Happy New York Year to all our customers, friends, colleagues and family! I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas and New Year?
Here at Rosy Rosie we enjoyed a different sort of holiday this year. Instead of slouching around at home eating mince pies, playing silly board games, 666Casino games and catching up with friends – we jetted off to New York!
The weather was great; Cold (I bought a Bobble Hat!) but with beautiful blue skies so we were able to walk everywhere – often over five miles every day to see all the sites (Rockefeller Centre, Empire State Building, Liberty & Ellis Island, Guggenheim, Central Park, Circle Line Tour, Moma, Ground Zero 9/11 memorial – and many more!)
We were particularly impressed with our little seven year old who managed wonderfully with all the walking – though we did set her up each morning with plenty of New York style breakfasts (pancakes)! Oh and rewarded both the children with a trip to Dylans Candy store – an amazing sweet shop. Heaven for children. Nightmare for parents and dentists!
Like any city, it is only by walking do you catch all the details of a place – and I entertained myself by spotting some New York ‘r’s for my Pinterest Board ‘R – my favourite letter.’
New York was still in it’s Christmas finery – gosh those stores know how to decorate a window and how to use theatre and spectacle to entertaining effect – some of the best windows were Anthopologie, Tiffany and of course Saks which had a full scale light and sound show every ten minutes or so.
All in all it was a great trip and since our return we’ve had lots of fun creating a family scrap book so we can remember it forever…..
