I've heard news from the East that the outlet mall is now a bit richer, thanks to a shopping spree by three unknown Westerners! Day two at the farm in upstate New York started with an early morning lesson by Amanda on Parker. After that the three drove to upstate New York to the Vanderbilt Mansion for a tour of opulence and history. As you can see in the photo sent for this blog, it's raining much harder than here. Clare said that if the rain would stop the colors would be stunning. Let's hope for better weather in Syracuse, their destination after a short plane ride in the morning.
