Rock of Ages

I was thrilled that between my arrival in NYC at La Guardia Airport and the reception which started the Church Leaders Summit at the American Bible Society, I had time for a long walk in Central Park.

Two years ago December when I had my first visit to the Big Apple we walked through the southwest corner of the park on night, barely — so I could say I’ve been there before. But really, I’d not seen much at all. I had no idea there was, in very fact, so much to see.

One of the big surprises for me — the HUGE rocks. Rocks bigger than my head. Rocks bigger than my car.

One of the many things I learned about the Park through podcasts I downloaded for FREE from the Central Park website is that more gunpowder was used to clear the area than was used at the battle of Gettysburg during the American Civil War. Cool stuff like that is so useful in case I ever get a ride in the Cash Cab.

I’d like to have another day in this park. Maybe next time with friends so I can have people I actually know in my photos instead of usually unsuspecting strangers.

If they rename the park ever, I’d going to suggest Nanny Land. There were sooooo many nannies in the park, it was crazy. But that’s a topic for another day.
