Part 5 of Rather Long Trip Report

OK i'm off food for a while. Next morning awake at 3am so text my wonderful ( babysitting ) mother and children ( also wonderful ) back in UK to give them an update on our adventures.Then make rough plan for day, never made proper itinerary, just list of things we'd like to see. Made a good study of subway system and decided must give it a try.

6am had noisy bath to try and persuade sleeping beauty to wake up ( surely he can sleep in UK seems a waste to do it here ! ). Went out about 7.30 past Dakota building and into Central Park ( by the way i love UWS-thanks again Bettina ). Weather stunning, sunny and clear, indescribably lovely ( need to look in thesaurus, run out of superlatives ) Saw imagine mosaic, no one else there so that was cool. Got fab photo of lake with buildings reflected in it and then onto Belvedere Castle for another perfect view. Must go to bed now, 2.33......

Thank Daisiegee too.... we're both UWS fans. By the way, did you say you walked through the park to get to EJ's? You know there's one on the UWS too, on Amsterdam at 81st-82nd?

Thankyou Daisiegee for the UWS and the merit badge,it's my first! I meant that that we entered on the west side walked a bit along and came out the same side, we went to the one on Amsterdam, didn't know there were any more.

Fantastic, i'm working on BH for a return trip. My latest angle is to fly into NY and drive to North Carolina to visit his friends there, it's a long shot but it might just work
