When we approached the Central Park Carousel it was just a little after 3 pm. I know because I joked that they closed for the afternoon at 3 pm. This worried bunny_hugger that I might have been right, since we'd gone something like 0-for-400 in attempts to get to the carousel when it's open, but I was being facetious, and the ride was open.( Collapse )
After the ride and our being chased out, we spent a little time just past the sunset while bunny_hugger firmed up exactly where and when we would meet her brother, and how to get there, and gave us some suggestions for things we could do to be lost until we might meet up.
