October 13 – the adventure begins!

All Aboard!  We boarded Amtrak at about 5:30 am for a 6:00 am departure … boy were we moving slowly.

We found four seats in the Snack Car so we were able to sit together, knit and visit.  I don’t think any of us had gotten our cameras out yet, so no photos this early on.  I did pull mine out when we hit Philadelphia b/c I knew Chris would enjoy seeing the station sign photos (he used to go there a lot).

sponsored by Wells Fargo (why won't they leave me alone?)

It was about noon when we reached Penn Station in NYC so we each took off in search of food … we did not have much time and ended up getting sandwiches at the same little restaurant, Zaro’s.

Here’s a photo of my panini – it was huge!

After our quick bites, everyone decided to check in using the local wifi.

See no, hear no, speak no?

Two drizzly hours later, we rolled into Rhinecliff station, taxied to the rental car store, then hit the grocery store for some provisions.  Excited and a little tuckered from the trip, we got settled into the cool house our Organizer located for us, knit some, Raveleried some and generally made plans for Friday and, more importantly, Festival Weekend.
