In less than one week we’ll begin our first big retirement adventure and we’re glad you’ll be following along.
We’ve rented a 500 square foot, ground floor apartment at 90th and Central Park West in Manhattan’s Upper West Side. We found our accommodations on Homeaway.com Click on the link and you’ll be able to see our palatial digs. We’ve been told it has a closet, which is a big coup for New York City.
When we get to New York we’ll use a 10-day New York Pass to get oriented to the city and we’ll be posting updates about the many tours and attractions we hope to jam into our first 10 days. After that we hope to have a good lay of the land and spend the remaining 10 weeks enjoying the city life.
We’ve had a fabulous summer in our new home in Prescott. We enjoyed great hikes, cool summer rains, and lots of wildlife. Highlights included quick trips to the Oregon wine country, a weekend in San Francisco, the annual 4th of July festivities in Prescott, and lots of family time.
The many visitors who joined us were the best part of it all. Some of our favorite pics and people are below.
On Wednesday we’re heading to Phoenix to spend the night in a hotel near the airport and then catch an early flight on Thursday. Just for fun we’re organizing a Bon Voyage Happy Hour and we’d love to have you join us if you are in the Phoenix area. We’ll be meeting at Culinary Dropout in Tempe at 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, September 7. If you can make it, please RSVP to us via email or in reply to this post. You can bet we’ll do a post to chronicle the party!
Now we turn our attention to packing and preparing for our temporary move to NYC. Stay tuned as the urban adventure begins!
