|Freddie (1996? - 2016)|
On April 1st, I was unsure what my theme for the 2016 A to Z Challenge would be. But, after the first week, I figured I'd continue posting pictures from my trips.
X was the hardest for me, so I decided to dedicate that post to Freddie. Despite her advance age and an illness, she continued to fight. Unfortunately, the day after the post was made public, she had to be put down.
To honor Freddie, I will determine my goals then go after them.

|Freddie and Her Box|
Her moxie was a reminder not to let anything keep me from achieving my goals. Whether it is visiting every state or trying new challenges, like horse back riding or ice skating, I need to go for it.

I finally caught the shuttle at Van Cortlandt Park to Wave Hill, one of five Botanical Gardens in New York City. Here I had to pleasure of finding a frog sitting in the plants in the Aquatic Garden.

|Grand Central Stones|
I missed the shuttle to Wave Hill and decided to explore the park while I waited for the next bus. These stones that sit along the Putnam Trail were used to determine what stones would be used to build Grand Central Terminal.

I traveled to Sleepy Hollow to do research for a novel. While I had to stop in the cemetery, where Washington Irving, the author of "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow," is buried, the Philipsburg Manor, which is across the from the cemetery, really fascinated the history buff inside me.
