Welcome to Everything Croton, a collection of all things Croton--our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools, our houses of worship--in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.
ANOTHER BANNER WINTER SUNDAY IN THE HUDSON VALLEY---NO SNOW--AND NOT AS COLD AS USUAL---but in the aftermath of one wicked windy and rainy 24 hours, it was time to look for eagles and get some errands done as well...click on the photos and links....
BUT FIRST....TAKE-OUT FROM THE CROTON MINI DELI...an amazing Bacon, Egg and Cheese Sandwich to start the day off right...
Then off to Croton Point Park, greener than we are used to seeing at this time of year---and happy to report that there was minimal storm damage as far as we could tell.
Didn't spot any eagles this time--although there have been quite a few in recent weeks---see photos at the Croton Point Nature Center FB page here.
We took a quick drive to Verplank instead and had better luck at the Cortlandt Veterans Park.
It seems particularly fitting that we can generally can find a mature eagle in what appears to be a favorite tree adjacent to the American flag and monument.
Time for errands and with that, we headed for DeCicco & Sons in Millwood.
We've been hearing about this place for years and they did not disappoint. Spotless, well organized, with high quality produce--including beautiful heirloom tomatoes---hard to find cheeses, Artisan breads, chutneys and more. Friendly, knowledgeable staff too--and a well-curated seafood and meat section.
Outstanding house-made guacamole too.
And they also stock Urban Roots, Veggie Side Kits---check that out here.
And Millwood is only one of their many locations.

ALL AND ALL, ANOTHER BANNER WINTER SUNDAY IN THE HUDSON VALLEY.....
p.s. We picked up an order of Deviled Eggs from Croton's own Giovanni's this afternoon---the best we have had in years--with just enough kick. And we'll be ordering them again.
