and then we went to ALBANY RURAL CEMETERY and drove around and found President Grover Clevelands grave. We had a nice afternoon. I think the self guided tour of the church was the highlight. On the way to our lodging we saw a huge old abandoned factory, I think part of the name is FIRST PRIZE, and we stopped, but there was too much surrounding activity for us to even try to enter it. (Peggy had seen pictures posted by urban explorers on the internet).
There was a bit of a mix up in the room they gave us at THE RAMADA (only one bed), but they quickly remedied that for us, and we immediately headed to Troy to have supper at DINOSAUR BARBEQUE. I had heard about it on the Travel Channel and wanted to try it. It was worth the 12 minute drive and we enjoyed our meal. After eating, we spent about ten minutes driving around downtown Troy. It has a HUGE downtown area, lots of old buildings and some vacant storefronts.
Tuesday morning, we enjoyed the free buffet breakfast provided by the Ramada and then headed to the capital building for LEGISLATIVE DAY. The main speaker was fantastic. She survived a saline solution abortion in l977. She is a great public speaker and told her story well.
