Destination: NYC

This weekend was not spent near a cabin on the lake or on a quiet cove at the beach, and as inviting as these two destinations sound a few of us hit the pavement in NYC visiting museums before exhibits left the city on July 29th. Arriving late on Friday due to traffic, we settled into “Gotham’s” rhythm and spent the evening in SoHo shopping at a few of our favorite haunts.

Last night after dinner we walked the High Line {about 1.45 miles} in the Meat Packing District, which has a unique vantage. A park built on disused land on the former NY Central Railroad lines. You can walk viewing art, and seeing new buildings created by talented architects.

Travel stylishly,

Summer Adventures

Summertime, and the livin’ is easy …. NOT.!! Lately, life has been a whirlwind of events, workshops and chores. It is taking every ounce of strength to make it from one day to the next. In the community kids are out of school, most of the neighborhood is dark as families are on holiday, and co-workers are basking in resorts along the mid-Atlantic coast.

Time is not a luxury I can afford so, I have begun to plan day and/or weekend trips to relax and clear my mind of daily task over the summer. My birthday is this weekend so, a planned trip to NYC is in order. More information will be forthcoming, but let me share what has been taking place on previous weekends this month around Washington, DC.

Lunch with family and friends {Maria and me} a few weeks back at Joe’s Seafood on 15th Street, after a morning in The National Museum of African American History and Culture.
When relaxing, food is always a high priority so, when sightseeing it is imperative to stop for a few hors d’oeuvres and a glass of wine or martini.

The National Air and Space Museum hosted a brief exhibition to celebrate the 50thanniversary of Stanley Kubrick’s film, 2001: A Space Odyssey. Simon Birch a Hong Kong based British artist designed the Barmecide Feast using drawings from the detailed original set. Truly, this was a most surreal environment that had been depicted in the film and setup for the public to view.

Well, I am off to pack, as I must be up early for trip to New York City in the morning!!!

Stay stylish,
K
