Daily Post: A Journey and A Guest

The journey and the guest were combined for me this past weekend- my husband and I took a short journey away from home for an overnight, which made us guests at a lovely bed and breakfast. Sometimes just driving a little over an hour away can feel like you have traveled hundreds more miles than you actually have. We left our suburban town in New Jersey and drove North to the Catskill region of New York, about an hour and a half away. The trees around us grew thicker, the mountains where in view everywhere we looked, and the sky was open and endless.DSCN7225


We visited the Woodstock Animal Rescue Farmleading us on a journey to a better understanding of how animals can be adversely affected by the conditions they are raised in. We visited a local lake where we took in more wonderful views from way atop one of the mountains we had driven by.

From there we drove to the bed and breakfast which was located on 20 acres of land, with 3 Scottish Highland Cows living on the premises.

With a knock on the door, we became guests, welcomed so warmly by the proprietors. They could not have been more accommodating, their friendliness shining through in their smiles.MichaelCarolineMurphyWe watched the sunset over their field, enjoying the quiet and peace that surrounded us.DSCN7084

At 8:30 the next morning I heard a whoosh from under the door and there lay this notebreakfastOutside the door was a basket which held our breakfast. Underneath the fruit were warm muffins and a scone.

I was filled with a feeling of happiness and contentment from both the journey we had taken and the hospitality accorded to us as guests. A perfect combination.

  1. Nice photos and beautiful area. I love when a B&B brings breakfast to your room instead of having to go down to their dining room. That doesn’t happen too often. Was the B&B in Woodstock also? That’s a very pretty area.
