Red Hook

After a late dinner in Astoria with Art and Shirley (and a very crazy woman who yelled at us, which resulted in dessert on the house at the lovely restaurant), we headed to Flushing for lunch with Patrick and Yeye and Nainai. I should note that it was not until we were in Chinatown that we go around to mentioning to Talia that her new school would be all in Mandarin. So far, so good.

After lunch we headed to Red Hook for a quick visit before driving South again, but Red Hook is delightful and we stayed all afternoon. One shot from the drive which the kids loved – the very arch featured in “Knuffle Bunny Too.” I am not sure the kids realized that the book was set in Brooklyn:

And I insist on our annual family photo taken by random strangers in front of a painted door:

And of course, what visit to Red Hook would be complete without dropping by the ever-so-hipster Bourbon/Chocolate/Free Range Chicken factory …

Does this doorstep look familiar?

And since it was so late we decided to stay for a very surprisingly elegant dinner at Fairway. We sat on the patio overlooking the East River Ferry and enjoyed the sunset.

And then we scooted back to DC …
