Yesterday we went to the Vanderbilt Mansion in Hyde Park, NY. We were going to do the garden tour, but decided to take a look at the house first. Afterwards we were hot, tired and hungry so we just took a quick look at the garden – we’ll go back another day. For a Vanderbilt pile this one is quite modest. Afterwards we had a late lunch at Pho Max Vietnamese restaurant in Wappingers Falls. Recently opened. A good find.
