  • Walking the labyrinth in the heart of the Catskills at the Harmony Hill Retreat Center, where you can stay in upscale yurts in the middle of the mountains. My review on the property coming in July.
  • We accidentally discovered a castle in Walton New York, which reminded me a bit of the small town I grew up in in many ways. It's got that New England small town feel to it, with a somewhat run down Main Street; the espresso shop, a small cafe and a few fabulous antique stores seem to hold it together. -
-
This castle was once an Armory as well as a family mansion and was then bought by Turkish chef Mustafa Sav (from Istanbul) in 2006, who came out of the Klessheim International Hotel and Restaurant Management School in Salzburg. -
-
It was built in 1885 by William B. Ogden for a niece of Arthur W. North, both pioneering families and the first settlers in the area. Today, it serves as a catering business, a spot for functions like weddings, and a restaurant. -
-
There's live music on the weekends, six upright pianos that separates the dance and dining area from the bar which also has a pool table and two foosball tables, neither which has a ball but we managed to play with the eight ball from the pool table. There's a dart board but with only one dart & drinks are cheap. -The wife of the owner is Ukrainian with a super warm smile - we later learned that there are many Ukrainians in the area. It was a fascinating if not quirky find in the middle of the Catskills.
  • Ever head to upstate New York's Catskills? If not, why not? Imagine going down the Delaware River at dusk, with Gold Finches, Red Winged Blackbirds & Starlings flittering about and Mallard Ducks with their ducklings hanging about near the edge of the shore. We passed a fly fisherman, wild flowers, jumping trout and went under a few old bridges for 5 or so miles. Oh so blissful!
  • A very trippy shot of the Queensboro Bridge, also known as the 59th Street Bridge because it's Manhattan end is between 59th and 60th Streets. -
-
It's trippy even without a fire-inflamed sky with its two-level double cantilever, one over the channel on each side of Roosevelt Island. Nice to be with you again NYC.

  • This gem of shot was taken right after our sunset picnic at Crissy Field, with views of the bridge and sailing ships in all directions. Has been a glorious week in Northern California! -
