A Half Day of Lasts

We had our ride to the airport booked for twelve-thirty so had to decide how to use our last half day.  Bob & Liz chose Central Park.

Why just juggle?  Why just run?  Why not juggle and run?
I headed over to Washington Square and Greenwich Village.

Saturday morning is a good time to use the subway without the usual bustle and crowding.

I let the dog paparazzi photo me in Greenwich.  The sculpture comes from Australia and was created by a husband and wife team Gillie and Marc.
I follow the Mah Zu Dahr Bakery on Instagram and stopped to see if their delicacies are as tasty as they look.
They are.
You can't see the tag clearly in the next photo, but you can buy the meringue cake for $55. 

There's a dog park at Washington Square.
This is the birdman of Washington Square.  It's not my idea of a fun hobby.
I love going down random streets and finding treasures such as this:
We may not have done things together in the morning, but we all agreed upon where we would meet for lunch ... at the NYC hot spot which is just a couple of doors from our hotel.  Chick-fil-A is new to NYC and it was packed every time we went past.

None of us had eaten at one before and we thought it was pretty good.  Maybe it wasn't up there with Carmine's or Dead Rabbit, but it was good.
We were at Rob's house in Saskatoon by 11 last night and home to Weyburn this afternoon.  

Our last night at the hotel we didn't get to sleep early because we started a conversation about what was the best - the best food, the best show, the best tourist attraction, the best conversation with a random stranger, the best surprise, etc. etc.  Already we were storing our memories.

We're home now but don't quit reading the blog as I am going to do one more post about our hotel.  I could also do a post showing our American Express bill when it comes, but I won't.  Just let us say that every penny put on it was well spent.
