Living in Europe for the last three years, and in Canada for the four before that, I'd really forgotten what a beautiful North East Fall looks like. In Europe you can swim in the ocean until October, while in Canada by Halloween you're already rocking snow boots, so there's never really an autumnal transition before winter.
In New York, and specifically, in Central Park, there certainly is. In a mere week, the whole park, originally a giant green rectangle in the middle of a city, blossoms into an explosion of reds, maroons, crimsons, oranges, yellows, ochres, and browns.
It's really beautiful.
And Kate, Mike and I picked the perfect Saturday afternoon
to rent rowboat and go for a boat ride in Central Park.
I promised I would should you final Halloween costumes, so here we are,
as redhead cartoons:
Poison Ivy (Elena), Wilma Flintstone (Julia), and Jessica Rabbit (Kim)
And the Furies (aka Goddesses of Vengeance):
Kate, Barbara, Julia
And I already have a great idea for next year, but I'm afraid I'm not at liberty to talk about it.....
Have a Wonderful Weekend!
