Date Night On The Hudson

Monday, October 2, 2017 New York, NY, USA


Getting older means learning the value of time - your own, that of others, and how to manage yours to coincide with others'. My boyfriend and I have been juggling alternate schedules for a while, between attending different colleges and now having opposite working hours. It's a challenge, but certainly not the worst. Ultimately this makes the time we spend together something to look forward to, and we are always conscious not to waste it.

Last week's date night was a dinner sail on the Hudson River with Hudson's at Pier 81, something I don't usually consider as a resident of New York City. These dinner cruises are usually associated with tourist activities, much like Times Square that any non-tourist avoids like the plague. But with the summer air dwindling we took the opportunity to hit the water for the last time this year, and it quickly became the perfect date night.

I swear I wasn't asked to write this blog post - there was just something about this experience that gave me motivation to compile a diary of photos. Between watching the sun set in vivid color and dining as larger parties danced carefree to throwback music, it was nice to experience a side of New York that I often take for granted. 

Funny how New York manages to tug at your heartstrings just when you think you've had enough. But I guess that's all part of the madness of this city.

    1. Yes! Especially as we get older - it feels like time just escapes us sometimes.

    1. Haha, thank you! Thankfully we aren't in a long distance relationship, just on alternate schedules. I have friends who do long distance and I'm seriously not sure how they handle it. & yes, the date was lovely!
