New York City - Lady Liberty - Awesome!!!

I chaperoned Guy's 8Th grade graduation trip yesterday. We started with a 2 hour lunch cruise around Manhattan - we sailed the coasts of NY & NJ, sailed under The Brooklyn & Manhattan Bridges & right past The Statue of Liberty - a breath taking sight. I traveled to it about 30 years ago & actually climbed to Her crown - seeing it from this perspective was awesome!

This bears repeating : "Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses, yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest tossed, to me: I lift my lamp beside the golden door."- Emma Lazarus

Hi Grace, I just was at your Etsy Cottage site, so I though I would check out your blog. Nice I love New York, we had so much fun when we visited there, Cannal street was a hoot. TTFN
