Today began with the best breakfast of the trip so far – a hearty cooked meal at the restaurant, Hogan’s, adjacent to our hotel. Tom had a plentiful portion of biscuits and sausage gravy, whilst I stuck with the tried-and-tested combination of fried eggs, bacon and potatoes. Then we had a quick look around the local trading post, and a very interesting exhibit about WWII Navajo code talkers, before getting on the road.
Despite it being near the top of our shortlist of possible places to move to, and just a short walk across the park from our current location, other than a couple of brief forays we hadn’t spent any time at all on the Upper West Side. Last weekend we decided to remedy this – in the end we found ourselves there on both Saturday and Sunday – and I’m very glad that we did.
