A rather tattered looking cat came to say hello on our visit to the farm.  A barn cat called Spider!
So we were informed by the horse handler, taking the horses out to pasture.

  The old barn where I'm guessing Spider catches mice!

West 34th Street

 It's nearly impossible to avoid looking like a tourist in New York City... always trying to snap another skyscraper and W34th street offers those iconic views of the Empire State building, so I couldn't help myself!

One for weekend Reflections  HERE as I used my iPhone to capture the scene in hubby's shades!

Have a good weekend!

Beach Break

A break from the NYC photos, here are some pictures of the beach and boardwalk at Asbury Park NJ.

It was perfect for cycling...

Thankful for a wonderful time on vacation and safe travels there and back again!

Grand Central

Grand Central reminds me of a beehive - there's so many levels and a great buzz of activity.

It is a beautiful building...the flag is huge, looking upwards.

Tom Otterness has created lots of these subway characters and I had fun looking out for them.

Thanks for joining me again ... Have a great day!

A look around Chelsea Market

Chelsea Market (75 9th Ave) is a cool kind of market, though it wasn't so much the stores inside it that I wanted to see.  The place is cool because you can get a real feel for the old warehousing and workplaces that existed here in the past as part of the Meatpacking district.

I loved the exposed brick and huge industrial pipes on view...

You can watch your daily bread being baked...

....and a couple of murals...

Glad you could stop by!

The High Line NYC

We started our vacation in NYC and wanted to see different parts of the city from the High Line.  Interesting to find unusual art installations along the way as well as the views.

It was a blisteringly hot bright day...

Here's a condensed few snapshots along the way...

Above is a huge mural called 'The Floaters" by Henry Taylor at 22nd Street.

Below another mural I spotted some way away through the old brick buildings, but no details available.

The Meat Packing district...

One of most unusual sculptures along the way...

This was a new art piece being installed...

Another mural I spotted across the buildings...

We left the High Line at Chelsea Market...more tomorrow...

Thanks for your visit!

Landis Valley Pt 2

Landis Valley Museum is a working farm too and these were some of the fine horses in the paddock - they made us feel very welcome as they were so friendly.

I am not sure of the breed of cattle in this field.

These were the old log barns behind the field

Hoping to link these with Tom's Barn Collective HERE
