Water Views Around Manhattan Island: October 22, 2011

Last weekend, Yolanda and I headed into The City -- (which, of course, always means New York City!) -- to attend the wedding of our Goddaughter. Pictures from a wedding don't really belong on a blog about swimming, (unless it is the wedding of one of our swimmers!), but since I haven't posted anything new in awhile, (Since Sal's wedding, in fact!), I figured that these pictures of the waters surrounding NYC would certainly fit the "Swim Criteria"! 

They fit because several of us have done swims in the Hudson River, The East River, New York Harbor -- specifically, The Brooklyn Bridge Swim, Lady Liberty Swim, Governors Island Swim, The Little Red Lighthouse Swim etc. Enjoy the pictures AND consider joining in on one of these New York City Swims -- the views are incredible and unique!

Why were these "water" pictures taken at a wedding? Good question, and "no", I wasn't goofing off! After the 4PM ceremony and before the 6:30PM reception, we all took a water taxi tour that started at Battery Park (near the Church) and ended at South Street Seaport (near the reception). The weather was great and the sunset spectacular. Had a great time at the wedding BUT that's a post for facebook!
