Bear Mountain Bridge from afar

One lovely weekend with clear blue sky is sometimes the only thing I need to boost up my spirit. Because that means we can go out and have fun. Right, kiddos?

Bear Mountain Bridge from afar
After being bombarded by on-et-off subzero weather in NYC, we have the urgent need to go out and feel the sunshine on our face. It might sound exaggerating, but I truly need to feel the fresh air with getting myself pneumonia or cold. So, as we have one sunny day and slightly warm weather, off we go to Bear Mountain State Park. I know that this place has great trails for hiking but apparently by the time we arrive, the weather is not that friendly. So then we choose our favorite sport ever, taking pictures here and there :). Besides, Udi has a new 'baby', Phantom 3 Professional, that he likes to try. All set and here we go. (It was really fun playing the drone outdoor. Will get back with more stories on that :). 

P3P ready for action :)

First destination, Silver Mine Lake, Orange County, NY. 

welcomed by cloudy Silver Mine Lake..
First thing the kids say is that "we've been here before, Ma.". Indeed we have and we're happy to be back here again. When we arrive at Silver Mine Lake, it was cloudy and windy. Ten minutes outside and my hands are frozen already. Bo et Obi are still running around near the lake while Udi set his P3P for her maiden voyage. It was indeed fun playing with the drone but after a while, I think it's just to cold for all of us.

so peaceful indeed..

But before we leave, I manage to take a selfie with Obi.

in purple and pink :)

Udi got us taped as well through his drone. It was lovely to see the short video he made :)

Then we decided to go across the Bear Mountain Bridge. We visited Bear Mountain and Perkins Memorial Tower last year but we haven't really passed this famous bridge. Without further ado, we went through the bridge and parked in Bear Mountain dock, by the Hudson River, to get the full view of the bridge. And here's what I have, some snaps taken by my iPhone 6 plus and ztylus.

Bear Mountain and the surrounding

And Udi was enjoying his new toy for sure :).

Look who's enjoying the day..

More videos from our stroll in Bear Mountain State Park :)

At the end of the day, everyone is happy.
Under the blue sky, we are indeed blessed with our Rabb's love and blessing.
