Empire State Wrap Up

We don’t completely understand it, but as much as we love to travel to the far reaches of the globe, so often, the places that we find most interesting are right here under the flag of the United States. This adventure in New York is no exception. We are preparing to head home tonight, but I want to put up a few more pictures. I hope you enjoy them.

The Vanderbilt Mansion on the banks of the Hudson in Hyde Park, NY — another example of the excesses of the Gilded Age.


We really enjoyed our time at the Rhinebeck Aerodrome. It’s mind boggling how many vintage airplanes they have displayed. Rick says that Snoopy always flew a Sopwith Camel. (I’m just taking his word for it.)


In Albany, we stopped to see the New York State House. It’s such a pretty building, but we could not go inside because of Covid-19.


Couldn’t figure out why it was so hard to find a parking spot at the capitol until we saw all these old cars. Sure enough, they were filming a movie here.


We even squeezed in a quick visit to Fort Ticonderoga.


It was such fun to see the Saratoga Race Track even though the start of race season is a few weeks away.


Funny! These people are not heeding the sign in Congress Park in Saratoga Springs!


Check out what appears to be real horse hair tails. I’ve never seen tails on carousel horses like this. I dreamed we bought this carousel, took it home, and put it in the barn for the little Lawsons.
