Hi friends! I hope you all survived the heat wave! Luckily Jon and I got home early from work on Friday and didn’t get affected by the subway outage. We ventured out a little over the weekend so we wouldn’t go stir-crazy so it wasn’t too bad. We managed to celebrate National Ice Cream Day 🙂
Last week I had an outing with my office to sail on the Hudson River and it was a blast! I was so excited to get out of the office and get some sun. It was a pretty hot day, but the breeze on the boat felt great. Our boat was the Manhattan II and it was a beautiful sailboat. I didn’t venture inside, but the deck was nice with plenty of seating. The sails provided quite a bit of shade, but I had tons of sunblock to keep me safe.
We boarded the boat at Chelsea Piers and cruised on the Hudson River south towards the Statue of Liberty. This skyline is Hudson Yards where Jon and I previously lived. He worked in the building with the white triangle on top. To the very right of the picture is the Empire State Building.
My absolute favorite building is the Freedom Tower. It’s so close to where we live so I can see it all the time.
The wind was no joke!
We got very close to the Statue of Liberty! We cruised around in circles for a bit and then headed back. It was the perfect weather and day out of the office. I’d highly recommend taking a boat tour to get an amazing view of the NYC skyline.
