back tracking

i was so excited about posting my art
that i forgot to show how i got there
ludgera and i set out 5 am friday morning
it's a 8 hour drive to nyc
with delays at the border and traffic we figured
we would arrive in plenty of time to still do a little shopping
we some how avoided the toll road
which turned out to be a lovely drive
with lots of small towns and barns
one of the small towns called warsaw
looked like there was some interesting antique shops
but we where too early (next time)
we only stopped a few times
quick coffee and pee break!
we where excited to get to ny
well, just when we thought we where making good time
we hit a wall of rain!!!
we could only go 30 mph
and the wipers got a workout

and them the clouds parted
just as we where approaching nyc
yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhh
then the wall of traffic!
since our hotel was on 38th
the closest entry point was the lincoln tunnel
well if we had known...............
one hour from the top of the ramp
to the light at the end of the tunnel
we did it
arrived save and sound
a little later than expected but
we still had time to make it to dick blick
and them wondered to little italy
for a caprese salad and pizza and beer

Sounds like an adventurous trip - but well worth it.
