Jeanne and Mercedes did a good job with the news and weather, and we all squeezed in for a group photo….
Next stop…. Tea and a Tour of Gracie Mansion,
Home to the Mayor of NYC
Mollie opened her beautiful apartment to the whole group for an afternoon
gathering. One of the highlights was watching the recorded Katie Couric Show
together, pausing and cheering every time the audience (us!) appeared!
Our last day started with another tour…
even though St. Patrick's Cathedral was encased with scaffolding
and the construction noise only reminded me of our flat in London,
it was worth seeing.
We made our way to the Sea Grill Restaurant in Rockefeller Center
a fabulous lunch of Crab Cakes, Key Lime Pie,
and a close-up view of the ice rink
with the world-famous Christmas Tree!
In the spirit of Christmas, the 4-day trip culminated with
the high kicks of the Rockettes …….
Cosmos and dinner at
Our AWC of London first reunion in NYC
was fantastic, jam packed with events, but the time we spent with
friends was precious. If there is something I have learned in all my
moves and travels,
it's that you have to be willing to work at staying close
with the people who have come in and out of your life and touched you in a special way.
I, for one, will be looking forward to the next
Thank you Jeanne!!!
