Today, we had a gentle paced morning, we got up slowly and meandered across Central Park to museum mile on the upper east side. Mum and Joan wanted to see the 'Woman in Gold' painting at the Neue Galerie so this was our first stop. We then walked further up town to see the building of the Guggenheim, then wandered down to the Metropolitan Museum of Art to see the Egyptian art - in my opinion, this is the most beautiful part of the met. The we went to view the impressionists, Van Gough, Monet, Degas, Gauguin - it was beautiful to see their well known pieces of art in such an amazing building.

This photo is for you Dad - to show you some gardens of the posh side of the city!

Next, off to the boathouse for lunch, a table beside the lake, beautiful food, wine or Bellini's (champagne and peach nectar) to drink, a great way to spend an afternoon.

This is 'The Mall' in Central Park, I have put in a photo of me from this visit and of Mike and I on our last visit to show you the contrast of seasons.

Next, back to the east side for a spot of shopping at Bloomingdales!

Then back to get ready for a Broadway show at the Lincoln Centre. Tonight we are seeing 'The King and I'.

What an amazing building the Lincoln Centre is.

Ha ha! a funny thing happened, we caught the subway down and went up the escalator at the Lincoln Centre and arrived in the middle (literally) of a red carpet event. They hadn't blocked off the escalator and we came up onto the red carpet beside the photography screen!! Sadly no Hugh Jackman or anyone else important we knew, we were going to offer to pose, however the lady organising the event ushered us off very quickly!!

Quick note: We have seen the show and it was truly beautiful, as it has been a while since I have seen a theatrical show, I was worried it may be a bit cringey, however, soon I forgot there were others in the theatre watching it with me and that I was the only one drawn in by this beautiful show, music and singing.
