Field trip to Beacon
Spent the morning on the banks of the Hudson River in Beacon, NY. It's an old town with an interesting history going back to the Revolutionary War - it's a railroad town, a port town, and is undergoing a bit of a renaissance after years of decline. Now it's filled with artists and galleries, and the very fine Dia:Beacon museum of contemporary art. Today's trip was for a road race, the Denning's Point 5K. I wrote more about the experience here.
