We hit the ground running (or walking) when we arrived in NYC. My friend Grace Young, the cookbook author, lives in Manhattan and despite our delayed arrival she came right to our hotel on Wednesday night and acted as tour guide and mentor for us. We walked around Grand Central Station, Times Square and Rockefeller Center and then walked to a new hot spot on the West side where we enjoyed this fantastic view of the city at night.
Thursday we did all the touristy stuff and loved every minute of it. Of course I did not have the right shoes and have blisters everywhere. That made the walking excruciating, but I bought new shoes and band aids we kept at it.
I was amazed how very friendly everyone was. Even Ironman was giving directions. (my favorite picture from our time in NYC)
When we arrived back at the hotel in the evening we found this tray of chocolate covered strawberries and a bottle of wine in the room waiting for us. It was from from Steve's law partner Michon, who is now my bff. Bonus!!
I just enjoyed a glass of wine in the Waldorf Astoria and rested my sore and bandaged feet and thought life is pretty good
