Last night we camped at the historic Ice House in Newton Hook. While camping, we enjoyed a sunset swim and dry night under the stars.
We set out in the morning on our path to Albany. Our journey consisted of roller coaster like twist, turns, and hills. We stopped halfway for a snack and to refill our bottles at Schodack Island State Park. We also stopped at a farm stand and enjoyed fresh peaches and zucchini bread.
In Albany we took a tour of the magnificent New York State Capital Building. Then we walked across the Albany Mall to the Observation Floor in a nearby skyscraper. Our day was concluded with luxurious beds, showers, and a pool at the Albany Holiday Inn Express.
