Albany Trip II

Sunday, June 8, 2008

Our second day trip to Albany was all about architecture. We saw several mansions and the first Shaker community in the United States. We ended the day with dinner at PF Chang's. My favorite restaurant! I thought that Shawn might be tired of eating at PF Chang's; we've been to several of them in many different cities. But Shawn is actually the one who suggested that we eat there. He must love me if he's willing to eat at my favorite restaurant in pretty much every city we visit :) The mansion pictured is the Ten Broeck Mansion, home of the oldest wine cellar in the US!

Historic Cherry Hill

The Shaker meeting house. The meeting house is basically a huge room. It didn't have much furniture or pews or chairs because the Shakers did a lot of dancing in their services. The name "Shakers" is derived from the violent shaking that they did during the services.

This was taken at the Shaker community. I think the building used to be a workshop for the Shakers. I saw the green door and I just had to take a picture!

The farmhouse at the Shaker community.

At the farmhouse, I saw baby turkeys for the first time. They're hard to see in this photo, but I thought they were adorable. So tiny and round!

I love how you can see the storm coming towards us.

Me in front of the green door. Green door, green shirt, and a green necklace. Very fitting since I love green!
