So the next few entries are about my little trip to the Central Park Zoo which is in the middle of Manhattan. It’s a little zoo. But it has a lot of animals. It was a nice day the sun was shining.

The Seals… are an attraction. They are fun. And yes it would be nice if they were all free, but then I wouldn’t get a chance to snap a pic or two.

The ‘trainers’ are there to keep them the seals active and take care of the seals eyes.

Yep, I managed to get to New York City for Easter.

I went to St Brigids for Easter Service. A lovely little church.

And there is so much traffic.

And yes, there is greenery in the city.
