Bye Bye Fall

With this cold blast the last two days and temps in the low 20's (gasp!) I realized I never posted about our Thanksgiving weekend. It was wonderful. Dinner was great, and the best part was all I had to do was eat and enjoy, no cooking for me this year! The turkey was great as were all the fixings. David's Mom and Gramma did a great job preparing everything.

The Saturday after was such a gorgeous and mild day that David and I decided to head over to our favorite place in Long Island, Caumsett State Historic Park. Back in the day before we were married and living on LI we used to go there all the time. In the Spring we'd take the walk to the end to see the new blooms rising up and smell the onion grass. In the Summer we would take our bikes and ride around and finish off with a picnic in the grass. And the Fall we would take our last walk of the year to see the leaves changing and say goodbye to mild weather. Whatever the season it is a very special place to us.

It was wonderful to return. You begin with a walk by the stables and say hello to the horses out in the pasture. Then through the tree shaded path for about a mile and a half until you reach the end, with the massive Marshall Field estate overlooking the Long Island sound down below and views of Connecticut off in the distance.

That seems slightly unfair.

Sounds lovely!

I think it's especially nice that you and David could enjoy your favorite spot as a couple of two - before you soon become a family of three. :)
