I've just returned from five fabulous days in New York. This was my very first trip to this fascinating city. I could have spent the entire time in the Metropolitan Museum, but I also got to see Wicked on Broadway, have dinner at Club 21, enjoy the view from The Empire State Building, visit the 9/11 Memorial, shop on 5th Avenue, and so much more.
We stayed at the Marriott Marquis Times Square. We arrived at night and as our taxi approached the hotel, it amazed me that all the lights made it seem like daytime. The highlight of the trip for me happened on Sunday morning. We went to mass at the beautiful St. Patrick's Cathedral and Cardinal Dolan was the celebrant. He is every bit as charismatic in real life as he appears on television.
My fused ankle managed the walking pretty well. My iPhone says I did 18,400 steps on Saturday. Granted they were small, slow steps, but hey much better than I expected. I had to have some of the pain causing hardware removed three weeks ago, and that has made such a difference!
Did I mention that it was really cold there?! I tagged along with my husband because he was going to a seminar. Next time, I would go in the spring or fall.
Now it's time to catch up on things.
Congratulations to Mami2jcn who won the Canvas Photo Print from Canvas Factory.
I have notified her by email and I'm sure she will enjoy a canvas print of her children.
