Things I like about NYC #3: Bridges

The bridges

The bridges

With the weather still good, we set out to walk from Manhattan to Brooklyn on the Brooklyn Bridge – and back via the Manhattan Bridge.
 

Both bridges are spectacular… On the Brooklyn, pedestrians have a raised walkway – looking down on the cars (as it should be). That’s if you can take your eyes away from the spectacular views.

More Than Just the Music

I spent last weekend at Glastonbury festival… and it didn’t rain!!!! Yea!!

The music was just great – but the Glasto fun doesn’t stop there… particularly not for an imaginative romance writer…

I spent a day in the circus fields… what fun that was. Thanks to all the performers who took the time to talk to me.
