  5. A lovely, peaceful place pre-Sandy, Daryl. I don't want to know how it looks now.
    Haven't seen anything from the Chesapeake Bay gang, Janice and her children and parents. Have you?

    1. We're OK, everything's good here. We came out unscathed, nothing like what hit NJ and NYC. Thank you for thinking about us.

  14. I've been wondering how bad Central Park and the Highline have been hit by the storm. The power of Mother Nature is amazing and frightening to behold! Nice peaceful pic here:)

  15. The person with the hat on the dock adds nice interest to this.

  16. As everyone before me says...it is a beautiful shot. I fear how this area must look now. The news coverage here in the UK is extensive. Hopefully, a follow-up shot will share good news. (I like your remarks about replying to comments. Nicely put.)

  17. It all looks so peaceful. And I imagine it might look that way even now. Just that the in-between was pretty hairy. Hope you folks have got electricity and gas back in action.

  18. Visiting you from NaBloPoMo, I am doing it too in November! Beautiful photos! I love NYC, and it's just horrible to read or see the news with so much damage done to the city by the storm! Happy blogging!

  19. Love this shot and would like to be that man with the hat on. Well, I'd like to be that man if he were a woman and also pre-Sandy. This rambling comment brought to you by the need for sleep. So glad you came out on the other side of the storm OK.

  20. Beautiful shot! That traditional boat (blue trim - is that a blue maple leaf?) is gorgeous. Breaks my heart to see and hear about the beating the Big Apple's taken.Hope there are much brighter days ahead for all.
