Good eating on Beekman Street

The HH (Handsome Husband) and I like the restaurants on Beekman Street in Saratoga Springs. Last night we ate at the Beekman Street Bistro (see recent Metroland review)
I especially like the chef's use of fresh, locally produced foods and that there are always some unusual items on the menu. The photo shows my dessert: a goat cheese custard with plum soup. Lovely!
While you're on Beekman Street, also check out The Local Pub and Teahouse and Gotchya's.

Sunday in Saratoga

The Handsome Husband and I took advantage of a quiet Sunday to walk the dogs in Saratoga Spa State Park yesterday. The Geyser Creek trail offers the unusual Island Spouter and Orenda Spring. These both deposit minerals creating strange-looking tufa (porous calcite rock) which fossilizes leaves and debris as the deposits grow.
The dogs liked this walk because they got to cool their toes in the creek.
