Reflections of September

This is Veteran's Park, just around the corner from the Greenville Arms 1889 Inn. A lovely spot for a picnic lunch.

The weather was perfect and the surface of the pond was as smooth as glass.


Throughout the summer on various evenings local musicians will set up in the gazebo and play for a couple hours.

The library is the building in back of the gazebo and next to that is the All Arts Matter building, home to a number of exhibits and performance events.

A Watery and Windy Weekend!

The Greenville Arms 1889 Inn happens to be in Greene county, NY which was one of the hardest hit counties by hurricane Irene (aka "tropical storm"). However, we must be located in a charmed little corner because while we did lose power for about 3 hours and our little creek did overrun its banks for a while, by Sunday evening everything was back to normal. We feel extremely lucky.

During the storm we had a full house of inn guests and workshop students! Everyone stayed high and dry and were able to enjoy themselves in spite of the unwanted weather excitement!

This was our creek on Sunday afternoon.


And this was the creek on Monday morning.


I've posted more information and pictures of our experience on our workshops blog.

Some near by communities such as Windham, were not so lucky and our hearts go out to them as they work hard to rebuild. We hope you come up for a visit when these towns and the businesses reopen to support them as they get back to normal. Windham Mountain is still on schedule for a full winter skiing season!
