Saturday photo journal

Saturday started with a glorious lunch and very nearly ended in a riot. Lunch at Sushi Nakazawa is a different post, so I didn’t include those photos here.

Since we were in the area, we walked by the Friends apartment.

Admiring the Friends building.

Merchant marine memorial, which is eerie.

Outside Battery Park.

We biked a little more than five miles from Battery Park to Hell’s Kitchen on this lovely bike path.

World Trade Center memorial.

Enjoying a rest at City Beer, where Bob is convinced Leonardo DiCaprio was serving.

DJ Pizza for a quick dinner, after sunning on our rooftop for a few hours.

We took a cruise around the end of Manhattan and by the Statue of Liberty.

There was lightning flickering all night, and this shot caught some, turning one frame of the long exposure much lighter.

When we were preparing to dock, it began bucketing down and everyone was herded inside. It got sweltering hot, and everyone was annoyed. It quickly got ugly, and when our side wasn’t let off the ship fast enough, people began getting stirred up and making verbal threats. Those people were hustled away very quickly. Eventually we were able to get off the boat, and by luck it had stopped raining. We got home around 1am, with a 6am wake-up. Ah, to be young again!
