New York in Autumn

The Union Square Farmer’s Market on a Saturday morning during September and October is my favorite place to hang out. I take a cup of coffee and usually buy a muffin from a vendor and then I walk and watch. I love the colors that the Autumn harvest brings to the market. The food just pops because the colors are so vibrant. Going early and watching the restaurant people pick up their orders is fun but for me I prefer the late morning 10:30ish time. You get a nice mix of regulars and then others who just stopped by to take a look. The more crowded the more fun to watch.

I strongly recommend the crab cakes from the fish guy (PE & DD Seafood) – but it means you must get there by 10:30 or they’ll be gone.

Walking in Central Park through The Ramble makes me feel like I’m back home in Wisconsin hiking. I can escape the city a little – I highly recommend it!

I love Autumn - - hmmm I think I’ll need to plan to travel to Paris and Southern France next year at this time.

Paris and Southern France next year sounds like just what you need, can I be your guide? Europe's most monumental city (Paris); best Roman ruins (Provence); dreamiest châteaux (Loire); prehistoric art and open-air markets (Dordogne); craggy castles and vineyard villages (Dordogne and Languedoc); cozy harbors and seaside views (Normandy and the Riviera); the island abbey at Mont St. Michel; and a stirring pilgrimage across the countryside. That should clear your head and bring a smile to your face. Guess one should start working on it. :)

Sounds lovely and yes, you can be my guide.

PS. Don't forget the chocolate, espresso and kisses from you.
