Up a (Not So) Lazy River Pink Saturday



For this week's Pink Saturday fun I'm sharing photographs from last week's birthday fun. I spent Tuesday in Tarrytown with my dear friend Sandy. We worked together for years and retired a month apart. Retirement agrees with both us, but unfortunately we don't get to spend much time together. Our time together is very sweet and our visit included a wonderful walk along the Hudson River in Tarrytown. In the far distance there is a lighthouse.


The park is new, and with the bridge and foliage, I was reminded of Monet's garden at Giverny. We were there on a Tuesday afternoon and we had the park to ourselves. I'm sure the weekends are more crowded.

The Tappan Zee Bridge is in the distance and there is a lovely marina here.  
 
The towns along the river are among my favorite places to visit. This was the first of my birthday celebrations on the Hudson and both were very special. I'll be sharing my visit to Irvington later this week.
 
As ever, thanks for visiting. Take good care. Keep cool and have a wonderful week!

Years ago one of my friends lived in Tarrytown. Not now though. It just hit me that surprisingly I knew the name of that town. It was a lovely weekend here. Hope you have a great week ahead!
