NY rambles

I’ve decided to become a hiker. Americans are all about hiking. My sister, Anna, her friend Clara (but people call her Bean, naturally) and I ventured out of the city last weekend to get our hike on. Now, this was my second hike in the great country of the U.S of A and I’ve think it was more of a ramble than a hike. Mainly because I didn’t really sweat or have to think about where I was going. I just followed our totally capable and extremely well prepared tour guide. Please note – that is not said tour guide in the photo below – that’s Anny. Our version of prepared was ensuring we had a plentiful supply of totally perishable but extremely tasty food for lunch. Prosciutto anyone?

    1. All good here – Keith’s turns 60 tomorrow (4/7) so we’re having a fine dining experience for him tomorrow night – very small – 6 of us! He’s feeling very old at the thought of that number! Take care, lots of love. Keep those gorgeous photos coming! xxx
