Hi everyone, I’m just back from a long weekend in New York with my friend, Angie, we had a fab time, it was hot and sunny and … beautiful.  We went to Freedom Tower (Ground Zero) and saw the wonderful work continuing there; to Niagara Falls, what an experience; took in a Broadway show Priscilla Queen of the Desert; ate too much; walked for miles; chilled in Central Park – and now we’re back home and I’m catching up with hundreds of emails and the blog.  And goodness me, blogging peeps, you have been busy while I’ve been away!  Sorry if I don’t get around to commenting on the wonderful work you did while I was off enjoying myself 😉 but think you’ll understand.  Maybe some poems will transpire as a result of my travels … what think you?

Here are some pics that I took – hope you like them.

Freedom Tower

Freedom Tower – officially the tallest building in New York – just higher than the Empire State Building and still going up!
