The way back

It rained, and rained, and rained, and rained all day. We kept checking the Yankees website for weather updates. It would update every couple of hours with the same message, “Gates Open At 5pm”.

We decided to just drive around and make a day trip up north. Its apple harvesting season and the farmers markets are alive with all this fresh vegetables, fruit and bakery stuff. We picked up some local maple syrup, honey, jams, muffins and fresh bread. They are very much into the organic growing and baking. I’m very much into the eating part, organic is good, I guess…….

I talked to a young girl behind the counter at the farmers market about ‘what to see around this area’. She explained about this hippy town six miles up the road that has all these cool shops and restaurants. We drove up to New Paltz. It sure was a cool town with lots of shops and restaurants but the hippy part we did not find. Maybe it is the definition of Hippy. Woodstock NY is where the ‘Woodstock Festival’ of 1970 took place and it is just a few miles away. I was a junior in high school at the time. That festival of people and music is my definition of hippies.

The heck with the rain, we were going to the game. If it cancels when we get there, then we had a good ride on the Metro Rail along the Hudson River for a couple of hours. We caught the rail in Beacon NY. It only took an hour to travel 75 miles and Yankee Stadium was a stop on our route. The Stadium is new. First season was 2009. Attendance was light, but the excitement was high. The place had a fun feel to it. Finally the rain stopped and it turned out to be a great evening. It was a close game with extra innings (12). The Yankees won 4-3. Another late night……..It’s going to be tough next week getting up @ 4:45am. Back to the real world.
