Pelham Bay Park

We hiked for a couple of miles on Hunter Island in Pelham Bay Park, Bronx, New York. It’s a nice place to take a walk. These were shot with our Samsung Galaxy phones.

Afternoon at Pelham

Last Friday we went to Pelham Bay Park, Bronx, New York in the afternoon and had a 3 mile hike around Hunter Island. The views are lovely, but it was hot and buggy. After that we drove to the Lobster Shack on City Island to buy a take out. While parked off the road in a driveway a crew cab pickup truck scraped the paint off the edge of our side mirror. The list of mishaps grows long for our little VW Jetta “James”. We’ve only had it a couple of months.

Gull in Algonquin Mist, Pelham Bay 1/28/2013

I created this in honor of Joe Two Trees, the last Algonquin, who lived in Pelham Bay Park c. 1850. The mist I added represents his spirit and the Gull his wandering spirit.
