During the first week in December, Charley and I went on another adventure with our friends Jack and Jean. We took a pleasant train ride from our local Kingston Station to Penn Station in New York and became part of the masses that flock to the Big Apple every year at this time.
We enjoyed the usual touristy things:
Shopping for crafts and gifts at the seasonal stalls in Central Park, Grand Central Station and Bryant Park.
Stopping in to Saint Patrick’s Cathedral
Checking out the holiday windows and department store decorations at Saks 5th Avenue, Lord and Taylor and Macy’s.
The Christmas Tree, “Toy” Soldiers and Angels at Rockefeller Center
And the Rockette’s Christmas Extravaganza at Radio City Music Hall
For a few days and nights we blended into the sights and sounds on the crowded streets of New York City during the holiday season. Then, we packed up, flagged down a cab, headed back to Penn Station with our friends and returned to South County.
Needless to say, Roxie and ZuZu were waiting expectantly for us to begin our own holiday celebration with them.
And so, from our home in the woods of Kingston to your home, wherever you may be, we wish you a Peaceful Holiday Season and a Prosperous and Happy New Year.
Love, Clare, Charley, ZuZu, and Roxie D.
