Hi everyone--I made it back after an 8 hour drive today, and all I know, is that I need some R & R after this vacation! I am tired! We packed in a lot in just 3 days. So we were here about 6 years ago, so we tried to go to places that we hadn't been to yet. And one of the places was the Statue of Liberty, because it was closed last time due to 9/11. It was still very hot when we went, so the boat ride over felt good, and we were able to get great shots of the New York skyline--
This is my son, Nick, the New Yorker--he's doing so well and is so happy. He LOVES New York and we had such a good time.
There's nothing like being up close and personal with Lady Liberty, and did you know that they had to replace the torch? (I'm not exactly sure when), basically because it was falling apart. They have the original inside the pedestal building that she stands on.
We weren't able to go to the top (6 month wait list), but we went up to the top of pedestal building that she's standing on, and got a great shot of her--
And you can't go to New York without experiencing Times Square--
or Central Park
Or Grand Central Station
And a ride on the subway--
And of course, the Late Show with David Letterman!
This was a Very, Very fun experience--we LOVED it!!
