Having had a week to get over the jet lag of New York, I've just returned from Antibes, where DH and I had an anniversary break sans offspring!
This was the first break by ourselves in fifteen years, the darlings were with their Grandparents - they are fortunate to have a full set and I believe - having chatted to the Darlings and Parents on arriving back in the UK - they have had a great time and everyone is now exhausted.
Will share the interesting creative photos of thebuildings of Antibes at some point - the ones of me on the beach stay hidden in a locked box!

5th Avenue window treatment
Lots of expensive bags, but have you seen the grill along the bottom of the window?
Great border pattern, maybe?
Sometimes you forget where you are
At one point I thought I was in Paris as this guy kept playing all the pieces of music you would expect to hear in a black and white moody film with sub-titles going on underneath
The best bit about New York skyscrapers is the reflections on the mirror windows
Thinking of "photo shopping" this
I can see Mondrian-esque images here
Lots of vertical and horizontal lines to play with here
The Chrysler Building
And this window in the Empire State Building entrance hall has given me plenty of food for thought.
I like the geometric art deco pattern which could end up as a quilt or maybe something else...

A scene of regeneration.
I do hope this area will be completed as the fountains planned for the two sites of the buildings will be a fitting memorial to the loss this city had in 2001
And at the end of the day what life should be about - Liberty and Freedom
After such a thought provoking morning we spent the rest of the day with the Statue of Liberty, such a lovely lady!

Celebrating 20 years wedding anniversary by visiting New York.
Here's a taster of what I saw...
New billboard on Times Square
A quick walk down to the Garment District...
And if you look closely you will see "Moods Fabrics" on the second floor
