This weekend I celebrated my Dad with something I did not even knew existed- a walk over the Hudson River. He’s a very outdoorsy type so I knew it was something he really wanted to do.
Here are just a few pictures I snapped with my phone:
I was most interested in learning about what The Walkway Over the Hudson was about. Formerly the Poughkeepsie-Highland Railroad Bridge, it used to be used as a railroad as well as carried troops that were being shipped overseas during World War II. Kind of fitting since my day is currently a First Class Sargent in the Army National Guard.
The walkway is now a cool 212 feet above the Hudson and 1.28 miles long. So, in the 90 degree heat we experienced yesterday, I’d say I got my workout in for the day. And, as always, I wanted to take home every pup I saw walking. (It’s a problem really.)
Props to my Dad for picking out a new spot to explore and enjoy the beautiful summer weather here in New England.
Happy Father’s Day to all of the Dads, Stepdads, and Grandfathers out there!
