Stay-cation: Photo Walk One

by Stacey


The girls super-shortened (thank you mean, mean Winter) Spring Break took place over Thursday and Friday last week and I decided we needed to have an adventure or two. As I looked back at our camera roll, I saw picture after picture of the girls snuggled on the couch (thank you again mean, mean Winter). It was time to get up and get out of the house.

We had originally planned to go in to the city on Friday but had to make a quick change of plans when we realized that the temperatures were going to struggle to get out of the 40s (apparently mean, mean Winter is not anxious to leave). I spent the morning e-mailing various friends who are good at day tripping and after compiling the results we headed out to Nyack, New York. We were looking for an area with a water view, cute shops and fun restaurants and Nyack fit the bill.

Here’s a bit of what we saw and did…


After our long, long winter, lunch with a water view was pretty great.

IMG_4832We visited the strangest book store I have ever seen. The entire store, and it was quite large, looked like this. It was not a used book nor a new book store but a mix of each. As I stood in certain corners, I thought there was no rhyme or reason to the piles but then I would turn around and a section would be completely organized. There were current best sellers nestled in to piles that looked the above. I was either charmed or terrified. I’m still not sure which.




The people of Nyack seem to like sweets as much as our family does.

Stay tuned for pictures of our second adventure…

    Isn’t that bookstore the craziest thing? Never thought to mention Nyack to you, since for me & Jim it’s like a second home…so glad you discovered it!

      Oh my goodness Donna! Next time I see you we have to remember to talk about that bookstore- so strange!

    What could be better than carrot frosted cookies and pink ladies??
    That bookstore is so weird!

    That does look like a wild book store:). I found a fun one on our spring break as well. Love it.
