How’s that for a title? Serendipity III is ranked as a favorite restaurant among Manhattanites, tourists, and celebrities; and is renowned for it’s many movie appearances-most noted of course- “Serendipity.” And-to top that off- Serendipity III is also listed in the Guiness Book of World Records as having the most expensive dessert, at $1000. It is made with 5 scoops of the Tahitian vanilla bean ice cream (among other decadent ingredients) and covered in 23K edible gold leaf. Since I was meeting friends there, I decided to take Explorer Duck along for a few pics:
Explorer Duck: “I’d like the banana split…..and not the coward’s portion!”…..(Yes-coward’s portion is actually an option on the menu).
Explorer Duck: “Serendipity Hot Chocolate! Duckalicious!”
After the trip to Serendipity III, a friend informed me of a shop around the corner (called Pylones) that had a display window full of ducks. That’s all he had to say…..he had me at “ducks.” Off we went!
Here is a shot of Explorer Duck posing amongst the duckie wonderland:
Believe it or not, I didn’t buy anything! But….that doesn’t mean I’m not going back
After such an exciting night, the next day would be filled with more sights of NYC. And….whats would a trip to the Big Apple be without seeing Times Square….so here you go:
Explorer Duck: “I’m at the crossroads of the world!”
Explorer Duck *singing* “Start spreading the newwwwwwwwws!”
And finally…..after seeing most of the hot spots of NYC, it was time for Explorer Duck to move on to her next destination….where will it be? Stay tuned for updates on her travels.
Explorer Duck: “Au revoir!”
Duckshow flock: “Bon Voyage, Explorer Duck! Don’t forget to write!”
