I promise this is the last of the NYC pictures I'm going to
bore dazzle you with. Consider yourselves lucky that I'm not taking pictures of my yard instead or you would be subjected to pictures of dog crap...and mud.
|This is me at the Dakota (the apartment building where John Lennon was shot)....yes, I'm wearing sneakers...don't judge...my feet were really hurting.|
|John Lennon memorial in Central Park|
|The pond where you can rent boats in Central Park|
|Intricate gate at the Bethdesa Fountain in Central Park|
|More Central Park...it was seconds after this picture was taken that we looked at each other and said....we live in the woods...what are we doing in a park full of trees in the middle of NYC...I think our time can be better spent...so we left.|
|Not before I was nearly run over by one of these.....I said to Scott the night before this "I think the most dangerous part of NYC is nearly getting hit by bicyclists"....I had not considered horse and carriages...silly me|
|On our way home the magnolias were blooming in Maine.|
|We also had just enough time to visit my favorite pizza place in Portland Maine and as usual it did not disappoint.|
Another strange thing that happened on our trip (besides my 46 year old husband repeatedly getting asked for ID when I'm considerably younger....I know...get over it) was that people asked us if we were British. When I said "no, we're Canadian"....they said "your accent sounds British...but not quite as proper...a bit "woodsy"...thanks...I think?
