My sister, Dot, her husband, Jed, my mom, and I went down to Poughkeepsie in order to walk the new bridge over the Hudson River. Actually, the bridge isn't new; it used to be a railroad bridge that has been converted into a walking and biking trail. there are signs along the way that tell of the history of the area, importance of the bridge and how it was built, birds and fish found near here, as well as how the bridge was converted into this nice walkway.
The day was beautiful and it was getting hot as we finished our walk back. Dot was driving this fine day, and she took us back over the west side of the Hudson to a favorite restaurant in High Falls called "The Eggs Nest". The decor is eclectic to say the least but it has been "weeded" out since the last time we were here. The food, especially the quiche, is great. Dad might have been the one to find this and even he liked to come here.
