Love New York

Hello dear friends, hope you had a wonderful Christmas break spent with family and friends. I am still on holidays until mid January. Not that I am complaining, in fact I am savouring every minute of it. Here are some photos of New York City. I must admit I fell in love with it. Not only for its outstanding landmarks and parks but for its people too.  I find New Yorkers jolly, patient, polite and friendly. I love their positive attitude towards life, especially in a difficult situation.
Here are some of our pictures of New York. Please pardon my photos as I only used my IPhone to take them. And at this stage my computer pooped itself so here I am blogging using my IPad. 
I will be uploading photos of Yosemite and Grand Canyon this week. 
Thank you dear friends for your kind messages and for your friendship over the past years. 
Hope you are all having a wonderful week.

The soft light in Central Park was breathtaking. The icy lakes speak of beauty trapped in time, waiting for the next season when its surroundings awake to a brand new day.
Taking selfies was undeniably handy.
A sit down was necessary, to take in everything that we saw
It was very cold and chilly but I didn't mind, for I was having the time of my life
Top of the Rock tops it all
Even 5th Avenue got me going 

There were squirrels everywhere. 
I can't believe I was just up there 
Statue of Liberty surely stole the party

Oh how festive everything was

Manhattan Bridge -last two days of our stay in New York was a little drizzly. Hard to take a very clear picture.
And the famous Brooklyn Bridge
Walking in blustery conditions from Washington DC station didn't dishearten us, for we knew Mr Lincoln would be waiting for us, and that was enough to make our day complete.
The Rockefeller Centre
My daughter would like a picture, before we get inside The Met.
The Grand Central station, so grand that there's nothing like it.
Times Square by day

Dinner at Applebee's 

One of my favourite things...M & M's store

Home for Christmas

Hello dear friends, my daughter and I had a fabulous time in the US. We stayed in Brooklyn when we were in New York, enjoyed our visit to Liberty Island, Staten Island, Ellis Island and went for a day trip to Washington DC. We traveled to San Francisco, Las Vegas, and LA as our last stop before heading home to Sydney. 
I will be sharing some photos of our trip after Christmas. But for now, I am flat-out like a lizard drinking in preparation for our chrismas lunch at home for 17 people. Well, at least I was able to put up our Christmas tree, baked some goodies and prepare our home for this festive season full of happiness, love, laughter sharing of the past year's happenings. Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas.

In America

Hello dear friends, hope everyone is looking forward to the upcoming festivity. I didn't have a chance to visit your blogs for the last few weeks, the  reason being, I am in America on a holiday with my sweet daughter. Well, we are having a great time and soaking up the most spectacular views America can offer. Thank you for all your lovely messages on my last post. Hope to visit you soon.
During our stay in San Francisco, we did a day tour of Yosemite National Park, and was able to meet up with our friend who lives in Burlingame. 
I will tell you more about my trip when I get back to Sydney. Enjoy your week dear friends.
