Obviously, this Hudson River sunset was from a different time of year, however, looking at the photo made me wish for a time when the snow was behind us,If you are not familiar with this area in the background you are looking at the top of the Catskills Mountains.  The body of water is the well known Hudson River and the photo was taken from the Henry Hudson Riverfront Park in Hudson NY located in the Hudson Valley. What can I say, Hudson is a popular word in this region.

Agent's DayI have received invitations to many  Agent's Days however I was never able to fit it into my schedule until this passed Wednesday.This particular Agent's Day was hosted by the Columbia Greene Board of Realtor.  This is the most northern MLS I belong to.  I have not met most of the agents in person and I thought this was a great way to do so.It was a beautiful weather day and we boarded the boat at the Henry Hudson Park Hudson NY, and took off down the Hudson River.  There was so much to see, the beautiful scenery and the vessels going up and down the river.  I managed to get some networking done between taking photographs :)A very nice lunch was served and there was also an opportunity to to win prizes.  I won two practical gifts, a book entitled "The Language of Real Estate"...

Winter Scene Snow, ice and freezing temperature is a fitting description of my area.  I am hoping Spring arrive early.  In my dreams :) This is one of my photo taken from a moving car, don't worry I was a passenger.  This was a scene just outside the city of Hudson heading south. Have a great weekend.

Fall foliage by the Hudson Cruise This time of year is beautiful, so many vibrant Fall colors.  Just the other day I was watching a boat heading up the Hudson River and I was reminded of how lovely it is to view the Fall Foliage by boat. There are many boat cruises on the Hudson River, however I want to introduce you to the Fall Foliage by the Hudson Cruise which is located at the Henry Hudson River Park in Hudson NY.             The Hudson Cruise offers an hour and a half tour of views of Fall Foliage.  The tour will take you to the Athens Waterfront  and down by the Rip Van Winkle Bridge where you can enjoy the Fall Foliage surrounding the Olana historic site.  It would also be an opportunity to observe wild life on the river. Fall Foliage tours are still available on: Sat        Octo...

Today while have lunch at the Mexican Radio restaurant on Warren Street in Hudson NY This was a view outside one of the window.  A sculpure of a Mariachi Band.  I did not have a chance to see what this sculture was made out of, however the Mariachi Band Sculpture inside the restaurant was made from barrels.

This was a glorious sunset I witnessed while standing on the Hudson waterfront.  Across from the waterfront is the town of Athens, and the summer there is a ferry running between these two towns since both are very popular with the weekenders. The Hudson River towns are now paying more attention to their waterfront and residence are making use of such space for festivals, concerts and picnicking.

Have you ever gone for a hike or a long walk and just wished there was a bench or some place to sit? You know when everything aches. Anyway back to the photo, this is a scene at Olana, a State Park where many love to walk or hike.  Because of the incline it can be tiring, so you would be happy to find a bench to rest if just for a moment.   I was thrilled to run across this bench.

Last week after an open house I decided to make a quick stop at one of my favorite spot in the Hudson Valley, Olana.  The stop was really worth it as you can see from the scene I captured.  I can understand why Federic Church chose this site to build his home, I would too.

This was the view from an open house I attended.  The side of the house facing the Hudson River and Catskill Mountain was all glass.  This was a far reaching view from a contemporary home perched high on a mount. Can you imagine waking up to this view?  A view that changes with the weather and seasons?

Who was that doggy in the window on Warren Street in Hudson NY? Who was that doggy in the window?  That was the question I pondered after leaving the Taste of Hudson in Hudson NY, and was heading up Warren Street to the car. As usual I was distracted by the variety of architecture and my camera was put to work, that is another blog in itself.  I was in the middle of taking a photo when I notice a dog with its head in the window.  I am sure he was listening to the music still playing at the Taste of Hudson event, and enjoying the lovely weather.   But who was that doggy in the window? It would be funny if someone from Hudson read my blog and name the doggy. Here is a clue

Taste of Hudson in Hudson NY The Taste of Hudson in Hudson NY was a big success; even the weather co-operated. A couple blocks were closed off so you did not have to dodge traffic.    There was a variety of cuisine, something for everyone, and even the music was an enhancement to the occasion as you will see from the video. Photos from Taste of Hudson in Hudson NY                     This was an entertaining performance.                       So much to choose from                     What a relaxing day, good food, music and delightful weather       If you did not make it this year plan to do so next year, it is a fun event.   Originally posted by Jennifer Fivelsdal at : Taste of Hudson in Hudson NY was a success

How is the Earth Foods Cafe & Deli in Hudson NY I stopped in at the Earth Foods Cafe & Deli in Hudson NY today.  I can’t tell you how many time I have passed by this eatery  when walking down Warren Street in Hudson NY. Because of the first part of the name “Earth Foods“  I made the assumption it was a health food store, however I recently learned otherwise. Today while I was in Hudson I decided to stop  in at The Earth Foods Cafe & Deli for a bite.     What I chose from the menu at Earth Foods Cafe & Deli There was a variety of wraps, sandwiches, and dishes to choose from whether you were a meat lover or vegetarian.  My choice was a smoke trout wrap.   I must confess I am not a big fan of wraps but this was different, very light, I did not feel like I was having a wrap.  The dressing o...

Baba Louie's in Hudson NY is a favorite place of my family.  At first I was a skeptic, I eat pizza but it is not at the top of my list.  Since that first time I have been back many times. I think the wood fired thin crust organic dough is the key to why the place is so popular. Then there are the wonderful salad you can chose from. Go ahead and take a look at Baba Louie's menu. There are actually three location, the first was in Great Barrington MA, the second in Pittsfield MA and the third in Hudson NY, here are the directions to all three Baba Louie's locations This restaurant is very popular but will not take reservations, so if you want to be seated quickly. arrive early.  It is not uncommon to see lines on the weekend when many come up from the city to stay at their country homes. ...

I was headed to a restaurant on Sunday in Hudson NY when I noticed this freshly stained door.  In Hudson there are many old buildings and with these building comes unique doors. It would be nice to find out who made the door and what inspired the carving on the door. Anyway I could not hang around I don't think the busy workers were in the mood for me and my camera.
