Gerry & Dorrie and the Catskills

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

Woke up shivering this morning at the Walmart Arms.  It was a cold night but we survived.  Got up and did our morning chores and headed for Roscoe, NY.  We have some friends there and wanted to stop by and say hello.  We have mutual grandchildren with them through Lucy’s daughter and their son.  They live in the beautiful Catskill Mountains.  The drive was slow because of the winding mountain roads and we had a little rain.  But the mountains are amazing and the drive was very enjoyable.  We arrived in Roscoe and drove around a little and then had a very good lunch at the Roscoe Diner.  Then we headed up the mountain a little farther to Gerry’s and Dorrie’s home.

This is a creek a few feet from our friend's home.

We had tea and cookies and some good conversation, but we were anxious to get off the mountain before dark so we headed out again.

We drove down the mountain and through some hills to a KOA campground near Poughkeepsie, NY.  We will rest here tonight, catch up on some chores and tomorrow to Connecticut and back to our coastal route.

I told you we were going to see the Statue of Liberty. I didn't know they moved it to Poughkeepsie.
