A few scenes from last night’s trip to the fair.


Scenes from Saratoga Race Course

Here are some scenes from a recent visit to the Saratoga Race Course.

Now where did they go?

Got great seats! Let the racing begin!

Enduring a brief shower

A wet day at the track

The exhaustion shows

Weighing in after the race

The track is fun for kids of all ages

You lookin’ at me?

Annie and the Hedonists entertained before the race

Annie belting one out for the crowd

Good tunes from Annie and the gang

taking a break between songs


Rounding turn three and heading for home

Betting is serious business!

The canopies at the grandstand make for interesting shapes

A full house on a warm sunny day

At the Georgi

Went to to the Georgi with my wife the other day. She had heard about it from friends. It is a quiet little place in Shushan, tucked behind Yushak’s. Seriously, if you blink, you’ll miss the road. Luckily, there is a sign posted so it’s not a total mystery. We could not go in the museum since it was closed. However, we were able to stroll the grounds. A number of people were swimming in the Battenkill which borders the grounds, or lounging on the gravels beaches near the river. A few kayakers had drawn up on one of the banks for a rest, or perhaps it was too shallow to proceed. At any rate, the grounds are nice for an afternoon stroll or a picnic, and if the weather is right, for a dip in the Battenfill to cool off. Here are some pictures I took that evening.
