It’s nearly 80 this after, and I have to tell it feels soooo good.
These old bones can’t take the cold weather anymore.
I’ve spent my morning and afternoon working on this project and that.
And of course, there were frequent breaks for e-mail and bloghopping.
Yesterday I watched Lars and the Real Girl. Talk about your unique plots. One day the very introverted Lars brings home the girl he met online. Here’s the thing she’s a life-size doll. On the advice of a physician every one goes along with the delusion. Every one is not only Lars’ family, but the entire population of his small community.
I’m not one for spoilers, so that’s all I’m saying here. You won’t regret renting it at your local DVD emporium.
You like the pic of the glasses. I took it Sunday when my friend J came to New York for the day.
We spent most of the 9 hours she was here walking.
The first part of our day was spent walking through Central Park.
I shot mating dance by the reservoir.
These two photos which I call Central Park Yogini also appear on my photoblog Photostroll.
We ended up on the Upper East Side, and boarded a subway for Astor Place.
That’s where I got the wild glasses you see at the beginning of this post.
We went strolled through St. Mark’s place, where we stopped for sushi.
Then it was on to Union Square to see what the artists had out for sale.
This the Beauty Bar. It’s an old time hair salon that some smart entrepreneur turned into a nightclub/bar. Cool, huh?
Next was the Lower East Side where we stopped for coffee and nibbles at the Cloister Cafe.
They have a lovely outdoor seating area with hookah bar.
After coffee we walked down to Houston Street, and headed for the glamour of SoHo.
We spotted this adorable fellow anxiously watching his human.
All this walking worked up our appetites. We decided on Italian – where else? Little Italy of course.
The freshly made focaccia bread they put on the table was so delicious you could make a meal out of it. I had Fettucine with Bolognese; J had the Alfredo.
Needless to even with all the calories we burned walking – we skipped dessert.
We walked back to Canal & Varick and caught the train to Times Square. J wanted to see the bright lights before she went home.
I actually posted these a couple of days ago, but what the heck here you go:
From there it was back uptown to the garage where we parked her car. The last thing you want to do in Manhattan is drive!
What a great day. There’s nothing I love more than showing people New York through my eyes.
My daughter’s birthday is coming up soon, and I’ll be heading out to Massachusetts to spend a day with her. She’s in the ‘burbs, but we will head into one of the nearby town for lunch and shopping.
It’s a rare thing for me to go out of the New York/New Jersey area.
And I will be taking a lot of pictures.
