Brighton and Jamaica Bay

For Thanksgiving we took our friend Barbara with us to eat at Tatiana, a Russian restaurant, on the boardwalk at Brighton Beach, Brooklyn, New York for lunch. We all had red borscht, I had duck, and Barbara and I shared a huge Pavlova for desert. That was so good! After that we went to Jamaica Bay, part of Gateway NRA in Broad Channel for the sunset.

New Paltz Doors

The Huguenot settlement in New Paltz was founded in 1677 on land purchased from the Munsee. Here’s a bit of native American history in the region.

For Norm’s Thursday Doors.

New Paltz

After viewing a house in Kerhonkson, NY we drove to New Paltz. There is a 10-acre National Historic Landmark District in New Paltz, Ulster County, with over 300 years of history. More about that will be in my post on Thursday. At the bottom is a painting of what it looked like in 1685.

Catskills NY

Found a lovely house in Kerhonkson but it was too far from medical and shopping plus there was no cell phone coverage there. Sigh. We’ll keep looking. Pictures taken during the trip.
