A Trip Upstate

A couple of weeks back we were having dinner with Vivian and Stone and we discussed going upstate to their weekend house. Last weekend we took the Amtrak up to Rhinebeck New York. Vivian and Stone’s house is in Germantown, NY and I have to be honest. I am digging that part of the state. Now before you accuse Mary Louise and Paul Allen (My soap opera name) of drinking all day we actually took up some culture and attended the Thomas Cole Museum.

Thomas Cole is the founder of the Hudson River School who I understand doesn’t have a football team or team mascot. The house is interesting and I suggest that you have beers before visiting so you can have a sense of humor. Saturday night we went out to town and visited the local karaoke bar. A good time was had by all. Sunday we visited Hudson and took in some shopping before a good nap and dinner out on the town.
