The next day we went to the Apple store nearby and bought an iPad2 so that Bill could blog en route. He was assured that it was possible.
Later we were given baby sitting duties as mum and dad had been invited to be in the audience of a live TV show.
We had fun playing with Fox, as well as feeding him, changing nappies/diapers, bathing him and putting him to bed.
Grossvati was so excited he couldn't hold the camera still.
I also did a load of washing and packed for our big tour across the States. We flew to New York the next day and got the super shuttle to our hotel in 29th Street. It was evening when we arrived. After we settled in we walked to nearby 7th Av and found a bar grill for dinner. Alas, that night Bill discovered that he could not load pictures onto his blog on the new iPad. Uh, oh, I had one grumpy travel companion. 'Tomorrow we are going to find an Apple Store and see what can be done." (and here's me thinking we were going sight seeing doh!) So the next day we look up the addresses of Apple stores in The Big Apple. We find 2, one in 14th St and one in 59th St. We opted for 14th St as it was closer. After walking 15 blocks ( I did some sight seeing on the way) we found the Apple store no longer existed so we turned around and headed towards 59th St.
We balked at walking 45 blocks so we caught a yellow cab (well that's a must do when in NY)
We walked through the iconic Central Park.
It was very romantic. I couldn't believe we were actually here in this famous park.
Then we decided to walk down 5th Av towards our hotel until we got tired but it was too exciting to get tired. We walked past all the famous, swanky stores.
Then we turned down Broadway to Times Square. All these places we had read about and seen on TV, we were actually there.
Broadway is closed to traffic and is just a sea of humanity. Bill loved it, I'm a bit spooked by crowds, but it sure was exciting, bustling, throbbing and alive.
We found 7th Av and walked on towards 29th and our hotel only another 13 blocks to go. "Hey look down there...It's the Empire State Building"
We made it! 30 blocks! But oh what fun. There is so much to see here and not enough time.
