PIG-OUT day in MANHATTAN

IT was a fun day.  Tastings were $5 and $7……..I did the PIG thing.  For $100 VIP PASS you could taste it all.  I did NOT pig out!

But I did go for the PIG HEAD.…..took me back to my childhood days on the farm in Clarkesville Georgia.

The PIG OUT took place in Madison Square Park on 23rd street.

A stroll in CENTRAL PARK today

After lunch at the boat house we strolled over to theBethesda Fountain……and met this sweet couple from Australia………..Jayde and John.  She has been to NYC four times……..this is John’s first visit.

The weather was fantastic.  The geese…….the tulips…..the sketch artists………the “bubble boy”………the brides…….the turtles……….and thousands of tourist……….all enjoying Central Park.

NYC has BUDDED and BLOOMED

CENTRAL PARK is ablaze with blossoms…….Cherry and Apple.

Artists capture the beauty………

The ELDORADO TOWERS get a great view of the reservoir.

SNOW DAY in New York…was a BLIZZARD

We did NOT get the predicted 24″ of snow………..just a nice dusting……..as you can see in these watercolors. BUT….tomorrow it will be dirty nasty grey sludge.

The Dakota Apartments at Central Park West and 72s street………….and the benches just inside the park.

The Many MASKS in Jackson Square Park

This is a sweet little park in Greenwich Village…………and the kids who play in the park …….made masks………..and now the park has many faces.  They didn’t buy stuff……they used things they found around the house.
