A Foggier New York

Wow, this is weird. I got up at 4:30 this morning in anticipation of a 2008 like ride under the bridge and back up the river. But no, I get a lot of fog with a blaring fog horn. Speaking of that, I now recall a downside to the Deck 9 forward cabin location planned…

A New York Sunday

What a day. Steps Sunday topped out over 29k. Many miles added to feet already in bad shape. Any more than 3 nights here and I might hurt myself. Kicking myself now for not taking advantage of the quiet midtown yesterday morning by renting a bike. Way more activity at 5:30am Monday. The park closed…

Road trip and NYC

Ok, so I was wrong earlier when I said I’d be writing from Bryant Park this morning. Would you believe it was closed!? Why would a park close? I was a little disappointed to say the least. So now I’m over at Times Square between 42nd and 43rd. And who would think that would ever…

New York City June 2nd, 2017

Wow, what a day today has been. Our most enjoyable day in New York in a long time. After breakfast at the hotel we hit the subway for Central Park and the Zoo. Its a tiny zoo and the variety of animals isn’t the greatest but the setting is unbeatable in my opinion. I’m sure…

New York City June 1, 2017

Trip from home was uneventful. Didn’t make very good time due to some construction we came across which probably knocked us back an hour getting to the city. Once through the Holland Tunnel we tried to find a little place on Canal St. that Steph had seen on TV. But we had no luck. So…

NYC and Norwegian Breakaway 2016

An Afternoon Downtown So the first part of this is going to sound terribly similar to our New York visit this past June. We were up early and on the road from WV at 6:40. We stopped a couple of times on the way at a Loves Travel Plaza in Cumberland, MD and again at…

A Breakaway Sunday

As is the case with the first day of most every cruise, we all crashed early Sunday night so I didn’t get a chance to write anything down about our day. I’ll take a little time now to hit the highlights. Steph was first up as usual on Sunday morning and was making a making…

A Brief Visit to NYC

Friday June 3, 2016 We hit the road this morning a little after 7am and made great time. The first stop was at the new Loves at Cumberland, MD which was very nice. Steph actually drove almost four and a half hours before we switched at the next Loves just before Allentown. I think it took…
