I had a blast yesterday wondering around NYC but it made me so tired! I have no idea how much we walked, but I know that my feet hurt and that I enjoyied every minute of it. The weather was perfect for the trip, there was a nice breeze coming off the water and Central Park was beautiful. We went to the NYC Post Office across the street from Penn Station that will soon be demolished to make way for a new station, but some of the facade will remain....awwww. We then walked at least half of Central Park, ending up on some hiking paths. We were supposed to ride this really cool balloon, unfortunatly they only take four people up at a time for a ten minute ride, by the time we got there we would have had to wait until around 4pm to ride, pending the wind since they do not bring the balloon up if its too windy. Oh well, maybe next time then! As we were leaving the Park we found this really cool bridge, how cool does this look!After our park adventure we had a lovely brunch and then some ice cream. The we made our way to the south west part of Manhattan and walked to the Brooklyn Bridge to see the three man made waterfalls which looked so neat. It really was a lovely trip and it was great to see Alice again. We had a great time. Thank you for all the brithday wishes, your all the best!
