In the tons of email I get from time to time there is a gem. Sometimes there are emails from friends and sometimes there are notices of blog comments, all of which make my day. But in the myriad sales announcements and newsletters there are occasionally other rays of sunlight. This week I received a newsletter from the events group at Grand Central Station about the Road to Sochi Tour. The tour began in New York City in October and after traveling around the United States ended in New York City today. There were lots of fun activities and information about the Olympics and the United States teams.
The big truck on East 42nd Street showed me where to go.
Once inside the terminal there were fun things to see and to do.
There was an ice hockey practice area. I passed on the chance to try this and didn't wait in line for my picture in a bobsled, either. But I had a lot of fun taking pictures.
I am a fan of ice skating and it was fun to see one of Kristi Yamaguchi's costumes. Please excuse the partial costume. The quarters were tight and only one half photographed well.
One of my frequent and favorite rays of sunlight is visiting Grand Central Station. The renovation of this landmark is beautiful and I enjoy seeing it. I have been there hundreds of times -- our agency headquarters were around the corner -- and I take pictures just about every time I'm there.
Now it's time to finish this post and get settled for the last episode of "Downton Abbey" for this season. I'm pleased I've kept from researching what happens tonight, but I do hope there are no terrible shocks in this episode. I'll have to find a new Sunday night activity. I certainly have enjoyed this one.
I hope your Sunday has had many rays of light. As always, thanks for visiting and take good care.
