 Now that we are all venturing out as we get vaccinated it is time to make up for the lost COVID year. Fresh from my adventure to the Edge a few weeks ago we decided to go to the 86th floor and watch the sun rise from atop the Empire State Building. it is amazing that this iconic building was completed in just 13 months. I hadn’t been to the ESB since I was a kid and my buddy, Amy had never been – so off we went. I was not expecting the most fabulous sunrise (as long as we did not have fog I would be happy). The city is quiet on a Saturday morning and it was great watching the hints of light and color on the horizon. If was a wonderful experience (if you don’t count that fact that I forgot to put the battery in my SLR camera). All of today’s photos were taken with my iPhone. If you can get up early you might consider trying this unique, fun adventure. Before departing the venue you should visit the second floor which is filled with history, interactive exhibits and of course – King Kong.

Sunrises with Jack the Dog August 27, 2017

Having Jack the Dog in my life for the past 13 months has been almost perfect. He is an adorable, sweet, quiet, cat-loving senior pooch. However, he has one major flaw. He gets up at 4:41 AM each day (give or take a few minutes). No matter when we have a night walk he gets up at 4:41. So out we go into the quiet, mostly darkened NYC streets. We try not to wake the homeless people sleeping on the Madison Square Park benches. Our route is the same each morning. In trying to find an upside to this schedule I realized that we catch some amazing sunrises (and moon-sets) during these walks. I have been photographing them with my phone and thought it was time to share some of them with you. Enjoy.
