Lovin’ New York

 

There is so much to do and see while in New York. Even 7 days in the city flew by with us wishing we had more time.

5B2C2415-291D-4596-B027-31B9A5176707

Here are a few fun things to do while in New York.

Greenwich Village Le Poisson Rouge has great food, good drinks.

5641512B-9C7B-43A6-9B88-D6CBC2885C0EThe night Thor and Friends was the featured band.

510528D6-7939-47E1-9C27-A9E0B9485191

We enjoyed their unique sound and haunting melodies that kept the audience mesmerized.

D8C3645F-7799-4D26-88D0-2EF33BE93D3B

Greenwich Village has a whole different vibe getting off the subway felt like stepping back into time to the late sixties.

FC3DAEEC-A0BD-494E-88D1-F11DC70061E8

Great music, fun people and delicious pizza are what you will find in The Village.

Museum of Natural Science –

4001F814-22EA-40BB-BF5E-AAD6F6D9437F

Our visit turned into a Night at The Museum scavenger hunt.

ECA413E5-5CFE-4778-9F19-866616DB6710

We found a few of the displays from the movie such as Tiki Head.

97B0AF60-CECE-465A-9A5C-9EBB75E9226A

Don got to sit with Teddy Roosevelt for a chat about the great out doors.

099F99E4-F2E2-4D50-AFD8-806AABE9904B
When you go to this museum or the Metropolitan Museum of Art they have suggested prices listed outside, but you only have to pay what you can afford.

Radio City Music Hall Tour –

38553B7B-5DA8-4B12-A0A0-9D1D6BE582F8.jpeg

This 75 minute tour takes you on an incredible backstage tour that includes seeing costumes

meeting with a Rockette.

20124E08-E3DF-49A1-9B49-28AA6D7D4F3B

Hearing the history of the building and those who built it.


From the incredible bathrooms to the apartment built for the former manager in the 1920’s.

This our was well worth the $26.00 price tag and kept us inside warm and dry.

Be sure to ask to hear the story of why the elephant had to climb the stairs.

997DFC4C-2D24-4F5A-8AEC-0809FF68C8F7
Our tour guide Joyce was fun and knowledgeable and made us feel as if we were living the experience.

E71D6049-211A-4DCB-916B-18A19555EFFF

Hamilton An American Musical –

So we saw his portrait at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and his grave at Trinity Church. But I wanted Don to have the chance to see the show that he so generously had sent all of us to.

0C1DF876-54C8-4AC0-869E-C92C50D86D1B

So we walked over to the Rogers Theater and asked again if they had tickets.

2BE7156E-693F-402A-9CF5-294063EBAEFA

This time the answer was not only YES but they were tickets in the 9th row and for face value.

A51B719F-82A1-45A3-9A9B-79202D17A3BC
The Broadway show was fabulous, and the theater is beautiful.


Later we found out theaters have occasional cancellations and sometimes have tickets at the door. Don’t go to New York and count on getting tickets to your favorite show, but know it is a possible option.

96D9A5FB-5574-4254-8264-8791E4011F97

Central Park Carriage Rides – You can book a carriage ride on line and there are a variety of prices. The average price is about $150.00 on line for an hour.

E7C931D2-AC02-408F-BFA5-BA5104E0FC7F

We found that just going up to the park that the drivers will offer you a pretty good deal for much less if they are having a quiet night or day.

F94DC762-18ED-48E2-BB61-D69747F2FC51

Our driver Ishmael and his horse Scooby gave us a lovely moonlit tour of the park, pointing out several landmarks during our ride.

66086E1E-6D05-4AEF-87F9-A7C71BCB429E

Church –

There is no shortage of churches in the area. But St. Patricks Cathedral on 5th Avenue is a true experience.

They offer many times for Mass throughout the day so many that as we were leaving one Mass they were starting the next one.

4001960F-B5F1-47FA-878D-DFB8791240AB.jpeg

Of course while in New York, we had to visit Fox News.

924CDCCB-85FE-41FA-873F-653616C3CF98

Just to give Don the feeling we had taken him to The Mother Ship.

EB04A167-8523-476E-AD61-EEF6D6AC521D

We even had a Homer Simpson spotting.

