Posts Tagged ‘Day trips from NYC’

Yesterday was our first real July 4th in NYC where we celebrated in the traditional (or so it seemed) American way. We were away for July 4th last year and had only been in the city for two whole days on our first official July 4th, three summers ago. This year, we were lucky enough to be invited to our friend’s pool club for the day. So we easily rented a car and escaped the city heat by driving over the George Washington Bridge and into the Palisades area, where we spent the day frolicking in the water and chillaxing in the sun. After the pool, we headed into the town of Nyack, New York to have dinner, wander the charming main street area (with a stop for ice-cream), meandering towards the water and finishing the fabulous day by viewing a spectacular show of fireworks. It was a wonderful day with friends and family. Here are some pics, hope you enjoy them. Happy Thursday 😉

To escape a bit of the heat the girls and I accepted a very generous offer to go and hang out at a friend’s house in Upstate New York. It was a nice break from the unending humidity in the City. We had a wonderful time and here are some pics from our mini- adventure. Enjoy and have a fantabulous day 😉
