Following two days of torrential rain on the Saturday and Sunday the sun finally shone down upon us! What to do in New York City on a perfectly sunny day? Why, stroll around Central Park of course! And what made it infinitely better is that we were joined by my Auntie Joyce and Uncle Dougie who just happened to be in NYC at the same time. Brucey bonus!
So arm in arm we sauntered, at a most leisurely pace, our faces carressed by the warm rays of the springtime sunshine. It felt glorious and was quite the contrast to the previous day when Craigy Boy and I had been caught in an almighty downpour whilst crossing over Brooklyn Bridge:
What struck me most was the juxtaposition of Central Park against the iconic city skyline and its soaring skyscrapers. It provides a veritable oasis of peace and tranquility from the city that literally never sleeps! Craigy Boy and Auntie Joyce took advantage of the brief respite from all the hustle and bustle.
We only spent a couple of hours in Central Park which is not very long considering you could easily spend an entire day exploring the many attractions that lie inside but it was exactly what we all needed: we strolled, we sat and watched the world go by, we strolled some more and left feeling that our sightseeing batteries had been fully recharged.
Ginger Warrior, over and out.

P.P.S. Have you been to New York? Did you visit Central Park? What did you do there?
