Yup, it sure was! Was it miserable? Yeah pretty much... not only did my shoes fill up with water immediately but it put everyone in an awful mood and I actually had people hit me with their umbrellas...smack my umbrella away...dump water on me from their umbrellas...not to mention the cab shortage...
I tried multiple times to get cabs and either they wanted to charge a ridiculous amount of money to go a mile and half (and I paid it)...or they were shady and didn't have numbers or anything on their cars..or they flat out said NO! that's too far (I wanted to go roughly 2 miles away)...so I walked...and I walked...and I walked...with puddles inside my shoes...Not a good time. All in all I walked about 21,000 steps yesterday which is over 10 miles...insane!
Today I'm hobbling around and pretty much all I've done is watch TV...so much for my crazy to-do list!
Anyway, it wasn't ALL bad - I did make it to the two story Anthropologie that I love:
I also got to see The Tree:
This one is also lovely
I was able to capture some photos of my favorite churches, I just love the Gothic architecture:
My favorite macarons - Laduree:
I got this cute little nutcracker box and found out later a portion of the sale goes to charity. Pretty cool - especially since they cost a small fortune.
I took a break at Starbucks and had my favorite holiday drink (Caramel Apple Spice)...and changed my socks in the bathroom...although as soon as I went outside again they were soaked...sigh...
Here are a few random shots around the city (some of my favorite storefronts - Tifanny's!, art, and some really beautiful estate jewelry in a window of an antique store):
I had lunch at Trump tower again - mainly because it was close, I knew what to expect and they have good bathrooms :)
Plus this drink is amazing - Mar-a-lago
I also made it back to Fishs Eddy and this time it wasn't SO crowded that I couldn't even move - although I did give this guy a dirty look for almost knocking me into a pile of glassware...who does that?
I was really looking forward to shopping here and I picked up a few things for my kitchen that I really love
Before heading back to the bus (by way of walking 3,000 blocks) - I cut through Times Square and snapped a few photos on my phone (all of the photos above are from my phone too while balancing my umbrella so please forgive any blurriness!).
I especially like this one that I switched over to B&W... makes the *#*@$*@# rain almost look artistic...lol
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
