USA Wanderings: Looking Around Central Park
Yesterday I got to spend some more time with Stacy before she left New York for her home. I felt very lucky that I got to spend a second day with her. She also understood that my feet were not the best and whatever we did had to be easy, so we decided to take it easy and stroll around Central Park.
Of course most people have heard of Central Park, and I’m sure it gets lots and lots of visitors each year, but it was my first time there and I thought it was fantastic. There are so many different parts to it, and each one very different to the last.
As you can see we went to see the Alice in Wonderland sculpture. I was very surprised by how many people were climbing over it, apparently it is the way the artist wanted it, but it made it very hard to get photos.
We had coffee at the boat house which was nice. One thing that I’ve been trying to do is to find places that I know have been in movies that I have seen. One of those places is in Central Park, the Bow Bridge.
Beautiful bridge that was featured in the movie Highlander. I know it was made 30 years ago, but I love it and have watched it many times since then. I really wanted to find the bridge and take photos of it.
We went to the memorial for John Lennon and saw this.
We left the park at this point and headed out to find somewhere to eat for lunch before having to say good bye. It is so sad doing that. I will go home at the end of next week and I might never see her again, but I encouraged her to come to Australia to visit, I thought that would be really nice.
I shall leave you with more of the images I took in the Park.
