    Beacon

    March 25, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 5 °C

    OH MY DIA!
    This morning Craig and I did an early, little shop at the Food Works and Drug World. We were all pretty excited when it started to snow. Only flurries - but wow.
    Then we set out for Beacon. It is another town about 15 minutes north from Cold Spring, which was recommended by one of the shop owners here to Josy & Louise. The town looked pretty on the Internet and it has the Dia Beacon art gallery – recommended by Thelma. Well, Beacon was closed and quite boring looking! We took ages to find a place for coffee and eventually decided on Big Mouth Cafe as recommended by a local. Coffee was best so far – although overall it has been pretty bad in USA. AFTER THIS and a look over the Hudson River, we drove to the Dia gallery. What an interesting and challenging place! It was mainly installations in big rooms – like the Guggenheim in Bilbao but different. It had some similar pieces like the Richard Senna giant steel structures you can walk through. Some new amazing halls of the red and white ‘roadways’ – all mathematically calculated. My favourite I believe was ‘TRIBUTE TO THE SQUARE” where various rooms of white gauze-like walls had lights and openings which made you feel like you were in and out of a mirror – fascinating. Some were strange but overall it was most enjoyable. Nicholas pretended to be bored, Tony was hilarious. We went back to Cold Spring and had an enjoyable lunch of seafood chowder, salad, burgers etc. We really like this village.Read more

    Final Distination, Wappinger Falls NY

    September 20, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 68 °F

    I made it to New York! Had a fun ILS instrument approach into Hudson Valley Airport (KPOU).

    So far, I've flown a total of 22 hours.

    I will be staying in Wappinger Falls for the next 3-4 days while I attend a wedding party and visiting with my brothers and family.

    Exploring Beacon

    September 9, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 90 °F

    I went looking for another trail to hike and came across this pool. Yes it was closed, but it was so hot out and no one was around. I jumped over the fence and cooled off. Very relaxing and of coarse I'm always pool/beach ready. I headed into town and checked out the quaint neighborhood.

    FDR library

    September 10, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 73 °F

    Interesting museum. Very inactive and educational. I didn't stay there that long, because I had other places to visit today. I was really entertained that the entrance is behind a glass barrier and that the FBI has such a huge file on Eleanor Roosevelt, because of her suspicious behavior.

    Second floor

    September 10, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 73 °F

    Following traditions, men and women did not sleep together. The house was very grand, but the Vanderbilts did treat their staff good. The help ate the sane meals and were paid better than other employers. The tour guide even said that one person was left $250,000 upon the Vanderbilts passing.

    FDR House

    I took the tour of the home. Apparently, he convinced his mom to add both wings and the third floor to the house for the growing family.
