last sunday

Before 
ToonMan and I took our walk 
I popped over to the GreenFlea to get some tea 
on 
the 
way


I snapped a game of pick up in the school yard 
families at the swings


kids playing on the slide and jungle gym


In Riverside Park we strolled 
on past our usual turning back place 
and 
found


someone walked for hemophilia on Christopher's Crew


a pull off/call me about Art of the Garden
and a staircase down to the highway 


couples reading on a sunny bench


playing with pets and smart phones


communing with nature and the internet
a modern day Sir Isaac


but
 this 
was 
my favorite find on the walk 
back down Riverside Drive 
I spied
not on the curb side
but 
in the park!


Old No 12 just hanging
waiting for the next dog




visit Summer Stock Sunday and see what other bloggers did

  3. Oooh...torn between the stairs down to the highway and the older couple sitting and reading. They're sitting so close together! You know there's a lifetime of stories there.

    Thanks for sharing your walk!

  4. I hope a dog showed up so No 12's wait was not for naught!

    Love how everyone is out and about in NYC. Always something going on.

  5. Wonderful tour - my favorite is the staircase. Wooo! My mother used to take me to the park by Riverside Drive when I was in a baby carriage. I don't remember.

  16. Your summer photos were so enjoyable! It is certainly great to see what others are seeing and it widens the summer experience. Sir Isaac...is that an Apple he's typing on? Wouldn't the original Sir Isaac have loved access to today's technology!
