Exploring Manhattan.

Yesterday we decided to see where the day took us. We had plans to see the Statue of Liberty but it was a trek from our hotel room and didn't feel worthwhile. Instead I saw a bus that was heading to Midtown and we hopped on. Little did we know that the last stop would be right in the middle of the city, just a few blocks from Central Park. We opted to wonder around and take in the sights. 

We explored a part of town that we hadn't spent much time in. I managed to squeeze in a little shopping. Of course. We ended up in Central Park, where we parted ways. My mom chose to visit the Museum of the City of New York. I sprawled onto the green under a tree and read. 

Two years ago I visited New York for the first time. My favorite spot was Central Park. I observed all the locals, laying on the grass, basking in the sun. I daydreamed of doing the same. My dream came true today. And it felt great.

After my time in the park, I did a little more shopping [LUSH was calling my name] and grabbed a smoothie on the way to the subway. 

All in all it was a wonderful day.
