Train Ride

Jamie and I took a day trip up to Old Forge on Saturday. It takes about three hours to drive there from our house, so we left early in the morning. Allen has been working at a camp up in the Adirondacks and he had Saturday off, so he met up with us. We were able to spend the day together. Allen is recovering from an infection and is generally exhausted from working at the camp, so he didn't want to do anything too strenuous. Therefore we did not go hiking, which is what we usually do. Instead, we took a scenic train ride, walked around Old Forge and then went to The Strand to see the movie Dunkirk. It was really good. I highly recommend it. The story is based on actual events during World War 2. We all enjoy history.

After we saw the movie, we went and ate at the Sisters Bistro. Jamie and I discovered that restaurant two summers ago and it has become a favorite. This was our third summer taking a day trip to Old Forge and our third time eating at this place. I highly recommend it. It was delicious!

Sometimes I wish I were a bit more like my sister, Martha...who totes her camera everywhere and documents everything so beautifully. I'm lucky if I remember to pull out my phone and take pictures at all. This is one of the few I took and it's not all that great.

We had a wonderful day. It was so nice to see Allen.

That sounds like fun. Maybe one day I'll go on a train ride too.
