The first week of our trip was always going to be a chilled one, we planned to do very little and recharge the batteries after a busy couple of months.
We explored the area and wandered around all the posh shops. The Art Deco frontage of Bergdorf Goodman always impresses me, although we stuck to window shopping as Mr S once fell in love with a $1,000 scarf in there (I didn’t let him buy it, mean wife).
Luckily the window shopping was so imaginative that it didn’t matter. Has anyone else noticed that birds seem to be everywhere?
Our hotel was so close to Central Park it would’ve been criminal not to enjoy it, so we headed off with a picnic prepared by our hotel, and spent the day lazing on the grass. It was lovely to get the chance to explore the park at a leisurely pace as we usually just walk through it once a trip. I made the most of having the time and something lovely to sketch.
I can’t believe our first week is over and that we are now experiencing the completely different city of Miami and soaking up the sun.
