West Village Friday Evening

My sister made Raffetto’s Wild Mushroom Ravioli and Broccoli tonight. Parmesan cheese on top.

After we ate, we took a walk. No gelato tonight.  We already had an Italian ice earlier in the afternoon

I had raspberry Italian ice from Rocco’s Pasticceria

 

 

It was such a lovely evening. Lots of people out to dinner and enjoying the summer night.

We made it back to Mary’s apartment after a long travel day- caught a tail wind and the flight was just four and a half hours from Seattle.

Temperature and humidity demand adjustment.

We had a wonderful trip to Okanogan and Alaska but are glad to be home. I’ve one more leg on the train to Pittsburgh.imageupdate 11:14 AM

Reverse order save last one but blogging from phone and it seems too difficult to get them in chronological order now. 4-3-3-1-5

Weekly Photo Challenge: The World Through Your Eyes

The challenge of curves spoke to me immediately.

This week’s challenge the world through your eyes, did not.

But then I looked at the photo of my sister in NYC from the other night, the reflection of Freedom Tower (behind the buildings in the foreground) in her sunglasses as we sat along the Hudson River at Battery Park.  A literal interpretation.  It seems I set it up AFTER reading  the challenge today.
