Getaway Drive


I drove and just kept on driving the other day, and ended up in Windham, NY, which is about an hour from my house. We've had gorgeous weather here lately, and I just couldn't resist taking the time to give myself a mini getaway. It was relaxing, and somewhat head-clearing, which is a good thing.

Yep, your neck of the world is simply beautiful! Especially this time of year! Now go pick some apples and pumpkins for me, will ya??!

Beautiful! You know when I think of NY these are not the type of images that come to mind. You have provided a bigger picture for me. Looks like a great day for a drive.
I hope you didnt take these pictures while driving!

Yes, Linda, there is a vinyard there, although I haven't been there, or seen it for that matter. They have a website:
Windham Vinyards

So Kat, what sort of things were you picturing when you pictured NY? Apple orchards and whatnot? :) This is some state we're in. You should see pictures from up in the Adirondacks. Unbelievable.

Sandra, it's been hot here for the last two days--in the 80's. What is it down there? 110? Hee!

Tamara and Carol, thanks for stopping by!!

Oops! I ignored you, Amber! LOL! I'm feeling a bit better, thanks. Still in a bit of a funk. I'll pull out of it one of these day! Oy.

I always think concrete jungles everywhere. It really is gorgeous and green. Reminds me a bit of Washington. lol! I hear it gets darn cold in the winter tho.
Im spoiled by pretty mild temps here. Not to hot and not to cold.
I love that old red barn photo. You should paint that and send it to me!
