For the first time in weeks, I had a free Saturday (no scheduled events during the middle of the day)! I convinced Lyndee that we should go shopping and run some errands together. We had a fabulously fun day - spent hours (7+) wandering around Canal Street and Herald Square, also venturing momentarily into the Garment District. We were veritable bag-ladies by the time we finally shoved our way onto the 2/3 train at Penn Station to head home. It was a beautiful day in NYC and the two of us had a great time!
About halfway through the day we decided to stop for some lunch (and to rest our weary feet). There was a McDonald's down the block, but as we headed towards it we came across a small pizza shop and decided that it held more appeal.
After ordering, we realized that the tables were all occupied. Lyndee promptly walked up to a table where an older man was sitting alone and asked if he would share with us. (Quite possibly something I never would have considered doing.) He made room and we enjoyed some fun conversation. We learned that he was a construction guy (the hard hat on the table should have tipped us off…) and he is managing the building of a brand new 32 story Hilton hotel directly across the street from the pizza place. It was an interesting experience and quite enjoyable to share lunch with a stranger.
As we were right next to Macy's we went in to take a quick ride on the wooden escalators - next to the annual flower show, the best part of Macy's!
Thanks Lyndee for a wonderful day!
