NOTE: this first photo belongs with the quilt at the bottom of this post but I couldn't get it to move Oops
We planned this trip months in advance to celebrate our 33rd Anniversary. It was actually my husband's (Bruce) idea. He loves waterfalls and has always wanted to visit Niagara Falls. After a lot of planning, and decisions made, we decided to leave a few days ahead of our Anniversary and stop at two different cities in upstate NY. on the way. It made the trip more interesting and not such a long drive. It takes about 10-12 hrs to get from our home in MA to the Canadian Border. We also booked some dinner reservations and a show at the casino connected to our hotel.
The first day, we only drove about 4 hrs. to stay in Albany NY. Unfortunately it was pouring when we arrived, but our suite was very nice and I had a jacuzzi to look forward to using later.
We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express near downtown Albany.
On a happier note there was an antique, running, carousal up on the top floor that was so pretty and we enjoyed watching all the kids having a great time. You could look out over the city on that floor. Here are some photos I took:
Here is a quilt that I felt compelled to make after 9/11
I will be back with another post, continuing our road trip. If you are interested, check back again, trust me, it will be more interesting after we get to Canada.
