Hello blog friends. I am so happy to be back from my blog break! I totally enjoyed my time away and missed you all!
I recently had a meeting to go to on the upper east side of Manhattan, in New York City. When my meeting was over, I decided to take a stroll right near Central Park. The day was brisk and cold, but taking in the sights and taking these photos made the walk worthwhile!
Please sit back and enjoy the walk with me! 😀
These trees looked so barren and cold, but you can see the beautiful clouds in the sky just peeking through.
What I found very strange was that this walk was so refreshing and very quiet. I kept looking behind me to see if there was anyone walking and there weren't any people. There were no huge crowds of people and no loud honks from the cars and taxi cabs. It's so hard to believe that the city can be very quiet at times.
One the left of me is the Church of the Heavenly Rest, and it's located at 2 East 90th Street. It's an Episcopal church. It's also located right across the street from Central Park and the Carnegie Mansion; also know as the Cooper Hewitt Museum.
The Cooper Hewitt Museum is a design museum, located on the upper east side of Manhattan, at 2 East 91st Street. The link for this museum can be found HERE.
If you look at the tree branches in this photo, you can see that the trees are starting to bud with little leaves.
Below this granite and bronze monument is know well to runners and walkers who enter it's terrace stairway to the Reservoir at Fifth Avenue and 90th Street.
This view of the Reservoir I found to be so beautiful, with those white clouds that reminded me of cotton candy.
I just loved this photo of the water, the tree branches sweeping across the sky, and the manhattan skyline.
I loved this photo so much that I made a watercolor scene using the Waterlouge app! Using this app makes your photos look like watercolor and sketched photos.
I just love this huge old tree with the museums in the background. Soon spring will be here and this tree will be blooming full of leaves. Is anyone excited about spring as much as me?
This is the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum which is located at 1071 5th Avenue. Fifth Avenue is also known as Museum Mile. The link to this museum can be found HERE.
This is the end of my short walk! Thanks for coming along and I hope you all enjoyed this short walk with me. If you have not been or visited the upper east side of Manhattan in New York City, then I suggest you come and have a visit. There are so many museums to visit, restaurants, and of course shopping. The spring and summer are a wonderful time of year to take a stroll and sightsee.
When was the last time you took a leisurely stroll?
Thanks everyone for stopping by and have a wonderful end of the week and weekend. Jess and I will see you all back here on Monday for our Cooking and Crafting with J & J Link Up!
