Still in a vacated state of mind. We had a great week away in the Berkshires, which we thought would be a great antidote to our last wedding of this month in New York. This one was in Williamsburg and I took no photos and no prisoners. But the Berkshires!?!
One thing for sure that we experienced while away was a sense of cleanliness and order. Our friend, who we stayed with, is a widower and a neat freak. He’s used to having things a certain way and we appreciated that. Now, if only I could get him to come clean out my house…but I wouldn’t want to scare him away.
So this will be short and sweet, so I can spend some more time cleaning before Shabbat, but i just wanted to share a bit with you now. These are from our first hike in Kennedy Park in Lenox. And yes, that is Channale, our friend’s dog. And yes, I managed pretty well sharing space with her for the week, along with some help of a pharmaceutical kind.
Maybe soon I will add a post called “You should be smiling when you eat dessert” that will be in memory of Marian McPartland.
This next one is of the footings of one of the buildings from the old Aspinwall Hotel, which burned down in 1931. You can read more about it here.
The next one is of a glacier dump. Channale is checking it out.
This last one is of our friend’s koi pond. Ahhhh.
