We headed up the Hudson - our first stop was Van Vortland Manor - Croton on Hudson - a country estate manor of the Revolutionary War era - 18 century -quite small really but a nice place to start with 2 old women sitting on the veranda doing 18 century stuff - all dressed up - nice gardens - though a tad on the small side - saw our first wild deer on the outskirts of the estate.
After we headed for Sleepy Hollows found a nice lake before using the Tom Tom provided by Joan - not very sleepy and no headless horses to be seen - except in the souvenir shops.

At last we were off to the Big Apple, the taxi, the bus and the flight went all to plan, we arrived in Newark where Joan - Suri's friend ( and now my friend) was there to greet us, but before that we had to get through customs - never straight forward when entering the USA, but still after a bit of interrogation they let us through, having convinced the men with the tazers that we were here to help them rebuild their economy.
Joan was there waiting for us, I didn't recognise her and she me neither so amazingly we sat next to each other, until Suri returned from the restroom - as they are called here it here and she then recognised Joan - and me too, which was pretty good too.
It's quite a short journey from Newark to Midland Park where we are now based - where we met Joe, what a lovely area - lots of trees and the houses and gardens are picture book.
After a few drinks and lots of chatting - Zebedee said it's time for bed!
