I saw a Broadway musical titled “Once On This Island.” Afterwards, I made a “once in a lifetime” trip to the Caribbean. I traveled to the beautiful Saint Martin. Now, I have an “island getaway” closer to home:) Randall’s Island Park does not have beaches or palm trees. Yet, a walk along this path is like spending a few minutes in paradise!

Since it is only used by trains, I have never been on the Hell Gate Bridge. But, I enjoy taking pictures from below. This bridge was the inspiration for the world-famous Sydney Harbour Bridge, in Australia. (Photo taken on July 17, 2015)

“You drown not by falling into a river, but by staying submerged in it.” (Paulo Coelho, Author) Historically, the Hell Gate section of the East River has been considered treacherous. I observed it from the safety of Randall’s Island Park:) This image can be viewed as a symbol of the sometimes turbulent journey of life. “Love is the river of life in the world.” (Henry Ward Beecher, 19th Century Clergyman) (Photo taken on March 10, 2015)
