Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving gathering with lots of leftovers for today to make that all important hot turkey sandwich!!!
We had a great dinner at Campagna, the new restaurant at the Bedford Post Inn. Thanksgiving was served family style, with everything on the huge menu brought on plates to the table one course at a time. Easy to pass and share. And the best part, plenty to bring home as leftovers, all neatly packed up for us to carry home. We didn’t know a soul at the restaurant so we surmised that they were city peeps coming out to the country for the day. Not many huge families either – mostly couples, and tables of friends who didn’t have family nearby and didn’t want to cook.
Enough about Thanksgiving – photos for today are compliments of Libertarian Advocate, Sound Beacher, and Cos Harbour.
The one from LibAdv I’m sure isn’t his own dog or taken by him even, but as fellow pit bull owners, he knew I’d love and want to post this anyway!
Cos, a variety of photos on his travels yesterday and in the city, his specialty, architectural marvels.
Sound Beacher made her way to MY neck of the woods, I mean really my neck of the woods, the Mianus Gorge, practically in my backyard. It’s a gem that we truly appreciate here, that we gladly donate money to keep its projects and research going, so I’m glad out-of-towners are coming over to see what we all know – that the Gorge is a treasure.
The colors in the fallen leaves with pretty green ferns.
The Mianus River, it’s so pretty with the sunlight sparkling.
There is an old stone quarry and hikers have picked out the best rocks and created a display. As with any park you can’t remove anything. You know the saying: Take only pictures leave only footsteps.
The rocks on display, include quartz, feldspar, and mica
What a beauty
This is a great hiking place but it closes for the winter on November 30th, so the paths and woods can return to nature. I just went for the first time when I shot these pics. Now I’ll have to wait till April to get out there again.
