We rented a car for the day to have lunch at Bocuse restaurant where the students of the CIA prepare and serve the food, and to make a visit to West Point. We arrived rather early for our lunch reservation and happened to notice that we were next to FDR’s home in Hyde Park. We stopped for a short visit and toured a part of the museum there. We did not have time to tour his home, but thought we might go back. (That didn’t happen as you will see from the next comments.)
Our lunch reservation at Bocuse was for 11:30, so off we went to the CIA. The setting for this school is on 170 acres that over look the Hudson River. it is so beautiful. I believe the original property was once a Jesuit school.
My morning did not begin well — awoke with severe nausea and as the time went along, my status was NOT improving. I have to guess that I am the ONLY person in the entire World who spent her entire lunch reservation in the ladies room with upper and lower GI issues!!!! What a bloody disappointment for me. The only thing I was able to consume was a glass of ginger ale. Nicely served, I might add!!! Hank, on the other hand, was not deterred by my malaise and enjoyed his lunch to the fullest!!!!!
Needless to say, we did not make it back to Roosevelt’s home nor to West Point. Bed was my friend for the rest of the day and night.!!!!! Hank ran the errands to provision the boat and found the ice supply for our departure the next day.
