weekend recappage

came home thursday evening
 looking forward
 to 
a relaxing but not slothful weekend 

friday
 i met a friend
 we went to riverside park

 i wanted to walk down 
to 
the wine bottle sculpture


 i had heard about
 in
 an area 
called clinton 
along the hudson river portion 
of 
the park 
that edges the river
 of the same name 
on
 the westside of manhattan

 however
 first 
we had to have lunch 

we opted
 for
 pier 1 cafe



 usually
 jam packed
 with
 new yorkers visiting the park
 on weekends
 it was practically deserted
 at 
12ish on friday


i had a burger 
my friend opted for chicken fingers

 in no rush
 we sat 
we ate 
we chatted 
then 
we walked
the skies were threatening 
but never let loose


 we stopped at all the art
 i have shown you in past posts 


along the way
 she got
 a shot


i was focusing on some dying but interesting flowers

saturday
 i had wanted to join a walk
across
 the george washington bridge 
 a visit
 to the little red lighthouse

my heavy lens was necessary 
my backs been a bit wonky
i decided a long walk schlepping a heavy lens was not in the cards

instead
toonman and i 
took
 a short walk uptown in the park
we missed an event
"unleashed"
not sure 
what it was about
 but
 the clean up was interesting



the skies
 were
 pretty amazing
 on 
our way back


sunday 
was spent beautifying

one evening i forget which we watched divergence 
it was a decent book but the movie was meh

not as active a weekend as i had hoped
what did you do?

  2. You have so many wonderful walks, I wish I could tag along without flying all the way across the country.

  3. "relaxing but not slothful" Like.
    I actually baked a freakin cake! It's been at least 20 years. I haven't tasted it yet but it looks pretty! Yay!

    I love the photo of you and the one of the skies :)

  4. Some very dramatic skies! The sculpture of the bottle looks rather big, to say the least.

  6. I started to watch Divergent last weekend when I was out of town, but fell asleep! Ooops. Great sky shot! and cool wine bottle. We were on the go all weekend long, so I suspect I'll be pretty lazy this week.

  7. Daryl, those skies are gorgeous. Love those big white clouds!

    The weekend? More of the same...sorting, cleaning, downsizing. Excavation began today.

    xo.

  9. Oh, I love the cloudy skies and views. Sounds as if you had a great weekend!

    My daughter was singing in a gospel concert so most of Sunday was spent on that...

  10. Amazing skies! R took a photo of our skies here in OXON and the photo looks very similar...except in our case it did rain. Good for the garden though. That bottle is pretty strange, but a cool concept. :D

  11. Always something fun going on in NYC! The mr and I are really overdue for a daytrip there....

    This weekend we returned from a week in Maine so you know what that meant...lots of laundry, food shopping, and cleaning out Sylvie.

  12. used to enjoy walking past and seeing the little red lighthouse under the G W ridge whenever I walked with my daughter to her workplace near the bridge, from 157th street. Think that was where they were living at the time..
