Hudson, New York

Normally when my husband and I head out of town we go to the North Bay. It's lush, beautiful, cell reception isn't very good (which forces you to disconnect), and it's only an hour away. This time we headed East to Hudson, New York - what I deem the North Bay of Manhattan. Small towns, abundant nature, and slow living. "It feels so good to get out of the city", as one woman put it as she waited outside Bonfiglio and Bread. It's always nice to have different surroundings and see new things. We took a red eye out for a 2 and half day adventure. 

Day 1 

Red Dot Ikat Dress, Neva Opet Bag, Loup Jean Jacket, and Black Flip Flops.

It was hot during the day. That glorious humid east coast hot that many hate, but I really enjoy. The jacket wasn't needed until sunset as we walked around town, checking out the shops on Warren Street like Behida Dolic hat shop and John Doe Records before grabbing a bite to eat at Olde Hudson Market and later getting some drinks.

After resting off our jet lag for a bit, we headed out for some bar hopping at OR Gallery and TavernBack Bar, and WM Farmer and Sons. The church windows caught my eye from one bar to the next.

 

Day 2

Levis, Parachute Tank, White Scoop Tee, West Perro Necklace, and Nina Nude Clogs

We had breakfast at Cafe le Perche then spent the day exploring the surrounding area.

First stop was the Olana State Historic Site where you can take in the view from this hill top manor.

We picked some apples and blackberries on a local farm.

Next we headed to the Walkway Over Hudson.

We squeezed in a quick walk to the Saugerties Lighthouse, but didn't actually make it to the lighthouse because it started to rain which flooded the walkway. My galant husband carried me over the larger puddles, so I wouldn't completely ruin my shoes. Dinner reservations at Swoon completed the day.

Day 3

French Stripe Crew Tee, Waterproof Windbreaker, Jean Shorts, Tennis Shoes, Patchwork Socks, and my new no label hat.

We had half a day before returning home, so we grabbed breakfast treats and coffee from Bonfiglio and Bread before heading to Kaaterskill Falls for a light hike.
