I've walked more miles in the one day than I have in weeks! Early afternoon got me out of my nice air conditioned room and out into the heat. It doesn't look like it is going to let up with possible thunderstorms coming tomorrow. More humidity... but I took the 6 all the way down to the Brooklyn Bridge and walked half way across. I realized that with the abundance of other people walking as well, I was not going to get the solomn photograph of the bridge I had envisioned. I walked on back without even pulling out my camera and managed to find the 2, 3 , 4 line.

I wanted to walk Greenwich Village. I got off at 14th and 8th and had absolutely no idea where I was. I decided to walk west towards the Hudson and wing it. I really had no idea that this neighborhood was really a neighborhood. I love all of the buildings, stacked right up next to each other with their "stoops" in the front for their entrance.

Tree lined and quiet and a pace I could really be a part of. I still had no idea where I was, but I did in fact make it into the Village and circled my way back towards 8th and 14th by way of Bleeker. My legs thru various points of my walk were in true pain. I don't know exactly what shin splints are, and since I don't run, I don't think I have that. However, the pain being described with shin splints was what I was feeling. If I rested a few minutes off my legs, I felt better and was able to move foward. At some point, the pain was gone entirely, only being over taken by pure exhaustion.

Early evening brought me back to my breakfast joint where I was able recharge a bit with a fruity drink of some sort, really good though. I came back to the room just totally exhausted. I realized I needed to eat. I found this great italian joint and got a mediteranian salad and 2 slices of tomato, mozzarella and basil pizza. OMG was the pizza delicious!

I know I could find somewhere to go on a Monday night in NY, but I am just too wiped out! I bathed, and am washing cloths now. I found that the laundry room is a point where I can connect to someone's network. Bed will be an inviting place for tonite!!!
