Fathers Day

For Fathers Day my other and sometimes better half,
requested a little road trip.

The first place we visited is the small college town named New Paltz.

There is a charming place called the Water Street Market.

This interesting detail greeted us at an antique store.

Inside were many neat things, but I was being a good girl-
after all...it was Fathers Day....not Evi's day...or so I wanted to believe!

Well, as you can see, temptation was everywhere!

And as you can imagine, my resolve did not last too long......

Things just have a way of coming home with me.

I will share what came with me at another time.

This lovely little waterfall was a resting place for all weary shoppers...
...alas, we had 93 degrees and high humidity.

So no outside luncheon for us.

We had wonderful sandwiches at a small cafe...
... inside and air-conditioned.

Well rested, we continued.

There are wonderful little boutiques mixed in with antique stores -
- a shoppers delight!

Located at the end of the market sat a larger antiques barn.

What fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After we rested up a bit, we drove to a place called High Falls.

High Falls is a very tiny hamlet, but it has lovely stores.

And it has a very small fleamarket every Sunday.

Needless to say, I found something there too!
This by the way is an inn and restaurant called the DEPUY CANAL HOUSE.

This lovely Clematis had entangled itself around a bush.

This flag takes the prize -
I don't remember ever seeingone that large!
It was on the side of the Inn.

Our ride back brought us over mountains and stunning scenery.
The mountains in the background are the Catskills.

A picture from the mountain into the valley .
The mountains in the background are where we live.

Unfortunately it was a hazy day.
I have one more stop to share in my next blog.

Thank you for stopping by.

God bless you all,

    Your journey to New Paltz sounds delicious! This sounds like the type of Sunday my husband and I would enjoy. Was parking an issue?

    I just thought of another place you and your husband might enjoy for a day trip...Cold Springs, NY...a lovely little antique mecca right off the Hudson River...MANY antique shops and several small restaurants for noshing. Parking is only on the street.
    Happy Antiquing
