Heading home today but one last picture of Prentiss Pond
Some of the beautiful flowers on the grounds of Hildene
A Sunbeam Pullman Car at Hildene. Robert Todd Lincoln was President of the Pullman Company. This car took four years to restore and is now on the grounds of Hildene in Manchester, Vermont
Hildene – the home of Robert Todd Lincoln – the only surviving child of Abraham Lincoln. We have been to Vermont numerous times but never stopped to tour Hiildene.
Decided to hike to Hamilton Falls in Jamaica State Park. The mosquitos were out so we didn’t stay long
Tour Boat waiting at the locks in Schuylerville
Another shot of the Hudson River. Wonder if there was a bridge across the river at one time.
A trip to Saratoga would not be complete without at lease one picture of a horse. This horse is outside the visitors center.
Saratoga is only about an hour from the B&B where we stay in Vermont. We were really surprised at the number of shops and restaurants. We had hoped to go to a winery but no luck. One of the wineries in town was closed, another one had not opened yet.
Tried to find one on the outskirts of town but address we put in GPS did not work and all we saw was an open field. We tried one more time in Port Edward but that one was closed and for sale. Oh well.
We still had a great day
Saratoga has long been known for its glorification of horses, but another popular part of Saratoga culture is dance. The city plays host to the annual Dance Flurry Festival, along with elaborate galas, the National Museum of Dance and the New York City Ballet summer season
The National Museum of Dance selected 24 artists for a project called Saratoga En Pointe! Each artist decorated a five-foot tall fiberglass ballet shoe sculpture. These fiberglass ballet shoes are displayed throughout the City of Saratoga at select locations
Saratoga Springs has a very nice park. We were surprised to see so many goslings
