Highlights from the Sheep & Wool Festival

We lucked out, we had cool and sunny weather – perfect for being outdoors. A huge thank you to our drivers, Joan and Karna! We enjoyed the scenic route that Joan mapped out for us; driving along the country roads we saw sheep and cow grazing…so beautiful!  The foliage was amazing, bright gold and reds – just gorgeous!

The festival was larger than I imagined and it was bustling! The fairgrounds have beautiful mature trees that are bursting with Gold leaves. There was a lot of seating area which was nice, there were also large picnic tables near the food area. The fiber was plentiful, stunning color, bags of fleece, handmade baskets, accessories in row after row of  pavilions. The food was standard festival goods but then we spotted “Aba’s Falafels” – certainly didn’t mind the long line!

My favorite part was with the animals. We got up-close with Sheep, Lamas, Alpacas – just amazing!!! A few of us were in the middle of the ‘parade’ of Lamas & Alpaca’s.  We saw Sheep shearing which was cool. We meet the 8 mo. old black one named Shadow, it was his first showing. I also saw a few bunnies and a beautiful large Angora bunny.

The pics you see of a gathering of people on a hill blanketed in gold leaves happens to be Raverly members who gather for a one huge photo-op. Me and Ann managed to get close enough to the front for the pic too.

Well, by 4 p.m. I was pooped!! I understand why so many attend both days…perhaps next year!!

Day trip to Cold Spring, this Friday!!

OK ladies, this Friday 9/13, we’ll meet at the Tarrytown Train station at 11:30 a.m. We’re allowing extra time to get train tickets, and parking pass.

Regarding parking at Tarrytown at the train station here is what we found out. Day long parking is $10 per car. You MUST buy a “day pass” at the Police dept/site…directly across the Tarrytown train station, on Franklin St. (as you drive down Franklin it is on your immediate right hand side as you come down that hill, just before the train station. Go into the side door that says ‘Police’ and buy a day pass for $10, >> MUST HAVE EXACT CHANGE!!<< Be sure to ask for driving directions to the parking area. It is over an overpass which loops you around to the other side of the tracks down to an open parking area.

Carpool peeps should pool money together to pay for the parking pass. Thank you to the drivers!

Another option a few of us are going to do is hop on the Tappan Zee Express bus that takes you directly in front of the Tarrytown train station. We’ll meet at 11:00 am. downtown, on Martine Ave /off Court St (on the side of 7-11) bus stops in the center of the block.

Anyone driving in can park at the Galleria Mall. and walk out through Macy’s (on Martine Ave & Court St).

I will have my phone, feel free to call/text, if needed.

The weather is suppose to be gorgeous, yay!! Bring your WIPS!!
