This Time Last Week (Day 6 of trip)

It was nice to relax this morning and not feel rushed. The only plans I had were shopping and meeting up with  Kathy from Bermudaonion for breakfast. We met at a cute little place and grabbed breakfast to go and sat in a little urban park and ate. I always love meeting up with Kathy and getting to talk to her. After that we went on the hunt in Time’s Square in search of the Naked Cowboy who I have yet to see. Nope we didn’t see him. We spent some time just sitting and talking which is so nice and then sadly Kathy had to leave to catch her plane back home.

I went back to the hotel and met up with Kim because we were going to do the bus tour of the city and I was super excited. What better way to see more of the city. We had so much fun hanging out and seeing the sights. I enjoyed my afternoon with Kim.

I won’t post all my pics (because I took alot) but I will share some of my favorite ones.

The Flatiron building. It was so hard to get a good shot of the building.

I was told this had something to do with 9/11. I think next time I would like to get off and look at it more.

For some reason we ended up getting off at Battery Park and I am so happy we did because we got to see this and it was so much fun to watch the water coming up. I would have loved to have run through that. I think Michael would enjoy this.

Of course no stop to Battery Park would be complete without stopping to check out the Positive Brothers. I think some of the members are the same as one guy looked familiar to me.

From there we walked to the 9/ll Memorial where we were lucky enough to score some daily tickets. This was such a peaceful spot and not once did you realize that it was in the city because it was so peaceful and serene. You literally couldn’t hear the city and the noise. It was a little emotional because thoughts of that day popped into my head and it brought me back to that day.

After that we walked back to the bus to finish up the tour. We drove by United Nations and were sad to discover that the flags are removed daily, then Trump Towers (nope didn’t see Donald), Rockefeller center is an amazing place and I think next time I would love to get off and look around even though Tina and I did walk around after one of our parties.

After the tour I hit a souvenir shop to pick up a few souvenirs and made our way back to the hotel. Kim had decided on doing the night tour since it was a part of the ticket and Kate and I decided to go out for supper and what we thought was a nice little place but quickly realized the service sucked and wouldn’t be going there again.

So that concludes the trip. I had so much fun this past week.
