...and at least six hundred other people. Had the privilege of attending a reception tonight at Gracie Mansion, the Mayor's official residence on the East River. The evening celebrated the anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act and it was a lovely event. A cookout, great music, lots of familiar faces and the rain held off. I even got a seat at one of the picnic tables on the lawn and enjoyed chatting with friends and enjoying the summer evening.
The Mansion was built as a private home for the Gracie family in the late eighteenth century. It has been lovingly renovated and is now used for entertaining. The gardens looked especially pretty tonight and I wanted to share them with you.
Hugs and sweet dreams, my dear and gentle readers and of course, Amy is in my prayers.
