"Back o' my neck gettin' dirty and gritty ..."
We try to just ignore the heat as much as possible and get outdoors, anyway. Jeff is still riding his bike to work, although he doesn't always take a trip around Central Park before he goes to the office (especially on a day like today, when it's 7 a.m. and nearly 80 degrees already--and humid!).
We have been spending a lot of time in Central Park on the weekends (all these photos were taken there). It's such a fun place. There is even a kiddie amusement park there now; in the wintertime, it's a skating rink.
It's still a bit strange to us to see this beautiful park in the middle of all these high-rises--and this pond, complete with flowering plants, ducks, turtles and fish, literally right in front of some buildings. Strangely beautiful.
