We got into the Beacon Hotel very late after along journey we now think it may have been due to flooding, before we went to our rooms we had a Canadian Club and ginger I think we needed that. Then came to our room,showered and went to bed.
After breakfast the coach arrived to take us for a City tour...however when it arrived with the lady tour guide there was something wrong ...it was making a very funny noise. Off we went for a walking tour through Central Park . Oh boy was it hot and humid I was sweating buckets !!!!
After a while the coach had been mended and we were on track with the tour, then we did a river cruise going all around the Statue of Liberty which we both had seen before, no matter we enjoyed it very much.
Then went walking again this time to a place named High line , it was very similar to Borough maker with lots of food stall, Doris and myself had Brisket sandwich which was so tender!!!! After a while took to walking the route Ian had planned for the 26 of us, then walked on and on and it got to much for my little legs so we left the tour and took Rickshaw if you could have seen us sitting in the back of this vehicle with this guy peddling in the traffic in and out with yellow cabs ...buses.... Cars all around us we were hanging on for dear life but for me it was better than walking.
Doris got in a panic and said: look at him sweating I bet he has never had such a heavy load to carry; so I said why what have you got in your handbag ...boom boom !!!! We met the rest of the gang in a brewery more by luck than chance as we didn't have a clue were it was Ian had mention 43rd st. But this guy found it and we payed him with an extra 5 dollars, and guess wot our crew were all in there and happy to see us. We had beer Red Roaster which was very refreshing, we chatter with every one and other people standing by us then made our on the Metro and got back to our Hotel, we bought a bottle of CC
( Canadian Club) also ginger, I was knackered so stayed in Doris went off for a walk about! Came back an hour later and forgot her key !!!! So we are have had a couple of CCs and that's all from me going to sleep now another big day in The big apple tomorrow . Xxx
Tomorrow there is a Gay Parade here in New York ....that why so many more people are here, 2million extra!!!! I will try and keep Doris away from it, xx
