Yesterday was Columbus Day, and B had the day off school. Despite his claims that the still had lots of work to do, I insisted that we leave the apartment at least for a little while, so, bright and early we rolled out of bed, on to the subway, and eventually climbed out into the bright sunlight at Central Park.
We grabbed coffee and muffins from Dean & Deluca (thank you for the recommendation C!) and soaked in the dappled morning sunlight on a bench, making friends with the dogs that passed by while sipping on our coffee and nibbling on our breakfast.
It was the most beautiful Fall day: the sun was bright, there were no clouds in the sky, and the leaves on the trees are gradually darkening and falling to the floor.
We meandered for hours, around the reservoir admiring the reflections, losing ourselves in small paths amongst huge trees, marveling at the vast space in the middle of this crowded, crazy city. The most idyllic Monday morning.
