Trip to NYC

We spent most of yesterday in New York, going to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, to dinner at Beacon Restaurant and to Carnegie Hall to see a production of Bernstein's Mass.

We saw some nice Monet, and Van Gogh paintingsand of course much more. We especially enjoyed Jeff Koons' sculptures, made of stainless steel.
Then we found this fellow while walking to Carnegie Hall from the restaurant.The Mass was excellent, even if we were in the very last row of the balconey. That's all that was left when we got our tickets.

Trip to Maine

The autumn colors we saw driving through the Adirondacks were spectacular. Too bad there wasn't sun to make them even brighter. The colors weren't nearly as far along as we got out of the mountains.
Our hotel in Auburn, Maine looked out over the falls on the Androscoggin River - seen here from the Lewiston side. There was a nice walk along the river and I did manage to find nearly all the quilting fabrics I was looking for.After W's meeting we headed to Boothbay Harbor. It was very windy and cold so kayaking was not an option. We decided to leave a day early and arrived home in NJ today.
