Hudson Walks, 4th of July, Hopkins Inn and more

Collage_20140706151340436Happy 4th of July weekend here in the US to everyone. :) We had a three day weekend for Memorial Day so we ended up having to work on the 4th (Fr) and 5th (Sat) this time around. No big deal as the weather was really pretty awful for the 4th anyway. It cleared out for the weekend which worked out since we had to work on Saturday but had dinner reservations outside on Saturday night. 

Had reservations at the Hopkins Inn which is a place we go to about once or twice a year. We usually try to go once during the summer around July 12 (our American wedding anniversary). Had a great time sitting outside (no humidity at all) and enjoyed a lovely dinner on the porch overlooking the lake. I had trout and Mike had filet followed by yummy dessert and a bottle of Gruener Veltliner. 

Today, Sunday, we enjoyed some more of the nice weather and went for a hike along the Hudson. Checked out the Olana State Historic Site in Hudson. They have about 5 miles worth of trails that used to be old carriage paths all over the property. Lots of really neat views. Had fun walking the various trails. The weather was warm/hot but not overly humid which was good. Then lunch at the Northampton Brewery in MA afterwards which was yummy. 

Tomorrow it's back to work and probably lots of "after the holiday" craziness. Joy. :) 

But next weekend we have reservations at a 5 star hotel in lower Manhattan for our wedding anniversary Saturday night. Hope the weather works out so we can do some stuff outdoors and enjoy the rooftop bar at night. :)

A letter went out on Friday to: Charles/TN. Letters are going out tomorrow to: Celia/MA, Nina/WA and Laura/Spain. Received a letter/owe a reply to: Jessica/DE, Katie/Germany,Kimber/BC and Carmen/Malta.
