A blog by a Canadian living in the US: to showcase my favourite finds and places here at Ft. Drum and in the surrounding area, in Upstate New York. You can visit my main tumblr account here: http://strawberryoverdose.tumblr.com/Questions and Queries
My Husband is currently stationed at Fort Drum, NY. Rin’s Reviews is going to serve as a blog where I can showcase and share all the beautiful things and places that I find. The hidden treasures, the best kept secrets, and the enchanting (both natural and man made) that fill my soul with joy and wonder. The places that transform living here from being just another post, to feeling like home or make me look forward to going out and exploring.
I’ve been at Fort Drum since May 2010, and my husband got there ahead of me in September 2009. But it was only just this past July, that we finally were able to get a vehicle. And so finally, we’re getting to explore and enjoy the area. There is so much to discover in beautiful, Upstate New York! And this is where I will share what we find.
Up until now, living here has often left me feeling isolated and trapped. Missing many of my favourite places, both where I’m from in Northern Ontario, and where my husband is from in NYC. There is a lot of rural communities and countryside around Fort Drum and things are far distances apart. Without a vehicle ‘til now, we weren’t able to see or do very much. But already in just a couple of months, we’ve found places that have helped me change my outlook about the area. Places that I look forward to visiting again and that fill me with happiness and peace when I’m there.
From finding a beautiful little beach, a harbor where my almost 3 year old can feed ducks, and a lovely little tea shop, I am starting to love living here at Fort Drum.
