After a walk at Halibut Point State Park this morning we headed to Sugar Magnolias, a favorite restaurant on Main Street in Gloucester.
Egg, goat cheese, arugula & fig preserves breakfast sandwich on multi-grain bread..YUM!

March 30~April 1 QUEENS, NYC

My son lives in Queens. We spent the week-end, interesting place.

Queens is the easternmost of the five boroughs of New York City and the largest in area and the second-largest in population.

Queens is the most ethnically diverse urban area in the world with a population of over 2.2 million, 46% of whom are foreign-born, representing over 100 different nations and speaking over 138 different languages.[1][2]

Queensboro Bridge looking toward Manhattan, also known as the 59th Street Bridge.
Slow down, you move too fast.
You got to make the morning last.
Just kicking down the cobble stones.
Looking for fun and feelin' groovy.

Sugar cane being sold on the street, samples were available.

We saw lots of places like this which we wished were still in business, also many
new places that point towards Long Island City/Astoria as the next hip place.

I take pictures of bikes!

Lighthouse Park on Roosavelt Island
There's a bridge from LIC and it's a great place for a run.
