Smell like glue to me....

I got some brunches of white flowers from my garden this morning.
It is called Philadelphus or Orange Blossom.
People says "Wow it smells wonderful!" but to me, the smell is kind of
"glue" from back in the school days...
What do you think the smell to you?

How to make it a Happy Sunday...2

What a wonderful weather we had on Sunday!
We went to end of City Island to have brunch at the Reef Sea Food Restaurant in Bronx!
Big portion fries and reasonable beer, Ocean view and nice breeze.
This place reminds me the Fisherman Wharf in San Francisco but it's only 20 minutes from my house! $50. made all of us 6 people full.

This City Island has one more small island on the side.
We checked that entrance out and found it is a Prison.... Alcatraz?

After brunch we stopped by Pelham Bay, playing with sand and collecting some sea shells and pebbles.

Roman Holiday in Bronx!

Went to the Italian street in the Bronx last Sunday with Michelle!
There's a fish market near 178th that lets you eat fresh oysters and clams right on the street.
We walked across the street to buy a bottle of white wine, and enjoyed our first plate of oysters...

Then the next plate of Little Neck Clams, then Cherry Clams...
and then... back to oysters again-:)

After being happily full with our favorites, we ventured into Italy...
Fresh Ricotta, dried tomatoes, prosciutto, and a new favorite in our household, Prima donna cheese. Love visiting this Italian town, makes me feel like I'm really in Italy each time I visit, and it's only a short drive from home-:)

How to make it a Happy Sunday...

Sunday! Woke up to a BEAUTIFUL Spring Day.
Off to Kensico Dam with my son and friends.
Do you know Kensico Dam? It's a wonderful park a bit north of White Plains.
With my guitar and son's bike in tow, we arrive at the Park.

It's such a gorgeous day but not too many people in sight...
Looks like we have the whole place to ourselves!!
Kid's on their bikes and father's strumming our guitars, what a Sunday!
Lush green trees...

... And... here's the Dam, haven't seen the water yet, maybe next time.
