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!

Weekend reflections from New York

The new World Trade Centre No1reflected in the 9/11 museum window

I found the memorial a fitting place to reflect and mourn the events of 9/11. Whilst in America the antennae was fitted which makes this building the highest in the USA as were the Twin Towers.






The two water features have been placed in the same positions as the original Towers.

The names of all those who died are stencilled into the bronze surround.



This bronze freize is outside the fire station nearest to 9/11 memorial.

  4. Very dramatic use of space in the city centre. It would feel somewhat strange/eerie visiting.
