NYC, Day 2

I am waging an ongoing campaign to become Blackie's Most Favourite of All Visitors!! Jenny seems to feel I am accomplishing said objective! To that end, I even let him play with the shoelaces belonging to my new Asic Tigers!

Yesterday Jenny took me out for a lovely Breakfast Near Tiffany's. Here in fact. And then we somehow managed to walk past FAO Schwartz to Tiffany's! Floors one and three were our destinations — the primary wonders I wanted to see were pearls. A pear shaped peacock tahitian mounted upside down inside a gold netted framework — it was a hot air balloon pendant. Frogs, with white south sea pearls, much like my own in earrings and a pendant. And fabulous conch pearls! Well, that took hours! None of my picks are featured on the Tiffany's web site, hence the lack of photos.

A nice quiet afternoon was spent alternately online, reading Dara Torres' book, and working my Blackie campaign. Dinner at a local Italian restaurant (pasta dinner!) was followed by a screening of Breakfast At Tiffany's with Jenny and Blackie. I'm sure the Hagen Dazs ginger ice cream was helpful to my cause.

On the Little Red Lighthouse front, I have bib number 165, and will be swimming in wave 4 today, waves start 5 minutes apart. Registration is 10:30-11:00, start is 12:05. It's a bit cooler today than it has been, currently 55°F heading to a high of 64°F. So we'll probably try to keep our gear on as long as possible!

More on the flip side!

If Brent had been here, I am thinking we might have had to have an FAO Schwartz detour...

Good luck today!

Pensive cat is pensive!

Danielle, thanks!

Brent, indeed!

I didn't know Jenny had a black cat too. Sounds like fun so far!
