On a Clear Day You Can See Forever...

 Out to the harbor...

 ...and to New Jersey 

Wedding weekend has been wonderful. Joy, laughter and lots of love! I spent yesterday with friends -- including a friend visiting from California for the festivities -- and did some touring downtown. The view was extraordinary. 

The other part of the view is the World Trade Center site. Work is going on daily -- even Sundays of a holiday weekend -- and the background noise is the sound of jackhammers.

Out of the ashes, the city continues.

Wedding weekend continues tonight with the wedding of my colleague's daughter. I've known her since she was four and I know it will be a lovely evening.

I'll be back tomorrow before I leave for the airport. Wishing everyone a great Monday!

Good Morning Buttercup Sweetie...
Oh what a gorgeous share. I love seeing the beautiful sights of New York and New Jersey. You photographed these sites beautifully. How clear they are. I love the architecture.

It does my heart good to see the building at Ground Zero continuing. I am so happy to see that progress is being made there.

Off to the airport again? Oh my friend, you are turning into a monthly traveler. I love it. When you travel, I get to travel too. Can't wait to see this trip.

Have a fun time sweet one. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Thanks again for the pictures of NY. I have been to the site of the world trade center twice. Both times I was overcome with emotion even though I didn't know anyone that was killed there. As I stood there I was overcome with grief but I also felt strength and resolve. I am proud to be an American. I am proud of New York City and the strength you've had to move on.

Have a great time at the wedding... and a great trip. Hugs, Lura

p.s. I saw your "Pray for Joanne" button on your sidebar. I've read her story and am touched. I will surely add her to my prayers.
