Just checking in whilst the room isn't being used by Robin's friend to say we've had a marvelous first day together, despite the rain. We walked down to the Broadway Diner for breakfast, then down Broadway through Inwood and Washington Heights to the GWB and then up the Palisades Parkway (with a brief stop at one of the lookout points, where all the English folks ventured out in the rain and cold and I stayed in the car, no fool I) up to the Palisades Center mall, so they could get a taste of conveyor belt sushi and wander around the indoor shopping center a bit. Then it was down to Stew's to stock up on treats and spirits (in keeping with the season), and now we're home again. They seem happy; I'm just glad I don't have to drive tomorrow, as that's our Manhattan-proper day. Maybe we'll see some fake book covers on the subway (via Laughing Squid), you never know!
