Today we went to the Hyde Park area to see Franklin D Roosevelt's childhood home. After his mother died it became his and Eleanor's home. This was one of 3 homes located on the family land. The information provided by our guide was very interesting. This once 1500 acres is located on the Hudson River. I am here to tell you that this area is beautiful. We also went to see the Vanderbilt home. Wow is all I can say to this home.
We went to a local brewery for lunch and then meandered over to New Paltz to see the historical Huguenot Street homes that were settled in 1678 by a small group of french protestant refugee families. Their descendents lived in the houses well into the 20th century.
Along the way, I found a house that I would absolutely love to live in. Van informed me that we could not afford it but I can dream anyway. I took a picture and, who knows, maybe one day I'll get lucky enough!! It is located on some beautiful property.
We are off to New York City tomorrow. Wish us luck.