51FDE32A-54F1-45AD-BCF8-33FBAFE23752

New York is a unique beautiful city, whether your cheering on the runners for The New York City Marathon.

CE7BBAD9-E1C0-445B-8493-07A4982A47A4

looking for fun photo ops

or just traveling the subway

there is always something fun to see no matter how often we visit.

In A Quiet Iowa Cornfield

In a quiet cornfield in Iowa there is a simple tribute to The Big Bopper (JP Richardson), Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and Roger Peterson, four men who died in a tragic plane crash February 3, 1959

33F82CD0-A699-4D00-B036-8F856232C964

The crash is a true testament to how a simple act of fate can change a life.

BB8AFB43-A3A6-4DD4-A395-3B3BAB77D5E7

The Big Bopper had the flu, so Waylon Jennings gave him his spot on the plane, and Tommy Allsup lost a coin flip with Richie Valens.  Neither Tommy nor Waylon could know giving up those seats would save their lives.

55F871A8-BADF-4E87-B530-683E76D93054

 

The memorial is neither showy nor fancy, 3 simple records and wings for the pilot, a wind vane made of cake pans and a few treasures that fans have left over the years.

AD23CD8B-03AE-44ED-9E33-1A35BB7B39D8

I was so impressed how well maintained the pathway was, the grass from the road to the memorial was mowed and green.

9AB32852-6DB8-4652-B321-A8ED559BDA9C

Its a beautiful yet sad reminder of an event that changed the course of music and left us wondering where these men would be today if they had chosen to stay on the bus.

68A51D15-A85B-46C5-9FD8-B5B41AD1F6FE

Its a long drive through endless cornfields, there is no fee to get it.  Put 22728 Gull Ave., Clear Lake, IA into your GPS.  Park near the Buddy Holly Glasses near the side of the road and walk about 1/4 mile through the cornfield to the memorial.  

735CC164-C30F-41C2-B1C7-E40927241322

Be respectful of the surrounding area, some very kind farmer is allowing the public to walk through his fields, show him the same respect he shows for these great musicians and their fans by memorializing  the day and place that the music died.

Georgia O’Keefe and Abiquiu

If you love Georgia O’Keefe art or if you just want to see beautiful mountains then go to the little town of Abiquiu, New Mexico and visit Georgia O’Keefe’s beautiful home and surrounding property.

9D971279-567D-41AC-942A-2957F7E19A35

Near the Abiquiu Inn you can purchase tickets ($35.00) that includes the shuttle bus drive over, a knowledgeable guide (we had brilliant Brenda) who knew all things Georgia and had a true passion not only for her art but knew about the beautiful little town and natural back drop that surrounded the home.

C5502A62-4138-45A3-A204-F27146BF9336

The home is very simple, almost sparse, but the true beauty comes from the views one gets from the enormous picture windows that are in every room.

2B2AE92F-E6EE-4E22-A5E8-076A27EB935D

Our guide would hold up pictures of paintings, then point to the inspiration that Georgia had to inspire her.

CE658654-A0E5-405C-B04B-1F155A322301

I knew very little about this iconic artist prior to my visit to Abiquiu, but now I not only know more about her, but I have an appreciation for the way that she captured the beauty in everything from spectacular mountains, to small doors.

We were told stories of how she used all the fruits and vegetables in her meals, this woman was no starving artist, yet she made sure everything in her garden was put to use and that she could not use immediately was canned and saved.

 

They do not allow photographs to be taken in the home, but you may take as many pictures of the surrounding property as you wish.

BBC679C4-6E71-4E3D-B08C-82281A9FA931

After your tour, if your hungry visit The Cafe Abiquiu, the menu is filled with delicious looking meals, I chose the Grilled Cheese Sandwich with tomatoes made panini style.

Wonderful day with my dear friends Patrice and Elizabeth plus a delicious meal, who could ask for more!

In a serene park in the middle of Oklahoma City, there sits 168 empty chairs.

