Escape from NYC - Find Peace in Woodstock

I love New York City, but sometimes the stress of the daily grind puts me at the end of my twine - and I have a lengthy twine! 

I jump in my car and battle a vast array of drivers who don't understand that the lines on road separting the lanes are there for a reason.  Even with all of the craziness...I start to feel the stress slip away each minute I am sitting bumper to bumper on the FDR.  I listen to the radio through the crackling - my antennae was stolen on my quiet Brooklyn block - and let the horn blasts from surrounding cars roll off my back. 

I am ESCAPING!  I stop for gas on the Palisades Parkway after crossing the GWB - NJ gas tax is cheaper and I love that!  I've got a little less than 2 hours before I reach my destination and am daydreaming of the jasmine smells that will fill the air.  I'm off the NYS Thruway and in the home stretch now.

I stop for some groceries at Hurley Ridge Market and then for a couple of my favorite things at Sunfrost Market on Route 212.  One more mile and I'm home.  Sure there are lots of things to do in Woodstock, but right now I am going to listen to the wind and rain all weekend. 

That's why I Escape to Woodstock!

Peace, love and escapism!

Ha! Love this post - I bought a place in Woodstock this spring - it is the second best thing (next to marrying my beloved) that I ever did. We vowed we would go every second weekend - but have been there every single weekend since buying. It's like going on vacation every week.
