    Every fall this family that lives off of route 32 in New Paltz, holds a huge barn sale. This barn sale unlike other barn sales in the area is very unique. Sure it offers the usual barn sale garb of people's unwanted items. It also hosts a collection of nearly 40 scarecrows, each one different from the next. When Patrick and I stopped here a couple of years back, we were pleasantly surprised and over joyed with the scare crows. I am not sure which one was our favorite, but I really liked the Elvis and the Red Barron scarecrows. The people who run this barn sale also offer hay rides for a nominal fee, I believe it was $2 a person. I picked up a really cute tea cup and tea pot set for my mom while I was here along with some figurines for the little one. I'll keep an eye out for the signs and let you all know each year when the sale is going on. You should all stop by, you are bound to love what you see.

    If you want to feel like a local, bring your bike and stop off at The Bakery, located at 13a North Front Street for coffee and pastry. It's a hot-spot for the biking crowd but an excellent bakery either way. Website is
