We started the New Year with a brisk walk across the Brooklyn Bridge and back. There were stacks of police around City Hall for the mayor's inauguration which meant a tortuous route to actually get on the bridge. I was surprised it was so short a walk but the hordes of selfie takers certainly slowed progress. I offered to take a photo of the kid but she demurred as she knows how amateur my photos are and got her sister to do it. Even with the crowds it was a good walk but we were all looking forward to defrosting after as it was bitterly cold.
We ate lunch at Eataly and then spent the late afternoon cocooned except for me who took Charlie out to illicitly run after his ball on oval. Illicit as no pets are allowed but since it was deserted and snowy I defied the rules and used the ball chucker to let him run and run and since we leave nothing but paw prints did not feel bad about it at all.
