Wednesday’s Grateful List. 

Today I am grateful that you are taking the time to read my blog. 

I do get embarrassed about all the traveling that I do and I really appreciate the time that you take to look at what I am writing. I feel very blessed to be alive and physically fit enough to travel and I hope that by sharing my travels you are able to share a small amount of my enjoyment. 

Yesterday in New York was pretty wet. We had planned a day of galleries. Breakfast for me is the most important meal of the day so I like to take some time to consider where to go. We went to a place called Sarabeth’s. It was lovely – white tablecloths, lovely service and delicious food. Our visit to the galleries started after this  at the Frick Museum. We had been there before and although the art is the same as last time  I visited the building is so beautiful it was worth another visit. From there we went to the Met. The Met  is the Metropolitan Museum of Art and it is huge. All the information on travel sites suggest that it is too big to do  all on one day. We chose to look at The Maxwell Beckman exhibition and the European Masters. Both were amazing. The European Masters included Renoir, Degas, Monet, Manet, Van Gough and Cezanne.  My favourite artist of that group is definitely Renoir. After absorbing all this art we were hungry again! The most sensible solution was afternoon tea at The Plaza

After such a delicious sojourn the only thing to do was to have a little afternoon nap. This gave us enough energy to stay awake watching a Broadway show.

 The show we went to was called The Front Page. It has had very mixed reviews but we loved it and stayed awake! It was light hearted, funny and had lots of famous people in it! 

Today we woke up to a beautiful day. We were thrilled because we had planned to walk the Brooklyn Bridge. We caught a cab to Brooklyn and started the day  at  the Brooklyn Roasting Company. We  had  great coffee in a very groovy warehouse. After our coffee we wandered up to Dumbo Kitchen. Once again we started our day on a great note. Once we had food in our tummies we walked across the Brooklyn Bridge. Our afternoon was spent at the Interpid Air and Space Museum.  Although this was not a place I was very enthusiastic about going to I actually really enjoyed it. We looked through a submarine, learnt about and looked at the Space Shuttle Enterprise and toured an aircraft carrier called Intrepid. 

We tried to go up the Empire State Building in the late afternoon. The wait was 3 and 1/2 hours. We decided to go out to dinner instead….now off to dinner.

Until next time
