Picnic in Central Park
Sometimes you walk around NYC on a spring day and in the distance you hear a saxophone playing and you can't figure out if you're imagining it because you feel like you're in an actual movie or if NY is just really that magical and what you are hearing is real life. You could say that this day was out of a movie. Cole and I decided to head up to Central park for a picnic and I have to say it couldn't have been more perfect. We found a little plot of grass right by the water and set up shop. Of course the more company the better and so my two cousins came as well. We stayed as the sun started to fall behind the trees. Hours of talking and people watching. Free entertainment from a guitarist who passed through, a man with bag pipes, and a group of 70 year olds doing interpretive dance. I think that's one of my favorite parts of this city, things are just always happening.
Our picnic included fresh cherries, meets and cheeses, fig jam, a french baguette, watermelon, berries, chip and salsa, and perrier, just a big pile of perfection. I realized as we sat down and started pulling things out of the bags that our entire picnic was red haha I didn't even realize it was possible for there to be that much red food. I think I just might have to make this a tradition, heading to the park for a picnic. Central Park is really just one of the most incredible places, everyone is happy, spending time with friends, there are millions of people around you yet you feel like it's peaceful and relaxing.
Cheers to Spring everyone!
