IBM Executive Conference Center

Tucson and Palisades, New York...

FROM NEW YORK

Here are some photos taken today (Apr 26) from my business trip to Palisades, New York.  As you can see, spring is in the air now, and nature is truly beautiful.  But first, a few shots from our weekend visit to Tucson to drive around and have dinner with Kate...

Tucson...

Palisades, New York...

All of the above shots were taken from and around the IBM executive conference center early morning (before 8AM).

The above two pictures of an old-fashioned IBM truck, are displayed on the third floor of the conference center (don't ask me how they got them in...)  :-)  The conference center is full of such historical and antique pieces, as are the halls that lead to individual (hotel) rooms.

This is now an afternoon shot of the entrance to the conference center taken around 6PM.  All of the photos that follow were shot at about the same time, during a walk through the surrounding woods that I had taken.

One of the two "resident swans"...

And again, the same swan from a higher level...

Here are now Mr. and Mrs. swan posing together...  :-)

And a close-up, too...

And one stage, Mr. Swan decided to take a walk for me, up the hill toward the conference rooms.

Yellow and white tulips are the only flowers in bloom at this early springtime.

Not to be left out or out done by the flora and the fauna, here are the IBM fish... the pond is stocked with tons of them.
