Bluffs along the Hudson River

Hyde Park is the home of the Culinary Institute of America (CIA), one of the best cooking schools in the nation.  The beautiful campus overlooking the Hudson River was formerly a Jesuit Seminary.  Our tour was conducted by one of the students.  It included samples of cookies baked by student chefs in the pastry area.  Yum!  We had dinner at American Bounty, one of the 5 restaurants on campus.   Along with Becky and Carlton, we were joined by Judy and Doug on Moonstruck.  They happened to be in the Hyde Park Marina when we docked there.  We enjoyed a wonderful dinner prepared by student chefs. 
A beautiful full moon completed a great evening.
