For some reason, the Labor Day parade up Fifth Avenue was not actually on Labor Day (go figure).  So I stumbled upon it on the following Saturday.  There were a fair number of men in kilts marching in the parade.

I ask you, what's not to love about a man wearing a kilt?

Times Square Tilt

What can I say?  Times Square was on my way from Point A to Point B and so I dove in to the chaos that is Times Square on a Sunday afternoon in September.  And survived.

Always Remember. Never Forget. by Nancy Lundebjerg on 500px


I saw the ten truck last night on my walk home -- turning the corner on to Fulton in the shadow of the Freedom Tower.  

The Ten Truck and the Tower. #FDNY Ten House is the closest to the #WTC site. They lost 9 firefighters on 9/11. And a truck. The truck in this photo is a Seagrave aerial 100' and it was delivered in 2013. The 23' flag murals that grace either side of the truck were designed and donated by Seagrave employees. #alwaysremember #neverforget #911 #fdnyinsta remembering #newyorksbravest #chief_miller A photo posted by Nancy L (@nlundebjerg) on Sep 10, 2015 at 5:28pm PDT

I wonder if this tree actually produces apples?  It's in the gardens of the Golden Rock Inn on Nevis.  The gardens, designed by Raymond Jungles, are chock full of plants from around the world.  This tree originated in Thailand and is also known as the Wishing Tree.

Orchid (Golden Rock Inn, Nevis)

One side effect of cataract surgery (From Severely Myopic to... and That Time in Between) is that I've caught up on some vacation photo organizing.  This orchid is from the gardens of the Golden Rock Inn (Off the Beaten Track Gem) on the wonderful island of Nevis in the British West Indies.
