Joy, in one of the turrets of Belvedere Castle, a Victorian "Folly" designed by Calvert Vaux (the genius behind Central Park) as a stunning backdrop for the views of the Park. The National Weather Service commandeered the Castle's tower in 1919 as a good location to measure wind-speed, precipitation, etc. which it still does today. The Castle also currently serves as Nature Observatory.

I enjoy the top of Belvedere Castle for it's great views of the City and Central Park (and Joy).

The Metropolitan Museum of Art, which was greatly enjoyed by this artist, but not by her feet. I think Joy and I managed to see just about everything the museum has in just 2 1/2 hours (it was probably the equivalent of a 5K !)

The whole trip was a fantastic experience for both Joy and I. We made lots of very special memories, and we appreciate Kelly so much for making it all possible (and for the great lunches she packs!) THANKS KELLY!
