The Big Apple

Tuesday, July 21, 2009

We are back from a fantastic trip to New York and are finally shaking off a mighty case of jet lag.  

As always, our visit was crammed with family, activity, excitement, walking, more walking, and a little more walking.  And, as always, we didn't come close to seeing all the people we'd love to see or hit all the sights.  Such is New York - so much to do, see, love and so little time.  

Speaking of walking, I am the only person who could spend 6 hours a day wandering the city and still manage to gain weight.  When visiting, I feel compelled to sample as many of the local delicacies as possible, with nostalgia overriding any faint sense of restraint or urgent signals of fullness.   Attractive, I know, but with visits spaced at roughly eighteen month intervals, I have to get it while I can.  

One thing I can never get enough of is Central Park, my most favorite place.  

Following a month of non-stop rain, it was a cool, green oasis in the center of a teeming city...  

offering chances to commune with the local wildlife...

roll down a green lawn...

or stroll under shady canopies.  

More pictures to follow.... The top shot shows the view from our suite (!) at The Waldorf-Astoria, where CB took me to celebrate my birthday, in style.  The ensuite alone was bigger than the apartment we rented.  Very decadent!  


  1. Very jealous Kate! Would love to stay there. Hope you all had a fab time in NYC, I am sure you did.


We LOVE comments. Fire Away!
