NYC Entry (2)

So in my continuing review of pix from our Islander Adventure I’ve again reached the point where we entered The City. After a quiet night near the Linden, NJ airport we took the short train ride into Manhattan. Coming up out of Penn Station, the city greets you like an avalanche.

Stimulation everywhere. People, sounds, traffic, billboards, colors, movement, aromas. This place is Alive!

We wandered the city a little, then met our wonderful friend Bob at his mid-town office. On the way to join up with his delightful wife Enid at their cozy home in Nyack he took us to another place of overwhelm, named Fairway Market.

If it’s food and you like it, they have it. This pic shows perhaps 1% of the space in this enormous market tucked under a highway bridge along the Hudson River. We took our bags of bounty home, then the four of us enjoyed a walk among the abundance of Spring.

The spectrum of beauty surrounding their home near the other side of the Hudson is matched by the souls of these two. We walked and talked our way past the towering cliffs and onto the trail cut along the river. Such sweet memories, I sighed deliciously just now typing this. Friends and family add So much to our adventures in life. 🙂
