Thanksgiving in the City
|The view from my husbands cousins apartment in Battery Park - which she and her husband graciously let us occupy, and for which we are extremely grateful.|
Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. The celebration featured approximately 8,000 participants including more 1,600 cheerleaders and dancers, twelve marching bands, and an assortment of celebrities in addition to 15 giant character balloons. Snow flurries started as we were waiting for the parade to start, adding to the overall festive atmosphere.
holiday window displays and awe inspiring buildings festooned with twinkling lights are true works of art. So much to see, so little time! Click here for a link to an amazing slide show of window displays.
Christmas Eve Snowfall
All bundled up, we took a walk down to the beach to check out and photograph our winter wonderland.

The Old Cavalier displayed in her wintry glory.
Snow added an artistic element to portraits and scenery
And made our sweet dog long for a warm spot in front of the fireplace.
As our day came to an end and the snow continued to fall.
