I want to thank you, sharon, for letting folks know how wonderful it is here. Which I omitted! I need to add some information about Cantines Island. I realized I had only described the available lot. After 7 years of meeting every two weeks, we built and moved in just about 11 years ago. We started with 12 households, now have 17, and if the corner lot person is a member, that will be it for us. We do not have plans to expand and expand.

We have quite a bit of waterfront property, even an old boathouse. In, as Sharon beautifully described an incredibly gorgeous area, 100 miles North of NYC. We are on the Esopus, just before it joins the mighty Hudson River. The Clearwater docks around the corner for the Winter, and we are invited to monthly potlucks with the Winter Crew who work on this beautiful vessel. It is the boat that thanks to Pete Seeger, goes up and down this mighty River, offering nature education and song.

Anyway, I won't go on and on. If you are interested, please send me an e-mail! thanks, Ruth J. Hirsch

Meanwhile, it is gorgeous here as we approach Peak Leaf Peeker time.

For anyone who doesn't know Saugerties and the Hudson River Valley, it has the best Peak Leaf season I've ever seen. The river valley just has lots of wonderful trees. Other places look treeless by comparison.

If you are thinking of moving to New York State this is an excellent location. It's a smallish city in an interesting area, not far from rural areas with small towns, minor skiing, rock climbing, and New York City.

I used to drive from New York City to Albany very frequently. An odd piece of information is that coming south, there is a dotted line just above Saugerties where the weather changes. When there is a blizzard
in upstate, it changes at Saugerties. If it's raining, it stops there.

So this is a good location if you are looking for a place. (I'm sure it's a nice community too but I haven't been there.)
