Saturday Wedding in The Park!

So I went out to enjoy this lovely low humidity day. I made a stop at Dunkin Donuts for a coffee and vanilla bean coolatta then strolled on up to Fort Tryon Park. I sat on a bench reading from my Sony reader,which I love!, enjoying the cool breeze, the sunshine and the great view of the Hudson river, George Washington Bridge and New Jersey. Then music began to play, a three piece orchestra. The music was very relaxing I almost fell asleep. I heard someone say that there was going to be a wedding. I looked over my shoulder and they were setting up the chairs while the musicians played as the guests arrived.  I went back to reading for a bit and when I looked over my shoulder again the wedding party was walking up. I didn't get thier picture, but I got a really nice one of the bride and her parents.

Awww! She looked so pretty and happy!

You can barely make out the bride and groom( Chris & Laura!). I was sitting on a bench not too far away.

The happy couple after they were married! The two men on the bench were some of the random people in the park who witnessed the wedding.

I love the randomness of things you can see or experience when you wonder around the New York. It's one of the reasons I never leave home without my camera and invested a new one! I never know what I might be able to capture in my wanderings!

It's hot in herre!!!!

It's hot a  mutha! A heatwave is one thing but four back to back to back is unbearable. It's unbearable  for me because I don't have air conditioning beacuse my bloody bedroom window does not open from the bottom (F**K!)  and I have no room (or money) for the portable ac. I have fans blowing hot air around. My skin is prickly, sticky and  ichy. I'm moving like a slug, my brain is overheated and quite frankly I'm about to snap! I want to just rip my skin off, but I don't think that would help. I can only stick my head in the refrigerator isn't very practical although it does help somewhat.

According to the local meteorologist, Lee Goldberg on ABC 7 here in NYC, there are at least three more days of this hell hot weather before  things cool down. I hope those rains come around my way in the mean time to cool it down until Sunday. Until then, I'll be sweatin' it out.
