This poor pug. While walking in the park, I saw this guy just fall down and tell his mom “Nope, not going to do it. Not going to walk anymore!” The mom kept trying to get him up but he just laid there. Funny pug!
Jeffy on the Brooklyn Bridge. The bridge is a little over a mile long, and the walk is well worth it! It’s a great way to see the skyline of Manhattan and Brooklyn. You also get to see Ellis, Governors and Staten islands, as well as the Statue of Liberty.

We went to a food truck event in Brooklyn recently and I finally had decent Mexican food! I don’t have a pic of the Mexico Blvd. truck but here are some of the tacos. It was legit! We also ate tacos from the Kimchi Taco truck that were out of this world. NYC has a lot of great things, but Mexican food is not typically one of them. Thanks to this truck event I am happy again!
What a fun day! First let me share with you a little about Governors Island. It’s located a few minutes (by ferry) to the south of Manhattan. The island has a rich history, and was mostly used for military purposes. Now, it’s a free park, open to the public but only during the summer. Most people come here to ride bikes, play in the grass or visit the historical buildings. Here is the website. The views of lower Manhattan are spectacular!
Jeff and I went on a special weekend - The Figment Festival! I had no idea what to expect as I had never heard anything about Figment. I’m glad I didn’t know anything because it turns out having an open and accepting mind it what makes Figment fantastic.
FIGMENT demonstrates what the arts can be: participatory, bursting with creativity and completely free, born from the desire to share imagination and invention between artists and the public.
So it turns out that a bunch of artists set up their work all over the park, and you get to view and/or participate for free. It’s really fun! There were little plays taking place, interactive art, a huge tree house, mini golf, ravers and so much more! The entire place was one big fairyland! I’m going again next year for sure!
