Here Bear And Everywhere!

We visited the American Museum of Natural History for the first time ( a great way to spend a rainy day, thanks for the tip Barbs!). The dioramas were amazing, I particularly loved the Alaska brown bear above - wow! Look at that heart shaped face.

High Life on the High Line

Last spring when we were in New York a project was underway building a city park with a difference, a park built on a disused elevated train line, called the High Line We returned this week to find it open - it's great, full of local grasses and plants with loads of sympathetically designed seating with an incredible viewing deck overlooking one of the main streets running through the Meat Packing District.

Autumn in New York

Walking through a very wet Central Park yesterday, saw these lovely leaves on a footpath.
