Snowy Morning in Nyack

Peaceful morning walk.

In summer, this house is hidden behind a wall of greenery.

Cozy... Reminds me that it's time to walk back home and have breakfast.

Shopping for Food in Nyack

The fanciest shopping cart area in town ~ The Old World Market on Route 59. It's within walking distance of the village and is a beautiful market and deli - cafe - bakery.

Back in August of 2008 ~ a food market in the heart of the village is about to open. "Now Hiring" signs go up. This will making grocery shopping on foot a lot easier for those living in the senior housing nearby.

January 2010. Over a year later the market is going to open sooner or later. No rush. The "Now Hiring" signs are still up. This was where the old Tappan Zee Playhouse once stood. (It was torn down awhile ago, and we had a vacant lot for several years.)

"Each man takes care that his neighbor shall not cheat him. But a day comes when he begins to care that he does not cheat his neighbor. Then all goes well -- he has changed his market-cart into a chariot of the sun."
~ Emerson

"Eat before shopping. If you go to the store hungry, you are likely to make unnecessary purchases."

Palisades Mall

Yesterday had some windy and stormy moments and we briefly lost information.

"Everybody gets so much information all day long that they lose their common sense."

Fire & Ice

The Knickerbocker Ice Festival at Rockland Lake State Park 

Today is your last chance to experience it.

The park is especially beautiful after dark.

Notice the ice tongs insignia on his suit. The artists are at several work stations in the park.
