A little catching up to do – post 5

I had mentioned that there were 8 of us on this trip, and I was not able to get the memory cards from everyone in time for posts.  So before we get too far down the river here are some images from other members of the party from NYC, Paris, and our arrival in Luxembourg heading to the ship along with a couple from the ship itself.

I thought I had better get this done, as we already have two towns we have visited that need their own posts, but bear with me as we catch up first.

First some NYC shots,

MISSED-3 Dog walking in central park.

NYC -Day 1

We all arrived in New York at JFK. Of course, we had to arrive at different terminals.  Hugs all around and off we trod to the limo to take us to our hotel.  A quick stop and then off to lunch at Sarge’s Deli.

It wasn’t long before we were at each other’s throats –   nyc-7  only joking……

Our trek continued with a walk to the subway taking us to Grand Central Station.
