I remember my husband and I driving by the city last summer, on our way to Maine. We could see the skyline from the Jersey Tpk. and we both were wondering aloud how our son could live there. And now I understand. I love where he lives! It was a beautiful day and we walked all around the financial district right near his aparment and I'm sure I looked like a crazy tourist snapping pictures everywhere I went, but who cares! I can see why my son loves living there and I'm really happy for him.
We had lunch at a restaurant on Stone Street, a tiny cobblestone road lined with bistros and restaurants, all with tables in front of each one that took up all the room in the street. I'll be posting a little more about my visit later in the week. But here's just a couple of pictures of things I found interesting. Some were taken from the car window and others were taken while walking about.
Oh, and as an aside, I completed my goal for today which was to get an external hard drive. I've got a Maxtor one Touch 4 with 500 gb of space on sale at Staples right now for $99. Life is good again. Until tomorrow, my friends.
