Forget your feet, dance!

This white Italian marble statue, known as “Barefoot Kate”, is of a semi-nude nymph testing the waters of the pool with her toe. It was carved by sculptor Antonia Galli in the mid-19th century and installed within the Vanderbilt garden sometime between 1904 and 1910.

Ever hear of the Red Apple Rest? Before the New York State Thruway was built, the travel time from New York City to the Catskill Mountains was often four or five hours, especially during weekends. The Red Apple Rest, located almost halfway, became a major roadside stopping place.

Driving around where I live, you’ll be sure to see a ton of abandoned farm buildings. Wish I wasn’t on crutches, this could have been fun to explore. Oh well, another time.

"And the only thing we know

Is it's gettin' dark, and we'd better go

And the only thing we see

Are the despairs of the day

And if you're too tired

Go to sleep my brothers, I

And if you're too tired

Go to sleep my brothers, I'm all right to drive”
