Finding cool breezes

Ashley and I flee to the west side of Manhattan–to the Hudson River parkway–when the heat sets in. The cooling breezes from the water and the light from sunset make it a pretty unbeatable destination. Of course, over the course of this week of extreme heat, we have spent many evening strolling over there; and we realized just how much we’d missed those views during the winter (when those same breezes keep us away). On Sunday night, we walked to the end of the Christopher Street pier to watch the dancers practicing the Tango before heading into the West Village for dinner at a favorite spot, Barbuto.

If this weather keeps up, Ashley, who is usually is most at home in a desert environment, will be asking if we can walk out there nearly every night! The extra little person in her belly is clearly adding his own heat to her temperature.
