Rain or Shine, We Will Force You to Walk

Our most recent visitors did not come to New York with the best of luck. Their trip was supposed to take place the week that Hurricane Sandy hit, but was obviously canceled due to canceled flights and the fact that NYC basically shut down. When they did finally make it here last week one of them got the flu, which made sightseeing extra exhausting. To make matters worse NYC was rainy, cold, and foggy for their entire trip.

It could have been bad, we could have pouted and sat inside all day, but we refuse to let our visitors miss out on our favorite city. We also refuse to let anyone get too much rest…sorry guys. We just want you to see it all!  So, we put on rain boots, lots of layers, our happy faces and took the city by storm, while in an actual storm.

One of the best things about the slippery weather is the natural lighting. Husband and Friend’s Husband took some amazing photographs while we toured the town. They bring out the silver linings in all those heavy clouds.

Can't you see how cold I feel?

We had a great time playing in the rain during their visit, and when we felt too wet, or too cold, or too tired we simply cuddled together on the couch and watched marathons of American Horror Story. I now know that no matter what the circumstances, I can still pull off being an awesome travel agent/tour guide. You know who to call when planning your NY trip!

Cheers!
