Road Trip to Saratoga, Part III, Congress Park

As you can see, we had FABULOUS (eyes rolling) weather during our road trip to Saratoga.  On day 2, we decided to take a little walk through Congress Park.  This place is so beautiful.  I loved walking through their perfectly landscaped gardens and seeing their historic structures.  We paid tribute to our veterans and sniffed some pretty flowers.

You know what else they had which was pretty cool?  There were plaques all around the park, talking about the history behind it, and it was all written by the History Department of Skidmore College, which was right around the corner from here.  I just ate that up.  AND, everyone was walking their dog through here that morning.  Just a great time.

    Now that’s what we call a PARK! Water fountains, flowers, history and other dogs! Fantastic that you got to experience it all Finn.

    Wow, that is such a beautiful park and what a great tribute to all the veterans. Too bad about the weather – bet you would like to go back again when the sun is shining.
