In White Plains for a friend's wedding, I arrived at my hotel a few minutes to midnight, tired and weary from an all-day airline adventure that included mechanical breakdowns and delays.
I love The Ritz -Carlton brand as you might have guessed by my posts, but on this dreary, rainy night it was such a comfort to prepare a cup of tea in my suite, check emails and later slip between the pressed sheets and drift off to dreamland.
Everything was brighter the next morning as the sun rose. I was in the center of the city of White Plains, in beautiful Westchester County. I decided to have a spa treatment and some breakfast at the hotel and see what the day had in store for me. I could walk to the train station and in 30 minutes be in New York City or get a car to explore the charming little villages like Brewster that dot the countryside along with the impressive estates. I chose the countryside and had an absolutely beautiful day. And yes the wedding was grand too.
