I took a little day trip to New York City on Sunday, December 17th to take in the holiday sights, something I like to do every year. I planned out a pretty long walk to hit several locations, starting downtown in the Financial District, hopping on the subway to Greenwich Village and waking all the way to Midtown. It was quite the walk, but I got to see a lot! Below are some photos from the trip. Each photo has a location or description when you open it. Hope you all have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
I headed over to Six Flags Great Adventure on Sunday, November 26th. The park was in its second weekend of Holiday in the Park festivities. I heard that the day before was pretty crowded since it was the Thanksgiving holiday weekend with temperatures in the mid 50s. Sunday, on the other hand, was cold with just a bit of a breeze.
I’ve been pretty busy lately; on the website front I’ve been moving my sites to a new web host and configuring things to work as smoothly as possible. There shouldn’t be much downtime, but if there is then you know I screwed something up. Anyway, I’ve been to Great Adventure’s Fright Fest twice this Fall: once on September 22nd, the second weekend of Fright Fest, and October 20th.

We all used to head down to Wildwood for a week back in the day, but stopped around 2007 or so. They each left on Friday morning while I stayed an extra day. Friday afternoon I went for a ~20 mile bicycle ride around the Brick area, mostly around the lagoon neighborhoods on the Barnegat Bay. At some point this fall I want to do a ride from the shore house to Seaside via Rt 35, which now has a bike lane. Almost entirely flat and around 30 miles round trip so it shouldn’t be bad at all since I’m used to hill riding. Friday night I headed over to the Seaside Boardwalk.
On Saturday, August 19th, I went over to the annual fair hosted by the Rotary Club of Hillsborough, NJ. The drive over was about a half an hour and parking was easy due to fair being held next to a shopping center – although I had to park pretty far away. The rides were brought in by Majestic Midways and the fair had…
