The Luminaries at Brookfield Place, Winter Garden
We're coming to the last of the Christmas decoration posts in Buttercupland. There will be one or two more and then we're back to coffee, books and eating sensibly. Wait, that's my life in January! There will be treats to come in Buttercupland, but no more bright lights and glitter for quite awhile. I'm glad to get back to "real life," and a return to more sensible eating, my water aerobics classes and decluttering. I've let the latter slide for the last ten days and it's time to organize paperwork and shred what's not needed of 2019.
I enjoyed watching the canopy of lights change colors. Every hour on the hour holiday music plays.
One of my favorite places in the summer is the Winter Garden Atrium at Brookfield Place. It's a Shopping mall/Office Complex on the Hudson. There is a marina on the river and it's a perfect place to catch a glimpse of the Statue of Liberty, watch boats go by and drink iced coffee. In the spring there's a beautiful orchid show and now in December there is a fabulous canopy of lights, modeled after the luminarias of the Southwest. This was my first visit at this time of year and I totally enjoyed it. It's indoors -- great on a rainy day like today -- and there are lots of places to sit. If you're very fortunate you may get a seat near the window and watch the ice skaters go by.
The "pond" is on the deck, adjacent to the Hudson River. New Jersey is in the distance. I braved
the elements to take this picture, but on colder days a seat indoors is a great viewing site.
Thanks, all, for the nice comments about yesterday's Pink Saturday post. I left the coat at Nordstrom -- but may return from time to time to see if it moves to a sale rack. I actually have a hot pink spring jacket, and as cute as the herringbone jacket is, it's a stretch for my clothes budget.
As ever, thanks for visiting and have a great week!
