After another slow start we packed up our hotel room and headed off to Central Park.

After chasing a few squirrels, we tried out 3 of the 21 playgrounds in the park before the girls and I decided on the carousel. We were waving to Dean and noticed him talking to someone. We suddenly realised it was Shaun Melbourne, a very dear friend from the dog walking park. What a coincidence!! After we recovered from the shock we made our way to the Boathouse and enjoyed the yummiest meal there looking out onto the lake. There was a wedding there and we loved watching the bride and groom leave their reception in a gondola across the lake. After seeing some terrific singers on our way out we headed back to the hotel.

Our first trip on the subway was pretty successful once Bells swiped her ticket properly and I extricated my bag and body from the turnstile.

We got to our stop in Brooklyn after getting help from a lovely local and headed through the very hip neighbourhood to our home for the next week.

We’re staying in a gorgeous Brownstone in Park Slope and there seem
to be lots of great places to see and eat at. Has a bit of a Fitzroy vibe!

Not long after we got here, our friends Mike and Caroline arrived from Ireland and we enjoyed enormous pizza’s!

Looking forward to exploring tomorrow!