3603BEAF-D0A5-47AB-AAD8-BC915FD70681

     The chairs face a reflecting pool between to large walls, one wall says 9:01 the other 9:03.
     It’s all very simple but the impact is enormous.  At the base of each chair is the name of one of the victims of The Oklahoma City Bombing,
1B0E78C5-C63D-4575-B6B5-82C151D2D725
 If you close your eyes you can almost imagine them sitting as people pass by hoping that what visitors see and experience will somehow help to heal any anger they have in their hearts making the world a more peaceful place.
D1EBB1F8-27B0-44C9-B2F8-AE493301F43F
     This memorial is all about healing. 9:01 signifies the innocence of the city before the bomb went off, and 9:03 signifies the time that the healing began.
C6509D4A-BE1E-41F3-B37B-3FD36438CE14
An enormous oak tree, named The Survivors Tree provides shade and a place to reflect for visitors,   This tree was once called an eyesore, but with love is now beautiful and purposeful.
If you visit, take time to go into the museum, where you  not only hear the story of the tragic events of April 19, 1995, but you also hear about how the world came together to try to help the survivors, the victims families and the  city.  We were a world at its best and worst following the tragedy. The stories you hear will change your life.

 

     We had less then 24 hours to see as much of Oklahoma City as possible and while we only scratched the surface of this town, we did take in a few sights.
The State Capitol.
Historical Automobile Alley
Bricktown
A few innings of baseball from out room at the Bricktown Hampton Inn
BF92BEEC-1739-4018-B363-979C2BCF3A99
The Oklahoma City / Bricktown Riverwalk.
It looks remarkably like the San Antonio riverwalk.
8E5BD197-630C-4632-87D6-A00736D81AE2
(Is this where the old San Antonio River barges went?)
     In our challenge to spend at least one night in all 50 states, Oklahoma surprised me the most.
“We know we belong to the land..and the the land we belong to is grand!”

The Church of The Primacy of St. Peter, also known as The Place of Coals, located on The Sea of Galilee, this small church is the site of where Jesus instructed Peter to throw his net back on the other side when he was having a bad fishing day, Peter did as he was told and turned out catching 153 fish.

Cana & The Basilica of Anunciation

March 13, 2018 Day 3

In the afternoon we went to the church at Cana.

4AF94C62-DD07-4C7C-9C07-ADFB282211A2
I know most people think of Cana and associate it with marriage. When I think of the Miracle at Cana, I think obedience and faith in our children.
There Jesus was, having a good time, at this wedding reception and His mom asks Him to perform a miracle.
Initially He tried to tell her no, He wasn’t ready for that yet.
But His mom made a request and because He was a good obedient son, He agreed.
So came The Miracle at Cana, with Jesus turning water to wine.

7616B0BC-59C6-4F2C-9B3E-5731A4798083
I love that this miracle happened at a wedding reception, no one was sick, no one had died, the only thing the couple wanted was to have a happy marriage and the blessing of children.

7A21B372-7F9D-4570-B22C-39403702A522

They did not realize that among their wedding guests was The Messiah, if they had I am sure they would have asked for a blessing. Jesus and His Mother wanted this couple to get a good start with their marriage and not be stuck with the stigma of being “that couple who ran out of wine at their reception” (don’t accept dinner invitations from them). That over site made their marriage one of the most famous weddings ever (and we don’t even know their names.)

B69CF2E2-1392-4374-BE30-2888C5320F66
The Church at Cana has become a popular spot to renew wedding vows, and thank God for the miracle of marriage and love.

FC610745-308E-4A6D-92D3-2AC8443B8E03.jpeg
I personally feel that I can use all the blessings I can get, and Father Pat was kind enough to allow me to include Don via phone, so with the other couples we had another opportunity to continue to vow to love and honor each other.Father Pat even splashed my phone with Holy Water for good measure.

B117748F-F005-4742-BF65-FEE3ECF47209
Wedding vows are among the most sacred words couples ever say, repeating them in public now and then is good for us.

9121EC90-8EBC-4AB4-BC06-6BD8EB2FD4B9
While visiting I took the opportunity to pray upcoming marriage of my daughter Liz and her wonderful fiancé Eddie.

219B7D54-3B22-4BA6-B2C3-F1DF2C18D0F2
The church is very simple, not at all ornate. There is a small chapel and a large sanctuary. Outside there is a courtyard where you can imagine newlyweds rushing through while having rice or whatever is politically correct to toss at them thrown at the time.

