Greetings From the Adirondacks!


Whew! What a whirlwind the last 24 hours have been!

I started out on Saturday morning going to see the new Batman movie, it was most excellent! Then it was back home to get ready to go out with Todd, my brother, his girlfriend and her son to see The Freedom Fight in Gatineau Quebec. My brother totally lucked out and through a friend of his got us excellent seats, very close to the ring. I'll only put up a few pictures as I know full contact Mixed Martial Arts is not everybody's cup of tea.



After a late night last night I was back in the car this morning with my Mum we're now in Keene, NY staying at a beautiful Country Inn! Wow this definitely a beautiful corner of the world!!! So after last nights fighting here's the other extreme... we got to witness a Polo scrimmage!



Tomorrow we're hoping to go horseback riding... hopefully I'll be able to keep you updated.

I love the Adirondacks! DH and I took a drive up through them back when he was stationed in Saratoga Springs, NY. Of course that was in the fall, so lots of great foleage. Have a great trip! Keep us posted :)

DH got me hooked on MMA...I competely loved watching FightQuest on the Discovery Channel.

And how funny, I think I know EXACTLY where you are staying....for our honeymoon, we went to the Adirondacks, and stayed at a B&B in Keene that had stables and a polo field!!

Hannah said...

Hey Dani. Keene is about 1 hour south of where my family lives. However, my mom and grandparents are currently in flight to Alaska :) I'm so jealous!

I grew up in the Adirondacks in Ticonderoga, between Lake George and Lake Champlain. I love it there and spent a week there earlier this month.

I hope youhave fun!

You'll have to go back in the fall sometime. :D Have you tried any of the maple syrup?
