and a visit to Poestenkill
Some more pictures of our trip up north this past summer. These were taken in the area around Mrs. Doohickie's parents' home.
First, this is the church that Mrs. Doohickie went to when she was growing up:
The church celebrated its 175th anniversary a few years ago.
Traveling south from there and looking west you can see the rolling countryside that rolls on down to the Hudson River.
A nice little country road that meanders around...
And eventually comes into the Town of Poestenkill. Poestenkill is named for Poesten Kill (I think "kill" is Dutch for "creek").
Looking east and west from the bridge is a charming little creek.
Beside the creek is their library and town hall.
Driving back I pass the Evengelical Lutheran Church,
And as I leave town, I stop to visit some of the folks who won't leave town, ever again.
