SUNNY MONDAY in Central Park

It was such a glorious day in Central Park today. Weddings……….entertainers………..horse and buggy rides………..groups of school  kids and I spotted two Fabergé Eggs at the Boat House.  260 of these eggs have been “hidden” around the park.  The sale of the eggs will benefit art education for New York City’s children.
