Our young friend, Ally, treated us to the fun spots of Central Park.
Ally and her parents met us at the Columbus Circle entry to the park, right near the golden statue. Before entering the park we bought wonderful gourmet takeaways from the wholefoods store nearby.
After our picnic lunch on the benches surrounding the playground, we rode a horse on the Carousel. Round and round, up and down; it brought back fond memories of my own childhood in the land downunder. We exited the park by way of the Zoo. No need to pay; from outside the fence we could easily see the seals performing.
