Coffee in the 'Gunks: New Paltz

Saturday, February 02, 2008

Drove to New Paltz, N.Y., this morning to explore the town. After lunch at Village Tea Room, M. biked to Rosendale while I hit the shops. As in Hastings-on-Hudson, it was too cold to wander outdoors for too long so I settled on a faded couch with a pot of tea at Muddy Cup Coffee House and sketched the artsy young types that were there. (Pentel brush pen & watercolor in Hand-Book journal.) After M. was done biking, we drove a little into the Shawangunk Mountains and ogled the gorgeous scenery before heading back home.

Here's a sampling of the lovely scenery in these mountains. We definitely want to go back in the spring or summer, when we can explore the area further and spend more time outdoors. It's only an hour and a half away, after all.
