NYBG Plants

There is always a huge verity of plants.

Fourth of four NYBG posts

NYBG Landscapes

The second post of four on the New York Botanical Garden. I had such a good day and a lot of pictures came out well. It was hard to choose what to show.

There were canoes in the Bronx River. I asked one of the canoeists about it and he said they were offering free trips on honor of Native Americans.

High Line Fall

I think we all love the colors of Autumn. Taken on the High Line Park in New York with my Samsung Note 10+. Marc’s captured (two at the end) his with a Samsung Galaxy 10+. These cell phone cameras keep getting better and better. I shot most of mine in RAW which gives more data in the lights to play with in Lightroom.

Collective Retreat

Marc and I booked a luxury camping (glamping) stay for a night at Governors Island, NYC. I loved the tent and the shower was lovely. What a fabulous view and location. And the weather was perfect. The staff are charming and very attentive. It was very memorable, and I enjoyed my stay.

There were some negatives: I was not happy with my food. I requested items to be removed (no tomatoes, corn, wheat or dairy) and asked to have the chef give me something else as a substituted. This did not happen and I had almost thinning on my plate. I had two mouthfuls of a paper-thin beef for the starter, and two tiny pieces of chicken with a few cucumbers and onions for the main. I asked for some potatoes to help fill me up and got them for dessert. There were no nondairy or gluten free items available for breakfast. I was able to order a plate of eggs with nothing else.

The tent had some minor issues: Black stains, possibly mold, on the roof; a ceiling light didn’t work; one of the tent flap catches was missing; and there was no facial tissue in the box for it. For what we paid I expected more.

We did get a lift to the Ferry. Arriving back on Manhattan felt strange. As if I had just returned form a trip abroad.
