Foxboro, MA and the Catskills of NY

We just returned from a week with family and friends, this time heading north and east. Our weekend in Massachusetts was a bit damp and chilly, but we loved spending time with grands Thomas and Ethan at Normandy Farms in Foxboro.

Ah, nothing like s’mores for dinner

On Monday we headed to the Catskills to see friends who had recently moved to Saugerties. Good food (Sarah’s a wonderful chef and we ate in the restaurant where she works), good music (James is an outstanding singer-songwriter and treated us to a lovely evening by the campfire) and good just being together! They suggested we hike Overlook Mountain (near Woodstock), which happens to have a  Tibetan Buddhist retreat center across the street from the parking lot.

Our friends from Honeoye NY were camping with us, and we hiked together to the top of Overlook .  Almost at the top are the ruins of an unfinished hotel, home to Timber Rattlesnakes and black bears (which others saw, but not us.)

As advertised, the views from the top were spectacular!
