Time to post - a New York adventure

We've been away, and what a fun time we had.  8 very full days in New York.  We walked and walked and walked.  We have seen so many sights, at all levels.  Pedalled a citi-bike (great way to get about).  Met with friends.  Rode a train. Ate cheesecake, deli sandwiches and pancakes, but no pizza or street meat. I took just over a thousand photographs, so choosing what to share will be so hard.  Had a wonderful time.

Our village seems very quiet after the hassle and bustle of a big city, but it's good to be home.

So what to share.  We went to the Lion Brand Store, but I will save that for another post, along with what I bought.  We aren't shoppers so apart for some jeans for Peter, yarn for me, and gifts for the grandkids, that was the extent of our shopping.  In fact we only went to Macy's to get out of the rain!!

I guess the best way to share the photos is to give you a few from each day/venue

Friday - Highline

Little Italy

Saturday - Brooklyn Flea

Sunday USS Intrepid

taken on a sunny day

Sunday afternoon - Natural History Museum

Monday - Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island - Citi Bike Day

Brooklyn Bridge

 9/11 Memorial

Chelsea Market

Tuesday - Empire State Building - day and night

also Tuesday - Eastside Walk

Wednesday - Top of the Rock, then it RAINED

Thursday - Central Park

Friday am - Hudson River Walk leading to Riverside Walk

So that's just a taste of our New York Adventure.  We saw so much more but this post is long enough.  A big thank you to Joan, Kathy and Mike for taking the time to visit us and share some of the experiences.  It was fun and so lovely to see you all.  I wish we had had more time xx


  1. It looks like you had a wonderful experience! I can't believe how much you packed into your time there. There's always something very nice about returning home to a routine and one's own bed after being away though, isn't there?

    1. Very true, nothing like your own bed!! We did lots more but felt the post was getting a bit long!

  2. Wish it could have been longer as well!
    But so Happy to see you and so happy to have a few hours in my city of love.

    1. Btw Peter says we walked 9 miles on Friday, imagine how much further we would have got if we hadn't been talking!!

  3. Such wonderful pictures. You obviously had a stupendous time while you were there. So much to see in 10 days but you seemed to have managed a good lot of it. Did you manage to go to Macy's? Looking forward to seeing more pictures and more narrative about your visit.
