Sail Away

As much as I love living in the city sometimes an escape is nice. Many city dwellers encounter this feeling once in a while. For a short fix you can escape within yourself or within the city that is. New York has Central Park, Boston has the Commons and Madrid has Parque Retiro. One of my favorite activities in Parque Retiro are the rentable row boats. It is great to do with family, for a romantic date, or for a picnic with your friends. Don’t worry, you don’t need a captain’s license or skipper skills, just a bit of muscle to row and maybe a dash of coordination. Half of the fun is trying to maneuver your way around without creating a game of bumper boats. It is a slightly harder than you would think.

    Hey, just taking a short break and saw your great “boat” photos. Looks like you were having fun!
    Just so you know it will be in the low 60’s here today. Think, I saw in our local rag, that your temp tomorrow is to reach 59!!! I certainly hope that is true. Would be a nice break for you!
    Anyway, I need to take advantage of a nice day and do some yard work. Will start in about 15 minute (1145 Am here). Mow the front, doggie do run in the back and then also mow the back.
    By then, I will be tired and call the outside work done, for the day.
    You take care and remember. . .I L U M T S B
