Out of the City

Sometimes one has to get out of the city to look at historic things.
This is the DeWit House in Tappan New York. Built around 1700.

It was George Washington's winter headquarters one year during the Revolutionary War.

Sometimes one leaves the city to go to family parties.
This one was given by by my son's in laws for Bobby's 30th birthday.
It was a really happy day.

The wonderful Abby and Charlotte (Kristin's nieces) were the stars of the day - as they should be.
You need lots of children at a birthday party.

Then you have to go home to the city on the rail road.........


  1. Looks like everyone had a nice time.


  2. I have never minded taking the train home, even at night. It means I don't have to drive...

    And happy birthday to your son!

  3. That reminds me whan I lived in Rhinebeck, stone houses and railroad to got to the City


I look forward to hearing from you!
