Thanksgiving Recap

Well, vacation is over and I’m on the bus back to work. It has been a fantastic holiday!

I worked a half day on Wednesday and Tony and I got on the road to New York before 2pm. It took 6 hours to get there! It normally takes less than 3.5 to get to Orange County to visit his aunt.

20121126-075221.jpgWe got up early on Thanksgiving and did the 5K Turkey Trot. It was chilly to begin with but warmed up by the time the race started.

20121126-075247.jpgLook at the countryside behind us. My goal was not to walk and to finish under 33 minutes. I did it it under 29 minutes. This was Tony’s first 5K and finished around 24 minutes! I was so proud!!!
My thanksgiving plate!

We went hiking the day after Thanksgiving. It’s the edge of the Catskills, I think.
20121126-075420.jpgIt was called Sam’s Point Reserve and we walked to the ice caves and then did a look around a lake on top of the mountain/hill.
20121126-075446.jpgOn Friday evening, Tony’s aunt mentioned wanting to go to some nearby wineries and so that’s what we did Saturday afternoon. We visited 4 different ones. Here was Baldwin Winery.
Then we went to Brimstone and did a tasting of 10 wines and picked up 2 bottles.
20121126-075524.jpgHere was Whitecliff Winery. This place was very friendly and knew a lot about their wines.
20121126-075542.jpgWe drove back late on Saturday night and it took less than 3.5 hours and we didn’t hit any traffic. That was such a relief!

On Sunday, Tony had a meeting downtown in the afternoon and we decided to see some of the downtown holiday lights and displays. While he was in his meeting, I went to the Holiday Market and also to Macy’s. I took lots of pictures inside the market and saw a few potential Christmas presents. I hope to go back!


Then we walked to Faneil Hall where one of the biggest trees in Boston is. 20121126-075610.jpg I did some shopping there but mostly just enjoyed the afternoon and looking forward to the holiday season! Christmas is less than a month away!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
