Sitting under a red umbrella, having a glass of wine in downtown Albany on Monday.
French jeans are very expensive, so we find good bargains here. And we found some sneakers on sale for much less money than we would have spent at home. Ken and I each got a new camera -- we had ordered them from Amazon prior to the trip -- and we're enjoying learning how to use them.
Last night some friends from Alabama came to town. They are traveling in the Northeast and decided to swing through Albany while we are here. We, they, and the friends we are staying with went out to a tavern out in Voorheesville for dinner Wednesday night. Smitty's (it's actually called Smith's Tavern) has been around since 1945, but there's been a restaurant on the site since 1901. They started serving their famous pizza in 1959. We had a great time, until they turned the volume way up on the jukebox and the country music started blaring.
