Spring Break with Katrina in NYC

Katrina and I decided to take two nights away for our own personal Spring Break, so we came up to New York City and had decent enough weather yesterday to go for a long walk, up Times Square, over to Rockefeller Center and St. Patrick’s Cathedral, up Fifth Avenue to Central Park. And that’s where we ran into a movie being filmed at a swing set. Special Effects had brought in snow, and Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock were there (Tom taller than we thought and clad in a brown leather jacket) filming while we watched. We went on over to Columbus, had a quiet supper, and ambled back down to our hotel. It was a wonderful afternoon on the streets of New York City. Today we’re going to the Metropolitan Museum and tonight to Mary Poppins on Broadway. Home tomorrow. Here are some pics.

  1. This looked like a wonderful getaway for the two of you. I can see the joy in her face. The silhouette picture of her is beautiful, too.
    Please give her my thanks for letting you teach at our library conference last weekend at Ridgecrest.

  2. You two look great and very relaxed, which you both deserve. Sure wish you would have chosen Florida, but you are enjoying each other for a short break. God Bless you both! Love and Miss you! And yes, Katrina was and is the Brightest Star! Kathy and Donk
