Summer gypsy trip
AUGUST 7, 2007
I have had the fortune of taking a nice lengthy trip out east starting in Maine on a Bleck family reunion from July 21 to July 28th and then spending the rest of the trip traveling around with my youngest daughter Ana. We decided to visit art museums and good friends along the way including fellow Drawger, Laura Levine. We had a blast shopping at her shop in the Catskills, "The Mystery Spot". From Bath, Maine we headed to Mass MOCA and caught an interesting show called "The Believers"-13 acres of art museum in North Adams, MA and worth the trip. Mass MOCA is housed in an old mill and the scale is enormous for the exhibitions. Next onto The Norman Rockwell Museum, Shakespere theatre in the Berkshires and onto Laura's neck of the woods the following day. Laura suggested a great place to stay at "Kate's Meadow" owned and decorated by Kate Piersons from the B-52's and lots of stuff from Laura's "The Mystery Shop". Thanks Laura for showing me a good time, fantastic breakfeast at ??? (help me out) and the experience of your shop. Here are a few pics from the trip so far.
Our Tiki hut down by the river. It is definately a camping experience, no cell phone, no internet but a great place to chill and watch old movies and sketch the scenery.
I have to say one could spend an entire day digging there and she gave us a great discount...perhaps it was a Drawger discount day. Ana was in resale heaven anyway.
This 10 day trip included a day at the "Mystery Shop", Laura Levines infamous shop in the Catskills. Ana loving every minute.
I will add more on the trip soon which includes stops at Olana on the Hudson, a special 18th Century garden, the Florence Griswald museum, the New Britain museum, Yales Britain museum of art and more.
Our Tiki hut, definately a camping experience and okay for short women like us..one of the motels rooms might be better for anyone over 5'6". I really admire the design details of an Airstream.
