basket vendor and I knew I found the thing I had to have. It was harder than I thought to get one, though. As soon as they hit the ground they were snatched up. People had armfuls of them but I did manage to get this one. I carried it around for the rest of the day filling it up with stuff and I loved it. I can see why they are so popular. I won't be attending anymore festivals without it.
Cottages on the Hudson. I let The Mister help me pick the color out and now that I look at it, I see the Miami Dolphin team colors which happen to be his favorite team. Hmmm....
Persimmon Tree Farms.
One of my favorite things about Rhinebeck is the way it smells. The food choices are amazing but the lines are ridiculous. All I had to eat all day was this dried out pretzel and some maple candy. I also had a few sips of The Mister's beer. If I ever go again, I am hitting the beer tent first. That way I just may have a better time.
The day wasn't a total bust. I did put a lot of mileage on the socks I brought along to knit but I've decided that this particular fest is too overwhelming for me. I think I'll be sticking to those below the Mason Dixon Line from now on. If you are looking for inspiration, Rhinebeck is the place to be but if you are looking to shop, come to Maryland in May. See you there!
