We took a quick weekend trip to Poughkeepsie, NY this weekend. This was a little birthday surprise for me. Mark knows how much I like to get out of the city, so he planned this weekend for us. We took the Metro North train line up to Poughkeepsie. The train ride was close to 2 hours long. The majority of the train ride is along the Hudson River, so it is quite scenic and relaxing. I really enjoyed it. I thought I'd post a few pictures of our weekend.
The pictures are of us on the train, swimming in the hotel pool, walking around the estate of Samuel Morse (inventor of the Morse Code and the telegraph), and walking across an old railroad bridge that has been turned into a walking bridge across the Hudson River. It was a great weekend!
