Memorial Day Weekend 2011

Posted: April 11th, 2012 | Filed under: Out Of Town

We were up in the Rhinebeck area for a wedding during Memorial Day 2011.

Market Street, with its requisite iconic wooden Indian and Doughboy:

The A.L. Stickle store on Market Street is hard to describe — other than totally awesome, that is. It’s a time capsule of sorts what with all those Revell model car kits (do you remember Revell model cars? do kids still sniff model glue?) and vintage display cases. I remember huge zipper displays in our local supermarket — what happened to all that stuff? I haven’t thought about some of these things in years. So wonderful . . .

We bought some herbs and various plants at the Rhinebeck Farmers Market for the backyard.

Mill Street and Montgomery Street both comprise U.S. 9 around Rhinebeck; one is U.S. 9 north of Market Street and the other is U.S. 9 south of Market Street. The Rhinebeck Reformed Church is on Mill Street, just past the Lions Club Eyeglass Drop Box:

The wedding was at Camp Rising Sun in Clinton.
