Short Week

We were away over the Memorial Day weekend and then went home for two days to New York. I therefore didn’t have time or enough internet access to produce a blog post on any meaningful topic.

Here is a picture of the scenery  on the long hike we took in Newfane, Vermont.

We also went to Hildene in Manchester, Vermont. Hildene was the summer home of Robert Lincoln, Abraham Lincoln’s son. It was a big house but not ostentatious. It is large property and the views were beautiful.

My favorite room in the house was Mary Lincoln’s study. She was Robert’s wife; the room had a small desk,¬† a seating area and large windows. The windows looked out on a formal garden. Each square had peonies that were just about to bloom.

On the way home from Brooklyn where we had been visiting our son, we drove past the hospital where I was born. I had never seen the building so it was great to do that. It has been converted into apartments.
