New York State Museum in Albany, NY: day trip with Peggy June 11, 2013

Peg and I set out early this morning for Albany.  We were able to spend a few minutes at the NYS Museum earlier this year when we went to LEGISLATIVE DAY, and we had decided we really needed to return and see the whole thing.  Today was the day.

Our first stop was at the 1-88 Exit near Schoharie where we changed from jeans into capris and I purchased a sub from Subway.  Our next stop was where we parked in Albany.  As we walked through the capital bldg. I stopped to take this picture:   There was an anti-gun control rally going on, so we went to that for a few minutes first. The posters and signs were interesting, here is an example:  

Then we went to the museum.  We were there for several hours.  It is one of the best large museums I have ever been to.  I particularly liked the Herschel Carousel on the fourth floor: 

On the way back to Oneonta, we stopped in Cobleskill and went to a Super Walmart for a few items.  We checked out the restaurant RUBBIN BUTTS, but it did not appeal to us, so we had supper at RED APPLE BUFFET, which is really  a Chinese buffet.  It was very good.
