My Sister, Debbie, had not seen our fifth wheel, so before we pulled out, Debbie and the girls stopped by to have a look at it. We always like showing off our camper, in the 2 years we have had it, we have covered a lot of miles in it and it still looks nice. After tearful goodbyes, we pulled out for the next part of our journey.
Our trip out of Vermont was a lot smoother than our trip in, so we made a note to make sure and travel I90 East toll road through New York state to Albany and then into Springfield, Massachusetts and then take I91 North into Vermont. I have already stated several times that the toll roads in New York are very nice to travel on with wonderful rest areas along the way.
We reached the KOA in Saugerties, NY in early afternoon. The campground was so nice with a lot of trees and a nice playground for kids. It was fairly empty when we arrived, but it filled up fast. We ate at the Village Diner in town, which was in the downtown area of Saugerties. The food was delicious, with generous portions, homestyle and reasonably priced. My favorite thing was that dessert was included in the dinner price!! The next day we drove around Saugerties and the town has an awesome quirk, all throughout downtown and extended out from there are pedal cars mounted in front of stores and houses and individually decorated. Here are a few that I was able to take pictures of:
There were so many that we did not get pictures of, but it is a 2 lane road through town and it was difficult to take pictures while driving.
Because we were just a few miles from there, we drove over to Woodstock, NY. Woodstock has embraced the image of free spirit and it is reflected in the stores and their names. It has bunches of boutique stores and we did not make any stops in Woodstock, just drove through because it was very busy and there was not much parking available.
We found an old Railroad station just outside of Woodstock.
This was a nice break before getting back on the road to our next destination…Pennsylvania!
