visiting eleanor


After being beautified™ at Salon AKS 
Saturday afternoon 
 I joined Toonman on a walk
 down 
Riverside Drive



 He with the FLIP 
 me and my Point/Shoot. 

the path splits 
you can go to the Boat Basin
down the path
under the overpass


or 
past the basketball courts


past the promenade 
with its 
benches and checkerboards


the path splits
again


 one way goes to the dog run
we choose the other fork
where this water fountain 
has a sweet dedication


the first lilacs I've seen this season


sparrow in a tree


and 
a beautiful statue of
Eleanor Roosevelt



at
72nd Street



On the walk back 
we stopped in at my sister's 
(aka SILESQ)
she gave me these 


the $$ went to the breast cancer site
thanks, SILESQ!
they fit!

  1. What a nice stroll, seeing the lilacs made me smile, I love lilacs. How sweet is that monument to Wolfgang Buchner. He must have been special. Wonder what Eleanor is pondering..

  2. I enjoyed the stroll with you. When he passes MWM wants me to organise a bench bearing a plaque with his name on it at the railway station because he loves trains so much.

  5. What a lovely scenic stroll. It was nice to tag along. I love lilacs...could smell them all day. And the dedication plaque made me smile, especially after visiting my kitty in the hospital this morning. Thanks for sharing your walk with Toonman.
