Wonderful Wednesday

Wonderful Wednesday

So what do you do on the last full day of holidays? You continue having fun and continue enjoying the holidays and that is exactly what we did today. We came here with a list of places to go and things to do in New York City and we have gradually whittled them down to […]

Terrific Tuesday

Terrific Tuesday

Oh this was just a superlative day. We walked our feet into near oblivion We tripped around on the Subway We sailed a ferry We did more shopping … and I answered my own coffee question from yesterday because we found great coffee that even tastes like real cofnd we found it TWICE in  one […]

Monday in the Big Apple

Monday in the Big Apple

It was a Wednesday afternoon rail trip on the Amtrak that brought […]

With the fantasmagorical Tomie

Knowing that we were in the New England neck of the woods, an essential component of our trip to New York was a visit to my beautiful friend Tomie dePaola who I have known for yonks! And that is where we spent much of Monday. We arrived at Tomie’s abode around lunchtime after checking in […]

Scrummy Sunny Day
