We spent the day relaxing. Looking down from Riverside Drive at 68th Street, the pier and the green umbrellas of the adjacent cafe beckoned. We took the stairs down the hill (past the new volleyball courts!), dodged the speeding cyclists and skaters, and had to wait a few minutes to get a table in the shade.
While my husband acquired two beers and instructed me to select one without looking at the labels, I colorized a sketch of a shirtless man reading a paper in front of the Hudson River.
Further up on Riverside Drive there is a statue of the Baad Lamb.
