Ending on a High Note.

I had an easy trip home yesterday. Marc and Holly were glad to see me and it felt good to walk in “my park” with Lauren this morning. Today I have errands to run and laundry to do, but first, I wanted to share one last New York post with y’all.  The timing of my trip was centered around one event, that took place Tuesday evening.

The Fab Five were wonderful – smart, funny, thoughtful and entertaining (honestly, all the things I’d expect from watching them in two seasons of Queer Eye). It was a great way to end a very fun week in New York.

as was this clear view of Manhattan and Central Park (just look how much more park I can explore on future trips!)

This morning I mashed 70 of my favorite seconds into a video

and then compiled a few statistics.

Thursday – Tuesday, from my watch, just before I took it off each night

112,998 steps – – 25.44 miles on #morningwalks – – 55.34 miles all together

I loved exploring so much of the city on foot! I also get really comfortable with the subway and figuring out how to get from point A to point B without having to rely quite so much on Maps.

But mostly, it was wonderful to see so much of Sara and the place she calls home. I can’t wait to go back!

    Great finish and a fun video. You certainly got around!!

    The fabric from Purl with the greys and blues – looks a bit Oriental? – LOVE that fabric!!!

    And I thought Fort Collins was a great place to visit! 🙂 All those miles exploring the city, purchasing fabric, and spending time with Sara makes me wish we could win the lottery and visit our kids once a month!

    So ironic that we were both in NYC at the same time. Probably should have had a meet-up in Central Park since we were staying about two blocks south. The only walking I did in the park was to get to a horse and carriage. Our conductor told us to rest and hydrate all day on Sunday before our performance that evening. So, my husband and I decided an early morning romantic carriage ride was just the ticket. It was a bit of a whirlwind trip for us arriving on Thursday afternoon, dinner with friends, rehearsals on Friday and Saturday, Sunday performance, and home on Monday. We did manage to squeeze in a Broadway show (Escape to Margaritaville), a walking tour, an additional Carnegie Hall performance (David Phelps), lots of good food, and a “few” drinks. New York is quite the city, but I was glad to get back to my little rural southern town.
