Gorgeous day

Sunday was a gorgeous day & we took a long walk along the Hudson River. Our starting point was Ross Dock Park, located just north of the George Washington Bridge and at the foot of the Palisades Cliffs, which were saved in 1900 from destruction by the quarrying industry by tenacious members of the New Jersey State Federation of Women’s Clubs. The plaque, “Preserving the Palisades,” in the first photo tells the story of the women’s victory. The second photo explains why, I always stop to say, “Thank you, clubwomen!!!!!!!” (click on picture for a larger image)
