Happy Sunday everyone. I hope you are all having a nice weekend. We’ve had some rainy weather here and are keeping an eye out for Hurricane Joaquin as it passes through New Jersey. We haven’t been hit badly where I live, just plenty of rain and some winds.
Last month we took a trip out to NYC into Brooklyn. I wanted Brooklyn pizza and it was well worth the trip. I thought I’d share some pics.
While there we went to the Brooklyn Bridge for a stroll and had a fantastic time. I just love the city, there is always something to see and do and there is so much history there.
These are a few of the pics I took that day…
The view of the Freedom Tower from the bridge.
I once watched a documentary on the History Channel about the Brooklyn Bridge and it really captured my interest.
The bridges chief engineer, a German immigrant named John A. Roebling died early on during its construction and his son Washington Roebling took over the project. Washington Roebling wound up being so ill from a disease he obtained as a result of the construction, that he oversaw the completion of the bridge from his apartment using a telescope. His wife Emily did alot of the communicating back and forth with the bridge workers.
View from the street. It was a gorgeous, sunny day in NYC.
On a another note, I will be doing some blog hopping and catching up on scheduling blog posts today. I have been crocheting alot in my free time lately and my book blogging has fallen wayside.
I have just finished another shawl, using the SouthBay Shawlette pattern. I am really happy with the way it turned out.
Have a nice upcoming week! What are you up to today?
