Saturday evening. April 18, 2015.
Stop and go on the Henry Hudson on my way into the city tonight. More stop than go so I had plenty of opportunity and time to study the scenery which, traveling south on the parkway is all off to the right, looking across the Hudson River to New Jersey. Beautiful evening. The walkway busy with walkers, joggers, bikers, sitters on benches and the grass-ers, and stander-arounders. Among the stander-arounders was a man at the water’s edge, cradling his dog in his arms and holding him up to look out over a railing at some ducks riding pieces of driftwood close in to shore. I swear he was talking to the dog, explaining what they were looking at. “See the ducks, Spot? Spot, see the ducks!”
He seemed interested.
