Central Park--11.87 miles

Garden in Central Park
I've walked through Central Park but today Lesley and I really walked through Central Park.  From Columbus Circle to Harlem, this was a fantastic walk for me.
Road Runners
 There's always some kind of run or walk through the park (tomorrow is the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure)  Today we saw a Road Runners sponsored race.  It was so much fun to watch the runners and listen to the people on the sidelines cheering.  Made me think of the 3-day and how important that encouragement is!
Moving along toward Harlem (I think)

Waterfall in the north end of the park (Loch?)
Lesley took me through wooded paths that I never would have walked.  I loved it.  To think this is in the middle of New York City.  
 We walked back to Columbus Circle for lunch at Whole Foods.  The following picture is for Sarge:
I think this sculpture was modeled after ME!

After a short break ... we reentered the park and I insisted on a visit to Strawberry Fields.
Imagine at Strawberry Fields

It was important for me to visit this memorial to John Lennon.  His message of peace is especially important today--the 9th anniversary of the attack on the World Trade Center.

I thank Lesley for taking me on a wonderful walk through Central Park today.  I loved every step.
