Darryl, this is a bit off topic, but since I just did a lot of NY walking, I thought I'd mention it. I was in Manhattan on Monday and had a great time, not only because NY is such a great city for walking, but because this time of year, it's unbeatable. I walked from 72nd and Park over to 5th, and then down to 37th, stopping of course at Rockefeller Center to see the tree, watch the skaters, and peek into the "Today" show studio before heading back to 5th Ave. Then I was getting a bit cold, so I walked east on 37th to Madison, and walked back up to 72nd.
The decorations are beautiful, as always. I particularly enjoyed the windows at Saks, Lord & Taylor and Barney's. The city was mobbed, as usual, and being part of the crowd just gave me more energy. Now if I could just learn to walk a little more slowly!
By my clock, you still have an hour to make the Dawn! Hurry! I'm looking forward to HAL's new Noordam to start sailing from Manhattan. Lots of possibilities there.
