NJ/NYC Labor Day Weekend

Visited Amy’s parents in New Jersey for the long Labor Day weekend. First time driving the Fiat 500 up that far, and it performed admirably.

On Saturday we went to New York to drop by The Metropolitan Museum accompanied by Amy’s brother and his fiancee, taking the train in from Elizabeth Station. I’ve always loved seeing all the foliage growing over the older tracks at Elizabeth.

At the Met we viewed the Arms and Armor and Musical Instruments galleries, and an exhibit of 18th Century pastels. I really liked the lion and unicorn on this old American revolutionary powder horn.

On Sunday we went to church, had an outdoor barbecue with Amy’s family, and viewed a tape of her uncle’s roller coaster modeling days. We went home the next day, stopping at Walt Whitman Service Area to eat some Roy Rogers and look at the New Jersey merchandise.
