Catskill Marina

Great $2.50 breakfast

Reminiscent of Norfolk, Virginia, with its mermaid statues around the city, Catskill has cat statues on almost every street corner.  It is an annual fund raiser for numerous local nonprofit groups.  The cats are designed and decorated by local artists.  They remain on the streets for the summer and are auctioned off in the fall.  
It was a fun stop, and we had an excellent dinner at La Conca D’Oro (Italian for the golden bay).  The head chef is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, and it was evident in the meals.  They were outstanding!
