Penn Station at Midnight


It’s a major transportation hub in the middle of the city that never sleeps. We arrived just before 11PM, more than nine hours later than scheduled and we now have more than three and a half hours to wait until the last northbound Northeast Regional of the “day” on which we already have a reservation thanks to our favorite conductor, Ricky! There’s one more train after that and then the Big Board will be empty. We regret the lack of opportunity to patronize Kabooz’s, our favorite Penn Station eatery but perhaps we can catch on the return trip. We’re grateful for the Amtrak Waiting Area , and for the fact that the “T”, Boston’s transit system will be running when we arrive at South Station! What a way to spend the longest night of the year!

Cobh on Our Own

For our first adventure together on the Emerald Isle, we walked the streets of Cobh, County Cork, explored St Colman’s Cathedral, and visited the Cobh Heritage Center.
