The tree lined entrance to the walkway..very pretty and inviting.
Looking over the edge before we got over the river. Had to capture the golden carpet below.
Once over the Hudson River the views started getting really nice. I snapped this southbound train speeding down the track. Who doesn't love trains?
I am facinated with the little yellow house just below the the bridge...can you see it? Just past the two white houses.
There is that yellow house again...too cute.
Here is a good view of the walkway and I think you get a good idea of just how wide it is...30ft at least. I believe it is the worlds largest pedestrian park..how cool is that. Right there in P-town!
Over closer to the Highland, NY side sits this beauty of a home...what a view they have. I love all the gold in the trees.
While were about in the middle of the river, this fabulous newly painted ship floated down the river going north. Everyone ran to the edge to watch it come closer and then pass beneath us. Once it was under us we all ran to the other side. At that moment, I had a funny thought..why did we all frantically run to the other side...did we think it would not come out the other side???? I verbalized my thoughts and everyone cracked up and felt a little silly. I guess that was the child in us, since that is exactly what my boys would have done when they were young. We all thouoght this ship looked like it was made of Legos.
This is one of my favorite shots. The bright white of the church steeple, the Mid-Hudson Bridge in the background and the autumnal colors all make for a nice captured moment.
This photo is for my sister Maddy. She is terrified of bridges, but worked up the nerve to walk the walkway. She was very proud of herself. I wonder if she noticed these nylon ties all the length of the bridge. Do you think these are keeping everything together??????
Ok that's all my river photos. I hope you enjoyed walking across the Hudson River with me. If you are ever in the Poughkeepsie area, be sure to take in the beauty of this new and free state park.
I'll leave you with one last photo..on the way home we stopped at Cabelas, the sporting goods Megastore. While waiting in the car (knitting,of course) I spotted this beautiful site. Something about the blue sky, wonderful cotton ball clouds and the flags waving, just made me smile. I hope they put a smile on your face too. One more thing...while waiting, I spotted oak trees in the parking lot. I collected a big bag of acorn tops...I smell felted acorns!!!!!! That's another post ;-)
Until next time, be kind and stay creative.
