Last weekend was great. A little exhausting, but even more wonderful. Friends we hadn’t seen in almost three years visited us from Germany. And on top of having a good time simply hanging out, talking, cooking, running and bicycling, of course, we went to New York City. Pretty relaxed though, because they had been there before. So, it was not a question of which tourist attractions to we all fit in, but more like ‘yeah, why don’t we walk a little bit around Greenwich Village. Highline Park, right, haven’t been there yet. And the 911 Memorial is open. Maybe we’ll make it there. And if not – oh well.’ We had an awesome time.

Even more so for me. Not only did I get to be together with friends, but to take photos. With them and of them, those ‘of them’ I will publish in a later post. For today, I will show you the wonderful cloud reflections we experienced last Friday. What gorgeous weather we had! Sunny, warm, but not extremely hot or humid, just nice. I couldn’t believe how lucky we got. Knowing how sticky it can get in the City…

We started off the day in New York, by parking around the corner from Chelsea Market, where we grabbed a freshly made sandwich to eat it somewhere at the Highline Park. And we did. We walked the Park from south to north and half way back enjoying the architecture right next to flowers, plants and trees along with lots of other people. Actually not as many as on weekends. And the clouds were starting to form quite nicely as you can see.

And after wandering through a lot of smaller and bigger streets in Chelsea and Greenwich Village we finally did end up at the 911 Memorial. Having been there before, I was pretty much blown away by the gorgeous clouds reflecting in all the skyscraper windows. Most especially the Freedom Tower itself.
