Left Hyde Park yesterday at around noon, and about nine hours later, walked through the door at Palo Pinto. A long day of travel, but the flight wasn't bad. We ordered some Thai food and went to bed early. I kept waking up not knowing where I was, and managed to sleep in until 8:00, so I must have been tired. Felt sorry for Kev having to get up early and go to work. I don't have to be at my office until 1:00.

I was glad to see that everyone has been blogging A LOT, but I know I will never be able to catch up on reading them all. I will do my best. I also have some photos to post, but no time today. In the meantime, here are a few things I learned on my trip:

  • Sandwiches always taste better on the side of a cliff in the middle of a 7 mile hike.
  • Bats are really cool until one flies right at your head.
  • If you put honey on your finger, the butterflies will sit right there and drink it.
  • Frogs never drink.
  • The world's largest kaleidoscope in is Mt. Tremper, NY.
  • Apparently, fall is "asteroid season." (I am suspicious of that one.)
  • Sailing is fun!

If you are someone who is unable to embrace the heat, I recommend a trip to the Hudson Valley in late August, as it is delightfully cool and quite scenic.

Time to get back to the real world...

UPDATE: Not really digging the real world...I want my vacation back.

Welcome home. Glad you had a good time. Can I stay with Kevs parents if I ever go to New York?

I'm glad you had a nice August escape from the Hades-like Dallas summer.

Thank goodness the Tara blog resumes.

Frogs not drinking: That explains why my little teeny froggie cups never sold.
