You know, I’ve always considered myself a somewhat boring person yet looking back on the pages of this blog – especially the ones I’ve written this summer, it seems like I’m the constant traveller.
I’m really not, you know.
But here I go again.
On Sunday, I got up super early and was on the road at 6, headed to New York City to meet friends that were coming in from both CT and Philadelphia. I met my friend, Daryl, and we headed out for breakfast at Zabar’s.
We picked up bagels with lox and cream cheese and some really good coffee at the restaurant on her corner.
Then we walked around a little bit before the others arrived.
It was still quite early, and I saw this city worker watering the plants in the median. I didn’t know they did that. I thought it was pretty interesting.
Daryl and I also took a short walk in Riverside Park, which is across the street from where she lives. She also lent me her kit lens to use for the day, the 18-105mm. We both have similar Nikon cameras.
Standing in the park and looking west across the Hudson River, toward New Jersey.
Lauren wouldn’t turn around.
We went to a flea market with lots of cool stuff.
There was so much to look at while we were browsing and killing time while we waited for our table reservation at a nearby restaurant.
Columbus and 81st. There’s Ann!
Reena and I could be sisters.
We walked along, admiring the homes in the Upper West Side.
The plants at this place were stunning. And there are actually grapes on that vine. Maybe you can click to embiggen.
It was a nice day but we were beginning to get pretty steamy with the heat. I believe we were all wishing that the AC would be on full blast at the restaurant.
And it was.
More on NYC coming up this week.

I want to thank you for your comments the other day. I’m still reading them and enjoying your answers to the travelling questions. I’m going to remember that I’m doing this blog for me and there’s no pressure except what I put on myself. Sometimes I do wonder if it’s worth it, but then I get over it because I know it is. I may cut back a bit but I’m not going anywhere yet.
Until then, my friends . . .
