|We were not wimps on this trip.|
We traveled the subways like all good
New Yorkers. Well, except when we got
lost and had to be rescued by cabbies.
(But that's another story and it only
happened to two of us--the two
whose last names are Gibson)
|The boat ride to and from the|
Statue of Liberty offered spectacular views.
|If you've never been up close and personal|
with Lady Liberty, you owe it to yourself
to see her.
|Terry and Gail|
|Kim and Randy|
|Just a wee bit of commercialism,|
but it was still inspiring.
|More views of NYC|
|Lady Liberty's original torch|
in the Statue of Liberty Museum
|Lynn and Terry|
|Even being close to the statue, you|
don't appreciate the size until
you see life-sized replicas in the museum.
A life-size mask of the Statue's face
|...and her foot.|
|A very large ear|
|My travel partner|
|Isn't the sky spectacular?|
Except for the first day of our visit,
we had amazing weather.
|Lots of students touring|
|Thank you Lady Liberty for what you have meant|
to so many. May our nation always be a beacon
of hope because we are "one nation under God."
