Many rules, much musical

These lovely water lilies are in Central Park.

Aren’t they pretty?

There was a proposal going on four feet from us as I was taking these pictures. Don’t live in NYC, you can’t propose to your girlfriend without six tourists within a 6 foot radius.

Anybody know what these flowers are? I like them. Think they’ll grow in NM? Probably not, looks like the require water and they also look like they would be delicious to rabbits and other rodents.

Lauren, the intrepid explorer, has located a reservoir. Which you may ONLY jog around and ONLY in one direction. Don’t even think about bringing your dog or walking. There are SO many rules, I don’t know how people keep track.

We went to the Met, which was gigantic. And sorta boring, because it was an art museum, and that’s how they are.

They did have some suits of armor though, so it wasn’t a complete loss.

Boating in Central Park! What could be more romantic? I’ll tell you what: going boating somewhere else where you don’t have to wait in what appeared to be a several hour long line to pay lots of money for the privilege of rowing around a muddy pond for 20 minutes with 25 other romantic boating couples. Curmudgeon much?

Next we went to Times Square yet AGAIN and stood in line and actually bought musical tickets, then wandered roughly north and saw some famous locations. And did more shopping. Shopping is not exactly my favorite, but I did manage to buy something – a sweater, because we weren’t planning on going back to the hotel before the musical and I was wearing shorts and a tank top. That’s my souvenir from my NYC trip. I fail at shopping.

And THEN. After a gigantic burger for dinner, we went to see Phantom of the Opera.

Look at how excited they are! It was incredible. Best musical I’ve ever seen. Fulfilled goal #3 of my trip. Must be time to go home.
