The bus, on the whole, is not a stunning photo op.
I always carry a book, but reading on the bus is les satisfactory than reading on a train. Not to mention the cell phone conversations one would miss........like the girl who left her credit card in a bar...........
Anyway, here we are speeding through New Jersey......
.....heading for Manhattan as night falls.
The whole sky catches on fire.
We do not notice the flying saucer until we get home......
The bike path down the Hudson provides views of plenty of water; here it churns merrily from the exhausts of the ferries.
Here a ferry arrives from New Jersey.
There is a sailing school by the Trade Center and fancy boats in the boat basin .........
...all overshadowed by very tall buildings......
Here is the perfect little show house that they have built there --all pre-fab and recycled and eco friendly and green and totally charming. I was not allowed to take photos inside because it is being featured in the November issue of Country Homes.
On Long Island, Lori at Jarvis Houseoverwinters her plants on an upstairs landing. Note the clivia with huge round berries, the pale impatiens and the fern-like wild geranium.
On the corner of 9th Avenue and 22nd Street, a Christmas cactus and some other unidentifiable-by-me plant survive fumes from the washing and dry-cleaning machines.
This morning it was warm enough to walk by the Hudson and look at the boats.
The Manhattan is rather an old friendly looking boat.
New Jersey is in the distance.
Thought for the day --for literary types only: I wonder how many words there are in most sentences?
The book I'm delighting in* but ploughing through exceedingly slowly often has alarmingly long ones. On the page I'm on, one sentence is 52 words and another 68. I'll admit some are shorter. The trouble with long sentences is that no sooner do you get to the end of one you have to go back and see how it started. I do not think Dan Brown writes like this.
I rather liked this photo I took from the bus the other day until Robert said, "It looks like a Hallmark card and should say Sorry for your Loss", and Deniz said, "Isn't that where they dump the bodies in The Sopranos?"
