Since moving to the city, one of the many things I’ve wanted to do but haven’t yet to find the time, is have brunch at the Central Park Boathouse. So, a couple of weekends ago, Derek and I woke up early on a Saturday morning and made our way there. While this was a bit of a splurge moment, this place did not disappoint. From the tranquil view to the amazing food, everything exceeded any expectations I had tried to imagine.
I fell in love with this place as soon as the waiter set us right next to the water. And then, as soon as he brought the bittiest bottle of syrup I’ve ever laid my eyes on, I knew this was a match made in heaven. The picture above gives no justice to how cute this thing was!
After stuffing our faces, we both knew the morning wouldn’t be complete without taking a whirl on the rowboats (another thing on our bucket list we’ve been wanting to check off.) And since it was still so early in the day, we basically had the pond to ourselves!
I’ve never seen the mall and lawn so empty! And yet, I loved it that much more. With hardly any people to push through, you could actually see the beauty in this openness. Seeing these two areas this way truly showed just how enchanting Central Park really is.
It was such a peaceful and relaxing morning. That being so rare in this rat-race of a city, Derek and I made sure to take advantage of each and every second of it.
