NY: Tarrytown: Farmer and the Fish

Time simply unexpectedly unfolded in our best interest. Sunset was at 7PM and the traffic was horrific. Stopped. We reached our chosen restaurant – small without reservations on the water on the perfect evening. The valet reached for the car door and I was convinced we wouldn’t be staying I shared. Table 11 on theContinue reading “NY: Tarrytown: Farmer and the Fish”

NY: Katonah: Muscoot Farm

My healing injury has offered me the opportunity to find local easier outdoor offerings to enjoy. Fun to see all the smiling families on a hayride around the farm.

NY: Westchester County- Peekskill-9/11 Memorial

One of my inspirations for my outdoor adventures is pausing at a site of a 9/11 memorial (original link for my inspiration at bottom).

While many of theContinue reading “NY: Westchester County- Katonah- Lasdon Park (Winter)”
