Christmas Day we took an invigorating walk on Long Island beach. The wind was howling, the sea angry yet it was so much fun…and COLD! The beach was practically deserted and made our time feel more intimate. To thaw out, we had a picnic of hot tea and cookies waiting in the car. Perfect end to a perfect day.

Museum of Natural History NYC


As we are getting settled into our new home, I thought I’d share a few more New York moments with you and visiting the Museum of Natural History was a highlight. In the main lobby, engraved in all four corners of these fabulous limestone stone walls were quotes by Theodore Roosevelt, which I found moving. The dinosaurs are always a big hit and the halls were packed with people. I kept thinking to myself…”I wonder what happens here after midnight?” Despite my efforts, I found no traces of suspicious activities.
