New York City


I had the best day. Starting with train travel which right up there with ferry is my favorite type of travel.
We headed into New York and ended up in Penn station transferring to the subway getting off on 14th street. We ended up in a shop that had lots of skulls, and wonderful trinkets. Next on the same stretch was an old bookstore where Mark found a 2007 Swarovski hard cover bridal book, with a lot of inspiration.
Next we met Jean Power and boyfriend for a delightful meal at Fig and Olive in the restored meat packing district. Being a creature of habit and having eaten at the LA location recently I had the tuna carpaccio which was beautifully prepared and presented.
After an excellent lunch we took a walk on the High Line. it was totally magical and I marveled at the folks who have that kind of vision and the fortitude to make it happen.

And the pose




And the shadows




And the group




An excellent day, followed by a cozy evening, cocktails and dinner out in the local town where we are staying.
Tomorrow the Macy's day parade, a first for me. Then turkey sandwiches with cranberry sauce and stuffing.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!

I go up to NYC with our beadwork all the time, as it has been carried by many museums in the area. I'd love to schedule a return visit whenever you are going to be there... and a good friend of mine does the Macy's Day parade music! I live in North Carolina where I see you have visited too. Small world!

Yours truly, Catherine Todd
