A Long and Lovely Day

First let me say that these young ladies are a pleasure to have on this trip. They are polite, considerate, and always on time. What a joy they are!
We have had a very long day. We arrived on time and hit the ground running, just as we knew we would. The weather is beautiful - clear blue skies, very little wind and temps above freezing. There is snow piled everywhere, but it is not a problem at all. All girls were dressed appropriately and we were all very comfortable.
After dropping luggage at the hotel, our first stop was at Tommy Hilfiger. His sister Betsy gave us a tour that was interesting and exciting. We were even allowed into Tommy's office to look around. (He was not in.) We got to see the workings of the design world, with fabrics, sketches and clothes stacked all around. We returned to the hotel only long enough to freshen up before we left for dinner and the theater. The girls LOVED "Billy Elliot". It was a great show to start our broadway experience. We are now "home" and room checks are being made. I am attaching pics of our arrival at LaGuardia, Times Square, and Billy Elliot.
We will start again tomorrow at 8:00 a.m. Nite nite!


  1. What a lovely looking group! I am sure the New Yorkers think so too.

    So glad the weather is cooperating - gloomy here.

    Enjoy - enjoy!
