This fountain is standing by on the sidewalk...just waiting for the renovations to be finished.

This brave Mennonite choir was singing to the commuters last night. Their song had a repetitious line "Somebody will pray for you". I tried to wait for a break in the people to take a photo but that wasn't happening. Plenty of other people stopped to take a photo and then hurry on to the next train.

Margaret Beekman Livingston had this home built in 1781 to replace the earlier (1730) home that was burned by the British in 1777. Her son, Robert Livingston, was a member of the 5 person team who wrote the Declaration of Independence. He also swore in George Washington as the first president of the United States.
This is the view of the Hudson River out the front door.
The back of the house.
This is the garden view from the back porch.
We brought a picnic and ate it on the grounds of the mansion while enjoying the view of the Hudson.

Last night I took a class to make the little book above...which doesn't look like much in the photo but was fun to make. The class was held at the Ink Pad with the displays shoved to the side and a couple tables set up in the middle. Jennie, the teacher who is a famous mail art personality, is from San Francisco and I've taken 3 other classes from her.

Look all the way down the center of the photograph. Those are people as far as you can see!
I'm more interested in the color and the characters than the food.
Love this shot with the buildings in the background.
What??? Free refills!
Look at that wood burning pizza oven in a trailer.
Poor little guy! Weird how I take pictures of all the BBQ stuff!
And all I ate was grilled corn! Just one.
This stilt walker was the best. She kicked. She danced. She hopped. But best of all she leaned all the way down to talk to every child and to shake hands with every person in a wheelchair who passed by.
Cucumber limeade brought to me by a man in a serape and sombrero...yes, please!
Even the trash cans were colorful.
But the funniest thing at the food festival was.....
the Rolaids booth!
