Few places are quite as magical as the Hudson Valley in New York State. The photo above shows the Walkway Over the Hudson. The last time I was there, a gust of wind almost blew me away (thank God for my heavy camera that seemed to be anchoring me down as my wide brimmed hat seemed to not be helping the cause by making me slightly levitate off the walkway).
On that same occasion, my boyfriend and I walked across the Hudson River and into a neighboring small town. This little town had a florist that made arrangements with fake flowers, a hip coffee shop where a local totally cut us in line, an abandoned plaza that could be used as a set in a Wild West movie, and quiet homes that looked like they were frozen in time, in the 50s.
We typically go up to visit the Hudson Valley several times a year for adventurous day trips. This past year, with the pandemic, no one was able to go anywhere. I am looking forward to the Hudson Valley adventures 2021 hopefully holds. My mind is there, today.
