another busy day, but tons of fun…

we had cold pressed juice for breakfast at the hotel and then broke into two groups… two went with their main goal shopping for gifts for those at home… we went out with a plan to see Eatalia and take a walk on the High Line

we started out and stopped by the 9/11 memorial where we took a few pictures… was very interested in the story of the survivor tree which was found buried in the rubble, moved to a nursery, damaged in a storm and replanted on the grounds and is thriving

  
the sun shining on this rose with the huge sculptural dove in the background came out beautifully… 

we stopped at a rather high end mall and found a Tory Burch bracelet for my Fitbit… I am so excited about this because I have only seen them online and wasn’t sure of the sizing so hadn’t wanted to order one… the young woman who helped us provided great service and was able to find a single silver one in the store which fit perfectly… 

  
so it was my present to me… when she heard it was my birthday she gave me a great deal

my plan for the day included taking as many flower pictures as possible, so I was happy to come across this flower shop…

  
there was a tulip festival taking place and some beautiful purple and orange ones jumped out at me…

  
a nice picture of the Flat Iron Building with my daughter and a blooming cherry tree in Madison Park… just before we headed into Eatalia

  
what fun we had there wandering through all of the sections and having a spectacular lunch… 

didn’t see Mario though, lol…

from there we found our fifth chocolate shop of the trip… and picked up a few items to bring home… and while we were there we shared a piece of coconut chocolate birthday cake which was delicious… this from a person who isn’t fond of cake, lol…

  
on to the High Line which we walked for about half an hour… hot and sunny the whole way…

  
met up with the other two girls, had a snack and headed to the airport… shared a delicious birthday supper at Prime and made it onto the plane for the first leg of our flight…

  

our second flight got us home just after midnight…

most everyone we met was welcoming, informative and provided excellent service…

we walked, rode the subway, took taxis and flew, all in one day…

so many memories of four days in the Big Apple and the many little bites we took…
