At long last, I went May 1st with my husband, first to visit Albany, then to Normans Kill. This wasn't a long trip (about three hours one way), it was just to a new place. Since I had posted many of my Ten Eyck / TenEyck names for Saturday Surname the same day, I thought it appropriate to finally make trip, which was a very full day for us.

View of Albany, and not a car in sight!
