WOW, who knew it would take almost a month to catch up from my computer dying!!! So here we are back at July 7 and Graham and I are in NYC for our long weekend….
We spent a very relaxing morning at the hotel reading and enjoying the quiet. Mid morning we headed to see the Statue of Liberty and the WTC (World Trade Center) site. It was super-duper hot that day and we didn’t make it very far before we had to stop for lunch and some time in the ac!!
We didn’t realize that the WTC sight was a free but ticketed sight, so we didn’t see the memorial, but we did walk around and enjoyed taking in the big city.
By then we were hot and sweaty so we headed back to the hotel to shower and clean up and head to Picholine. it was here we celebrated a few weeks early our 15th Anniversary! FIFTEEN YEARS!! Holy poopy pants!
Anyway, it was a WONDERFUL Michelin Stared Restaurant. In order to get a flavor of all they do we had the taster menu with wine pairings! The Somalia that evening was wonderful explaining all about the wines and what they do to the food. It was such a learning experience! He even gave us a ‘free’ pairing as he said we looked like we were enjoying ourselves and we were!!
I don’t have any pictures of that evening, but here is the Statue of Liberty and WTC site.
PS At the time of writing this we are jsut days away from the BIG 15! It’s been a pleasure my love!
