All Hallow's Eve

I love Halloween. The colors, the smells, the crisp bite to the air.

What's more Halloweeny than a headless horseman lurking in the graveyard of the Old Dutch Church in Sleepy Hollow?

I can't think of a thing. Only needed Ichabod Crane to emerge from the shadows to be complete.

We went to Sleepy Hollow to hike today in Rockefeller State Park. It was gorgeous and sunny (but brisk). We walked/hiked about 5 miles through the woodsy lanes, surprising a couple of wild turkeys and one young deer.

At one point, when the B/F told me he planned to make spaghetti for dinner, I began to jog (got to make room for those carbs). Sadly, I can jog at about the pace the much taller B/F walks. I'm definitely a plodder.

But it was fun to plod along side him for a mile or so. Great day. I leave you with these photos. Enjoy!


  1. Plodding works LOL! I am the same way. I do not look sleek or speedy when I run like my husband does. I am sort of a shuffler, but it gets done.

  2. Those are some very nice picts! And speed doesn't really matter does it? (unless you are talking about racing...)

  3. Great pics! I am a slow runner too, but there is almost nothing that feels as good as how I feel after I have finished my run...:-)

  4. sounds like a fun time! Add to that the fact that you got 5 miles of movement in, and I'd say that's a success!
