M&I spent out second weekend outdoors. This past weekend we decided to check out the situation at our property upstate. We recently had some landscaping work done and we wanted to check it out as well as take a look at what was lurking in our storage locker. The original plan was to camp on the property. In a panic I decided I at least wanted access to a shower and plumbing so I booked a site for us at a local camp ground. Although the weather was hot and humid we had a great time. Since we didn’t have a huge agenda we decided to take it easy. After picking a few more items from the locker and getting a few camping items we set up our tent and got settled. We have a few places we tend towards while upstate and decided it would be a nice change of pace to try something new. We decided to try a place called the Bywater Bistro in Rosendale. It was fantastic! Good beers on tap, wonderful food (half portions available) and great atmosphere. Since it was raining when we got back to the campsite, we didn’t get to have a campfire, but there is always next time.
