Boston to Albany - New York State

Before I forget about the game. Any fans of Spicks and Specks will know Barry Morgan and his organ. Well we swear he plays at the Red Sox games!
Sadly we are on the move again, although we could have spent longer in Boston. I certainly could have gone back to Winmill Fabrics in Chauncey Street! Great fabrics, great service and great prices.
Anyway, off to the station we go and get on our first train for our journey to Albany,New York State. We are now convinced that train travel is for us. Our first leg took us to New York Penn Station and then on to Albany. The train follows the Hudson River and it was a lovely ride with great scenery the whole way. We are travelling Business Class all the way but today we could have been just as comfortable in coach class although more crowded.
We were met at the station in pouring rain by the courtesy bus from the hotel and taken on a tour by the young driver who is very knowledgable and rightly proud of his city which has some magnificent buildings which are beautifully maintained even if not in use. There is a mixture of modern architecture too but it all seems to sit well together.
Tomorrow we are out to the airport to pick up a car for our only driving experience on this trip to get us to Bennington in Vermont for a very special date in the Bennington Museum. You wouldn't believe it but they have issued flood warnings here so we are hoping all is well in the morning. Come hell or high water we are going, even if by canoe!
Even tho' its only Saturday here, Happy Fathers Day to all the dads.
