This sign says it all. Mary and I exited the Staten Island Ferry, walked two blocks along New York Harbor and found ourselves at one of the prettiest sites for a baseball stadium anywhere....
...Looking out at New York Harbor
The day was perfect for a baseball game. It was sunny and there was a nice breeze. I was glad I tossed a sweater into my tote bag as I was going out the door. I ate a hot dog, did the wave -- several times -- and tried to catch a T-shirt. I also cheered for the Staten Island Yankees, but unfortunately the Hudson Renegades won the game, four runs to the Yankees' two runs.
One of the best parts of the evening was watching the big, bright beautiful moon over the stadium. I don't think we could have chosen a better night for an evening game.
I love baseball, but the ticket prices don't encourage attending Yankees or Mets games. This evening's cost was reasonable. Admission, all you can eat -- we didn't do justice to that part of the evening -- and a cute Yankees hat was $26.00. We used public transportation, so there were no extra charges for parking or train tickets. I'll definitely be looking at a return visit during the summer.
I got home at midnight last night -- a very late night for me -- and spent a quieter day today. Stops at the drugstore and bank and a trip to buy a ream of paper and envelopes. I also spent time looking at office chairs. It's time to find a comfortable chair to work in at home.
Oops! Another late night again. Time to get myself back to a more normal schedule. Sweet dreams and wishes for a great week!
