Alliteration FTW! Mom, that means “for the win.” I know you were going to Google it.

Any who, on Saturday, Chelbi and I had planned to join the tourists, not by taking pictures of squirrels on College Walk, but by heading downtown and taking the ferry to Ellis Island. Of course, it being August in NYC and all, there was quite the crowd attempting to join us, so rather than wait in a one hour security line in the hot, hot sun, we decided to postpone the trip ’till the fall and walk around the area instead. Definitely a wise decision.

Below are photographs from our walk from Battery Park, through the Financial District, arriving at the South Street Seaport:

Yup. Reflective buildings are the new mirror pics.

After a long afternoon of walking in the heat, we retired to air conditioning to watch Love Actually.

Some tourism, some exercise, some food out of a truck, and some of my favorite British actors and actresses. Pretty much a perfect day.

Let’s go ahead and make it perfect with some cuteness, shall we? We shall:20120808-135144.jpg
