We spend so much time working on the house, shopping for the house, cleaning up the mess we’ve made in the house …. that we don’t get out and about as often as we should. We love the Hudson Valley and have not had enough opportunity to explore. So this weekend, Chris decided we would visit two parks that are very close to us. They were each pretty great and have different things to offer. It was nice to get outside on a gorgeous late summer weekend and enjoy the area.
Saturday took us to Croton Point Park. Situated right on the river, there were so many pretty views, a great breeze, well-maintained hiking trails and lots of places to gather a group for a picnic.
Then on Sunday we explored Roosevelt State Park. I think I liked Croton Point better, but Roosevelt has a pool. A huge pool! And it wasn’t crowded when we arrived around noon. It might get crazy with kids and radios and … humanity. But I might give it a try some time …
