I’ve waited a while to write another post as we’ve had a lot going on and yet nothing really happening.
Confused? Me too.
Maria and I had a great trip to NYC so that I could participate in filming an episode of Forged In Fire.
I can’t talk about the show much as of now due to it not airing yet. I will let everyone know when it does in case you want to watch. I can say that it was a great experience and I would totally do it again.
We had a few extra days in the city and we were able to do some tourist type of things. Neither of us are big fans of cities, but Maria was sporting around like a local in no time. We did a lot of walking each day, ranging from 5 to 13 miles and saw a lot of cool things.
This is the beautiful view from our hotel room.
We got a great view of Ms Liberty from the Staten Island ferry.
At the 911 memorial we found the reflecting pools very touching and heart wrenching. There was also a couple nearby creating this really cool sand structure.
We also spent a full day at the Met. Marveling over the history, and the craftsmanship of everything displayed there. It was very humbling to know that these things were created long ago with only hand tools.
I found a lot of inspiration in the armory section. The knives, swords, and firearms were amazing.
Anyway, we are home now. We’ve had one trip to the farm to work since then. That’s a subject for another post.
Remember to watch Forged In Fire, not just for me, but for all of the talented smiths that participate.
