In my last blog post, ‘Travel theme; Inspiration’, I posted a photo that I had taken from behind the beautiful Alice in Wonderland sculpture in Central Park, New York.

As it is such a delightful and engaging piece, I thought I would share a few more photos of it and the southern area of Central Park.


Yes, I clambered up like a big kid and for a wisp of a moment, I was in Wonderland…




My husband snapped me out of my trance by quietly telling me to get down; other kids wanted to climb up! Lol!


Which way to go?  Will we follow the White Rabbit left?  Or did he go right?


There are so many gorgeous spots to stop and relax for awhile.

Strawberry Fields, featuring the ‘Imagine’ mosaic is a dedication to John Lennon.  When we strolled by, a guitarist was sitting on a nearby bench seat, strumming away the said tune.  It created a reflective atmosphere and caused us to pause and ponder life for a moment.


There were plenty of horse & carriages available for a relaxing tour of the park.  They were a bit on the pricey side of things, but a great option for a special occasion.


Central Park has its fair share of squirrels.  This photo is not as well focussed as it could be because I thought this little chap was going to launch himself at me! I could feel a scene playing out like the one from ‘National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation’, so I backed off pretty quickly!


See that glint in his eye?  That’s no ordinary eye-ball: his retina had been replaced with a 1080 HD video lens and he was filming my every move…
