we visited our friends in the catskill mountains in mid-september. it was a quick, overnight trip, but lovely to see the leaves just starting to change color. the electricity went out during the storm that came through, but it added to the fun with lit candles and snuggling in sleeping bags.
the next day we explored an area that used to be a local dentist’s home.
we walked through the abandoned homes.
one of the structures was demolished because it was unsafe. it was sad and beautiful.
my friend tried to swing at some apples in a tree.
we walked along a little stream.
the kids went fishing, but didn’t catch any fish. they didn’t need to to have fun.
thanks to our friends for having us.
