A view back toward Beacon harbor from the Newburgh-Beacon bridge.
Invisible from the road in the summer, note the plaque on a rock in the woods, just above the top tube in this picture
While I was taking a photograph of the Goudy tribute across the street, an older Australian couple came by on bicycles and, after I offered to take their picture, they took mine. Lucky you!
Not far from Goudy's place is the Gomez Mill House. In 1714 Luis Moses Gomez, who as a child, had fled with his family from the Spanish inquisition, purchased 6,000 acres of land along the Hudson Highlands where several Indian trails converged. Read more at http://www.gomez.org/millhouse.html
Across the road is this little waterwheel, built later.
The house proper. The fieldstone wall is the original house layout from 1714.
There are lots of apple orchards and vineyards in Marlboro, NY.
The requisite red barn shot.
Just a few days ago on this loop, there was no hint of autumn color.
Looking back toward the Hudson River.
Apples of all varieties to your left, Concord grapes to your right.
Back home at Bank Square coffee house for some chocolate milk and a donut.
Even without fenders, long dropouts make getting an inflated 32mm tire in and out a pain.With hardware on hand, the locknut was too close to the tire, so I added the second spacer on the other side of the bridge.
