So of course we had way too much fun and the month of September truly flew by. Approaching mid-October and we are still blessed with extended mild fall. Winter may feel tougher this year. Another long holiday weekend, with Rosh Hashanah last week and Columbus day this week. Yesterday we took a ride to Long Island, where I spent first two years arriving in this country. There's a Children's Museum behind the campus now. We visited this place for the first time, and this turned out to be the best of its kind, I think.
It was the best equipped and interestingly beautifully presented and pretty well-staffed. It was a chilly and wet sunday afternoon and was rather chaotic at times, but still amazing over all. And it was only 40-minute away from our house (in pouring rain!) We stopped at big and beautiful shopping mall Roosevelt Field then went to check out "Rise of Jack O'Lamterms" show at Old Westbury Gardens. Fortunately the rain stopped and made it a bit less disappointing experience.
So you walk around among the gardens adorned with 5000 jack o-lanterns. But most of them are simply carved jack o-lanterns spaced out like this across the lawns. Then there's some Disney characters, Marvel characters, Sesame Street, Star Wars and such. Even presidential candidates! And dinosaurs. The whole this isn't so interesting nor impressive, artistically or otherwise. It could been better. I wished it was better. I would recommend only if it was $5 each. It was pretty expensive!
Nevertheless, it was a beautiful evening and it was not a bad idea after all.
