As I sat and watched the morning news about the heat index being between 110-115 degrees I wondered how long the troops (family) would hold up today. Hell I should be worried about myself. The heat really seems to be getting to me like never before. I’ve always handled hot weather really well. So I’m going to summon that old spirit and even carry around that monster camera and try to get some good shots today.
I think the key today is not staying out in it for prolonged periods. If we keep watered and ducking in and out of shops we will be fine. Sweaty but fine. So let the adventure begin. Its our summer family outing before our two teachers return to work next week. As you can see some opted for a different strategy.
Actually we fared very well with the exception of having our IMAX movie plans thwarted. We walked through the A/C of Harbor place’s. Had a Great lunch at Rusty Scupper and then a trip up to the 27th floor of the World Trade Center “top of the world” observation level. Of course Ice Cream was needed after this and then some more shopping.
All I know is that it was a wonderful day with my children. I’m sorry my Son in-law couldn’t make it due to illness. We missed you. But as the summer season nears it’s close, my Daughter reminded me what a wonderful one its been. And it has been great. One that I will cherish and remember. And it’s not over yet so we have some time to crank up some more good memories.
But first some photo editing of the rest of the day’s shooting and then out to practice some night shots this evening if sleep doesn’t get in the way. Here’s hoping your Saturday was a great one like ours.
