Father and daughter

Film maker Richard Kroehling with his daughter Lina at their house on a hilltop overlooking other hilltops outside Cold Spring, New York. Lina is a biologist and artist. I first saw Richard at Dogwood, a pub in the neighboring town of Beacon. I thought what a distinguished looking man. His daughter was in the shadows but Caroline told me she would only add to the picture. She knew them from Facebook.

Richard's wife Laura makes very good coffee. Straight, strong, dark stuff, nothing artisan or fancy flavored. She also makes her own bread, the no-knead recipe from the Sullivan Street Bakery, Little Italy, NYC. 

Their house is one of the friendliest and warmest that I have visited in the Hudson Valley. I was going to leave the prints I gave them on the doorstep and scram, but they saw me coming. I accepted their invitation for coffee without hesitation.
