You know you’re in the Hudson Valley when you’re driving on Route 9D. You catch little glimpses of the river through the trees. You also come across adorable little shops like the Garrison Market.
I was headed back home by the time I saw it, so I didn’t buy anything but a water. But I got these snaps. If I lived ’round here, I’d be stopping often.
Also, while in Beacon earlier in the day, I popped into this little cafe called Homespun Foods. They didn’t have a to-go menu and I can’t find a Web site, so I don’t have a full report, but they offer sandwiches and salads, and they have a very nice selection of cheeses to buy. There’s also a darling garden in the back.
