New York, New York

It has been a long time since Linda and I were in New York together, and we couldn’t be happier about the first day of a 7-day stay in the Big Apple. Yesterday’s cold rain gave way to a brilliant blue sky and a gorgeous, crisp New York day.

Today’s goal was a walk around the reservoir in Central Park, an idea that we shared with many natives, as well as throngs of tourists. Business travellers both, in our youth, Linda and I cherished the jog around the reservoir (usually from The Algonquin on 44th near 6th). A few times we managed to land in NY together, including once on Thanksgiving Day, when we ran at dawn up the middle of a deserted 5th Avenue to the park.

We were not sure we’d ever circumnavigate the reservoir together again, but we did it today, in fine style on a glorious day. Sunset was marvelous, too, as we set out for a very nice dinner at Dovetail. About as happy as we’ve been in the last three years…
