Being the Continuing Adventures of a Woman and her Trusty Kayak in New York Harbor, the Hudson River, and Beyond.

And of course I took pictures. Here's one. P.S. 152, my polling place, at 10 am. I was on my way out. Finally.
Catch is, what's outside is only about a third of the line - it continues inside the building, down this hall, around a corner, down another hall and then back again. Mostly kept moving but I'd given myself an hour and it took closer to two and a half. Still, the mood was amiable, with a sort of quiet camaraderie generated by this unmistakeable sense that we'd all turned out to support the same guy, everybody I was near agreed it was good to see such a turnout and as a lady beside me said, "Two hours is a lot shorter than four years".
Forgot to take my cell phone so I had to stop at home to let my bosses know I'm alive & will work late tonight to make up the time. By the time I realized this was not going to be the normal hour-long process I'd already been there long enough that I decided I would stick it out and just be as late as I needed to be to get it done -only be worse tonight, I expect.
Figured I'd toss these 2 pictures up since I was here. Off to work now.
