Best time of year in the Hudson Valley

Kaitlyn outside Krause’s Chocolates.

Living in Brooklyn for so long, I always longed to be upstate in the Hudson Valley in the Fall.  There is no better time of year to be here.  The long hot humid days give way to the cool crisp Autumn air and your spirit feels renewed!

There are so many activities and great little towns to explore……..pumpkin patches, apple picking, hayrides, apple cider and fresh homemade donuts. It really doesn’t get any better.

One of our favorite places to visit is Krause’s Chocolates in Saugerties.  Voted best chocolate store in the Hudson Valley, their chocolates are coated so thick in rich chocolate, it’s worth a trip anytime!  And it won’t break your wallet!

My new camera

The pictures below were taken with my new camera.

As luck would have it, the day I decided to look online for a new camera, I had two professional photographers stay at our bed and breakfast.  When I asked each of them separately for advice on which camera I should purchase, they both answered the same:  Canon Powershot G12.  Saved me hours of looking online at reviews and making a decision on my own.

So below are pictures of our Hudson Valley bed and breakfast taken with my new camera. Not half bad for an amateur!
