And While We're on M...

We're at Central Park, across the street from a landmark M...


One of my favorite museums, The American Museum of Natural History

I took these a couple of weeks ago when there was still snow on the ground. This is one of my favorite museums. I had the terrific good fortune of working here when I first moved to New York and it was a wonderful experience. Many evenings I would leave work after the museum had closed and it had the same air as "Night at the Museum." I would pass the giant whale in the Hall of Oceans or the enormous earthworm and not quite believe that I was living this great experience.  

There were some great M guesses. I'd love to visit Manitoba and Holly, I've got Midland on my list, too. I like Massachusetts and lived there for three years, but it's not one of the states. I'll give a clue for the first M state. I was there last winter and posted some pictures of a near by area. I've been to a few parts of the state, though mostly to the capitol, which has a terrific art museum and a great baseball stadium. This is a new part of the state for me, and I am delighted with reading about its history. I'll be there in a month and a day and I am so excited!

Oh Buttercup Sweetie...
I absolutely adore this post. I love seeing Central Park. I have always wondered what it really looked like. The museum, how wonderful would it be to work in a place where there is nothing but beauty and history to take in and enjoy each and every day. Oh I love these pictures.

How exciting. A trip? I love to travel you lucky ducky. I hope you take lots of pictures to share. We can't wait to see them. Keep us posted.

Love ya sweetie. Country hugs and much love, Sherry

I think I want to travel with you! ha - you have so many interesting museums, parks, etc. to see so close to you! I don't have any idea where M is (for us here, Minnesota), but sure that's not one of your M's! I'll keep reading when you post.

I'm not so sure of the states, but I think you're visiting one of the Maritime provinces in Canada :)

Well then, it's not Minnesota. While St Paul is the state capital, the two biggest art museums and sports stadiums are in Minneapolis. I would have loved to have you come and visit!
