Spent a wonderful evening with son , his wife, her daughter, and her daughter. Today , with my very best friend forever Nancy, her daughter, my daughter and her best friend Barbara. Now down in Ellsworth for the evening stoking the fires, watchin the birds and gettting the lobsters ready for the pot. So nice to be home for the holiday. Or, and two loafs of Tinderhearth bread to smuggle back to Florida. David will owe me for this one.

Statue of Liberty 2016

Statue of Liberty 2016 - 1-imp.jpg

This trip has been amazing! The Statue of Liberty , the decorated windows of some amazing stores, Empire State Building, riding the subway, walking the streets and down to Time Square. My memories of Time Square are much different than what I saw yesterday. I'm told the trash business moved further west. I didn't see one peep hole! Ice Skating in Rockefeller Center was and will always be my highlight! We didn't fall once, no broken bones, but lots of laughs. Off to MOMA today and The Plaza! Still very cold here but we're bearing up!

Another one bites the dust!

As one gets older they realize that all the things they had wanted to do but hadn't , needed attention soon or it would be too late. David and I have been doing this and today was a big one. I've been to NYC so many times over the years but had never taken the time to go out to Ellis Island or seen the Statue of Liberty. She was beautiful although it was very very cold and windy. Couldn't believe all the people in town doing the same thing. Took a subway out and back(big for me) and then had a nice lunch at The Oyster Bar. A wonderful , wonderful day so far and more to come.
