It's been a while since I've traveled. But I'm happy to have stayed inside for most of this week to my editing and reading. I realized, though, that I haven't posted most of my traveling pictures. I'll try to update. As anyone who knows me knows, I travel to New York often. Park of my New York routine is visiting Central Park. Usually I'll have a picnic and/or read on a lawn somewhere. Being in Central Park makes me wish Golden Gate Park was more accessible and walkable.
The weather's been great. Perfect for a picnic and reading in Central Park. After a quick stop at the post office, I set out for Bouchon Bakery for my yummy macaron. Wearing a dress, my legs enjoyed the warmth of the sun. I spent most of the afternoon in Central Park finding good reading/picnicking spots. I found some good spots. Atop a high rock I watched softball and a special woman in particular who could not throw or catch for the life of her, but she had a very cute outfit: matching high socks, pinstripe shorts and a cute jersey. At another spot I watched three siblings climb all around me. At another spot I watched boaters and love boaters. :) I made my final stop at the Great Lawn, where I found the perfect tree to sit and read at, very reminiscent of Rory Gilmore. I spent most of the day at the lovely tree, finishing nearly half of my book....
However, my people watching/stalking got the best of me. I couldn't stop watching this man. I'd wonder if he'd make a full roll or what curious noise he'd make or if he'd even wake up. He even talked in his sleep! He slept for nearly two hours. What a trooper! I stopped when at one point he pulled up his shirt in his sleep. Kind of awkward, considering directly next to him was a herd of children and their mothers.
Countdown until I return to New York: 5 days! Autumn absolutely wins for best season in New York. Well, autumn actually wins out for best season of all time, so there's actually no contest. When I was in New York last fall, I spent a good amount of time walking and reading in the park. Those were perfect days.