6A8131B1-563D-4966-9B83-D1D75767FC2C

From Cana we travelled to Nazareth, the place it all started.

2459A623-10CF-405D-9414-289C514BE530

This is where Mary says yes to The Angel of The Lord and agrees to be the mother of the child who would change our world forever.

F38064D6-2F34-4FB3-A30E-51B8B811355D
The spot where the Angel came to Mary is simple yet beautiful. Looking into the room you could almost see the glow of the angel (it may have been the lighting), I had an overwhelming feeling of peace and joy when I stood looking (that was not the lights.).

5D74A7D6-6596-4B57-854B-AEC03F7D0F6A

Mary who was really just a child by today’s standards was so pure and trusting in her faith, to see an angel and agree to a task that not only changed the world, but changed her life, and in the beginning not for the better. Then for Joseph to believe and accept her and Jesus loving both of them without question was one of the worlds greatest testimony’s to faith.

7106F8E9-F6D4-4041-9D6F-74D874376B83
The Basilica of the Annunciation is huge, if you visit take plenty of time to see all the artwork inside and out of the building. There is artwork from every country showing their depiction of Mary.

2DA919DB-D002-438D-8DF6-FBFF2446FE1D

They are all very different all beautiful in their own way.
The church grounds cover the area they believe was the small town of Nazareth more then 2000 years ago.

4DD963ED-B491-4A45-BC0E-F194C38CA853
The air was growing cooler and the sun was starting to set as we boarded our bus for Tiberias and our hotel for the night Galei Kinnereth

0C36BC4F-F7DB-495A-9D59-65C6AD03FC1F

This beautiful hotel is located on the shores of The Sea of Galilee.
I went to sleep knowing the next day would be a wonderful day filled with stories, new lessons and beautiful sights that will humble and amaze us all.

It was dark when we arrived at The Ramada Inn Hadera Resort Monday Night. I was exhausted from our 2 days of travel but felt like a child on Christmas Eve, hardly sleeping as I was anxious to start our tour.

Our room had a balcony and I could not wait for morning to see our view, I was not disappointed, the first sunlight sparkling on the Mediterranean Sea was stunning.
Breakfast at the hotel was a buffet with fish, cheese, fruits, vegetables, fresh juice and pastry.


Energized and excited about our first day, we ate a delicious breakfast and were on our way.

Usama our guide was a wealth of knowledge and shared with us the history of the places we would be visiting that day.

First stop was Caesarea and the ruins of an ancient port city built by Herod.

While there Marshall showed us what he would have looked like in ancient times.


We also had the opportunity to see the ruins of old toilets, that again Marshall was happy to be the model for.

We had the chance to put our feet and hands in the Mediterranean Sea, and look out at the beautiful blue sea from the ruins that were once a thriving city.

Next we stopped at The Church of Stella Maris (Star of the Sea) a tiny beautiful church that was built over Elijahs Cave.

This is the place where Elijah heard the “still small voice of God.”

I felt a tremendous sense of peace and spirituality in the small cave under the altar, but no whispers from God.

Journey to Israel

Journey To Israel

Nearly twenty four hours after leaving San Antonio we flew into Tel Aviv, Israel. The city sparkled in the night sky and seemed like a beacon in the darkness that we had flown through from Germany.
From the sky it looked like every other city I had ever flown into at night, freeways filled with cars, some areas lit while others were dark. There were houses, hotels and businesses all with their signs bright enough to be seen from the night sky.
There were tall skyscrapers and hills that were lit up. The tower at the airport had revolving lights spinning in the night sky letting those who came in the Israeli airspace know they were serious about keeping their country safe.

We had taken a bus from San Antonio to Houston, then in Houston we boarded our Lufthansa flight, the largest plane I had ever been in, that surprisingly had some of the smallest passenger seats I had ever squeezed into, for our 9 hour flight to Frankfurt, Germany. Though the seats were small, the company was excellent, and the tiny space became a cozy gathering of friends.

We had a five hour layover in Frankfurt then finally we boarded our flight to Tel Aviv. where we witnessed on the plane the devoted faith of Rabbi’s on the flight.

Some of us stopped at the Welcome to Israel sign for a quick selfie.
