The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me; Your love, O Lord, endures forever ~ do not abandon the works of Your hands. Psalms 138:8

Vacation, Part One, NYC

Our holiday started with five days spent in the Big Apple.....what a great time we had!! I have never really desired to see New York, but since spending time there...I just LOVE it! We met our Ottawa friends Joan and Rick, and had a busy yet relaxing time together.

It was an absolutely gorgeous evening our first night there so Bob and I walked from our hotel, The Roosevelt at 45th and Madison, to Time Square just taking in the sights and sounds of the city. We went up to the Empire State Building after midnight to avoid the crowds...the city sparkled, the moon was magical!

The next morning we met Joan and Rick and went to Central Park...had a relaxing coffee and danish, then rented bikes and toured around the you can see we had a stunning day...just perfect. Before we left I had made reservations at the Boathouse in Central Park for was elegant and very New York.....terrific experience!

I just love architecture...and I absolutely overdosed on it in NYC....Art deco everywhere, and so well looked after. Although the Empire State Building is very well known, I think I prefer the Chrysler Building for it's beauty.
