Driving up the Hudson River valley, the excitement began to build. Vacation! Yipee! Never mind that it is only a few days, there will be no chores to distract us from having a good time! An absolutely delicious lunch at Le Bouchon really does set us on our way. Even in the rain, I like the village of Rhinebeck – with a hardware store, a pharmacy, two wine shops, a bakery/café, a coffee/sweet shop, paper store, kitchen supply store, several restaurants and clothing stores. There’s no grocery store right in town, but almost everything else for daily life is readily available.
