Fall In New York.

 I could not believe my eyes when I arrived in Rye, N.Y. on the 19th.  I was so happy to see my family and an added plus was this... It being farther north from where I live, I figured Fall would be gone but it was still there to greet me. Even though it is now two weeks since then, I want to share the beauty that Fall is in the Northeast. 

Everything was golden! This is one of the first sights I had of New York Fall. 

A tree at the corner of their house! 

A touch of red at the Westchester Country Club. 

                                       An array of colors behind someone's pretty white fence. 

                                                A splash of orange amid the greens and yellows. 

This beautiful home had an equally beautiful yard ... all decorated with red trees. 

A golden leaf floats through the air! 

Too soon all of the Fall colors will be gone but they were still there when I got on a plane to head home on the 2nd of December. 

I hope you enjoyed the Fall colors as much as I did. 
Being with my family in New York after a two years absence was extra special but it was good to get back home.

"Leaving On A Jet Plane"

 I'm going to do it...

                 And, I feel a bit apprehensive about it....

I haven't traveled by public transportation since before Covid started but I am going to do it. "I'm leaving on a jet plane" Friday, 

headed to New York to spend Thanksgiving with my youngest daughter and her family.

It's been just over two years since I was there which means that I have not seen my grandson, Griffin, (Susan's oldest) nor his brother, Owen. Susan and the youngest son, 13 year old Tighe, did come down to see us once. 

   Susan asked me what I wanted to do while there. 

Well, it's like this.... I am so 'INTO' good food right now. Just savoring each and every bite when I find something that is outstandingly delicious. And, believe you, me, New York has some great food!

So, I want to go to a restaurant in Greenwich, Ct. that I haven't been to yet. 
And, of course, I have to go to La Pain, a French place there in Rye. They have the most yummy breakfasts!!

Grandson Griffin and his sweet Kelsey live in the City and I haven't seen their apartment so I want to do that. And, probably try out an eating place near where they live. That will be soooooo fun. Maybe there will be some Christmas decorations up already in the City. 

We will be dragging out the Christmas decorations after Thanksgiving is over and maybe we will make some crafty something. I will be sure to make lots of pictures. 

I have been so limited with the picture taking because I have 'shot' everything within my sight range more than once and I just need something new to get in my viewfinder! 

I won't have my laptop with me. So, it will probably be when I get back home (and I don't know yet when that will be). Susan bought a one-way ticket. hehe. But, I promise you plenty of pictures when and how I can use them. 

And, keep your fingers crossed that there are no disgruntled passengers that are mad about wearing masks on that plane! Maybe if they don't want to wear a mask, they should take the train or rent a car. But, my flight is only 1 hour and 20 minutes so here's hoping it's an easy one.
