Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Central Park

You can't go to New York without a walk around Central Park.

This is a view of the park from the Rockefeller Centre.

It took 16 years to construct the park and it opened to the public in 1876. There are a number of different water features and so you don't get confused they have been given names such as lake, reservoir, loch, pond, mere and the pool.

 There are woodland areas.

Lots of shrubs and flowers.

Beyond the trees there is no mistaking the skyscapers of New York.

And if you don't want to walk you can always get into one of the horse drawn buggies.


  1. Thank you for the lovely walk in the park!!

  2. Cool! Looks like you are having a fabulous trip!

  3. I recently saw an overlay of Central Park on Melbourne and it is absolutely huge. I expect the same would go for London.

  4. Looks like a cool place to walk around

  5. It is such a nice green oasis in the city to sit and walk around.

  6. I remember well this park ! I was impressed that in the middle of this huge city there was such a nice green space !

  7. Gorgeous! I've always wanted to walk around Central Park! Some day I will...

  8. It is a lot bigger than you think.
