We are gathered here today...

Magnet #1310 - Garden at Sainte-Adresse

Monet painted Garden at Sainte-Adresse during the summer of 1867, using family members as models. I picked it for today, because the idyllic setting reminds me of our walk through Central Park.

After spending the morning sitting through a nutritional immunology conference (don't ask, but it was actually pretty interesting), we decided to run up to the Upper East Side for a quick GoBurger visit to test out their milkshakes. They were pretty good - especially with the Kahlua and chocolate liquor.

After lunch, we found we had absolutely nothing to do.

If you know me at all, you know I'm usually never without anything to do in NYC. We decided to make our way through Central Park, a place that my friend has been to, but never really explored. So when I found out she hadn't been to Belvedere Castle after having grown up in New York City (yes, Brooklyn counts), of course we had to drop by.

While we were up in the towers of Belvedere, we totes ran into a wedding! Or rather, they totes ran into us. I mean, c'mon! That only happens in NYC. All of a sudden, we weren't just tourists running around the park, but we were now part of the intimate group of friends of the bride and groom.

What? Have a wedding in one of the largest urban parks in the world, yeah, you'll have an audience of strangers!
Pin It!
