his favorite farm animal. Theirs was cute dwarf goats. Except for the traffic coming back, everything was just perfect for this little weekend trip.
