walking the brooklyn bridge

this weekend was filled with walks. on saturday afternoon we took a long walk through central park. we started at columbus circle, and walked up the mall. we hadn't been to this park, and were pleasantly surprised with this part, lined with statues, that reminded us of the champs elysees. we continued up past the bandshell, and turned around at the nature observatory. we back tracked along the east side, and walked through the zoo area. we caught a glimpse of a polar bear, but didn't see any other animals.
we walked back through the lower, upper west side and dropped in at a farmers market to pick up a few veggies for the turkey that we had decided to make on sunday.
on sunday we decided to walk across the brooklyn bridge, and walk around in dumbo and brooklyn heights for a bit. the walk was quite nice, with beautiful views along the way. its amazing how many people are on the bridge, and how many walk it each day. we visited jacques torres for a shared cup of hot chocolate, and perused a book store. after a walk through brooklyn heights and along the promenade, we decided to head home and make some soup. the temperature has dropped quite a lot today, and we are hoping that we get some of this snow that all of the weather people have been talking about. the forecast right now stands between one and three inches tonight...
