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.
