I began to find time to wander around the waterfront with my camera. Friends had warned us of
the inclement weather and we were delighted to find them correct. It changes by the hour. We had
rain, enough to be refreshing, even one day of snow. At the waterfront the wind can be cruel, but
when the clouds break, the low winter sun creates dazzling chiaroscuro patterns.
I found the Blue Dolphin, a waterfront café where I could retreat, relax, watch the clouds scud by,
enjoy a Manhattan, savor sea scallops, and count my blessings.
