I know most people don't celebrate Leap Day, but I think it should be a thing.  So, we decided to head out to Washington County,   and the town of Greenwich.    Washington County is on the NY border with Vermont and is home to some beautiful towns and villages. 

One thing to love about Greenwich is their town symbol.
It started off a bit rainy and cloudy today, but the sun broke thru and made for a beautiful day and for the last day of Meteorological Winter a balmy 45 degrees.
The business districts of our smaller towns are limited, but they still make for a nice afternoon.
Washington Square.
Why I love our smaller communities, random cozy benches nestled under a tree.
Or parked in front of a small business.
The beautiful Batten Kill.  It's a tributary to the Hudson River and it's mouth is in Easton and it flows through Vermont.
On our way back we stopped at Saratoga Apple in Schuylerville.
I know what you are thinking, an Apple Orchard open in February, but we do have a few that stay open year round.  And they just got approved for a Hard Cider license, which is the reason the others stay open year round. 
Behind the dormant apple trees is the Saratoga Monument.
The only downside to the day, it was a Monday and most smaller restaurants in the smaller towns are closed.  So we had to head back into Saratoga for lunch.  But we chose a favorite spot, Hatties Chicken Shack.
And of course you can't leave Hattie's with out taking home some authentic New Orleans Beignets.
Happy Leap Year Day and Happy Last Day of Meteorological Winter, bring on Spring.
