Can you spot the gnomes hidden in the garden?It turns out that that the people who named the towns and cities in New York state were either not imaginative (Rome, Verona, Waterloo, Paris, Amsterdam, Lyons) or too imaginative (Schenectady, Horseheads, Fishs Eddy, Fish Kill, Skaneateles). By the way, "Fishs Eddy" inspired a good fifteen minutes of (late night) conversation between Dave and I about if it was missing an apostrophe or spelled incorrectly. After all, Fisha Eddy makes much more sense, right?!?!?
Anyways, where was I going with this post again... Oh yes, to Athens! The one in New York. It was a cute little village, with lots of beautiful flowers, and a diner right on the river.
After lunch we crossed the street to frolic in the park, check out the action on the Hudson, and lose the lens cap for our camera. It landed perfectly on the boardwalk and rolled all the way into the river. The kids were amused. I wasn't.
