Fall returns! I don’t know about you folks, but I am feeling an urgent need to live it up, as I fear that this may be the last of it that we get. Last week’s sojourn in late November was in no way enjoyable. If any of you haven’t made it out of the city for a little fall color yet, here’s a little vicarious foliage for you with the second half of my trip to the Catskills.
After our trip to Storm King, we drove west to Deposit, New York, to stay at the Chestnut Inn at Oquaga Lake. If you’re looking for a weekend getaway with your honey, I can’t say enough nice things about the Chestnut Inn. It was, quite frankly, so romantic that the boy and I started speculating on the things that would have to happen next if it was a movie. You know, tragic misunderstanding — one of us diagnosed with terminal illness — we catch Legionnaire’s Disease from the two-person jacuzzi tub. (On second thought, that last would be more of a slapstick comedy.) Deposit’s a bit out of the way (it was about two hours from Storm King), but well worth the trip.
