Glen, you have lost control!

I can't comment on all the chatter but am at least caught up! Nice trip to the top of the rock, great update and is making me miss NYC.

Harbor Tour

Then, we took a taxi to Pier 62, called Chelsea Pier and we walked around for a while, because we were early, thank goodness.
We went into this building and we saw this picture of Charlie Chaplain. I love his movies so I just had to take a redneck photo of it.



This is a picture of the gardens around Chelsea pier.



This next one is of me on the pier overlooking the Hudson. We noticed the Statue of Liberty in the distance, but you can barely see it in the picture. I’ll give you a hint. It’s in between the two boats waaaay in the background.



The next one is of Hoboken, NJ on the other side of the Hudson.





There was a skate park there on the pier as well and we saw a man giving two younger boys some lessons. Pretty cool, no?





After that, we got in line for the cruise and I took some pictures of our boat from the outside. It was made of beautiful wood and it was just very cute.





I made sure to get it at every angle.





The inside had nice cushions and tables that were strapped down so they wouldn’t move when the boat rocked. This is Mom inside, and then me.





You can see to the left in that picture, there was another group. They brought a bunch of cheese and champagne and meats to eat. It seemed like they barely paid attention to the Statue at all. And they definitely didn’t need all that food. C’est la vie, I guess. I really liked this cruise because it was a small boat, but there weren’t many people on it. And, most of them sat outside most of the time, so a few of us had the inside all to ourselves. I hate feeling crowded so this was perfect. Oh, and we got a free drink with the admission. Mom had some wine and I had Coke. I just have to say, the one guy serving us was very good looking. Sigh…and he was probably too old for me, but it’s nice just to look.

I took this picture of a space shuttle on some sort of ship because you don’t see that every day.





Then I snapped some more of the inside of the boat, just so you could really get a feel for the coziness of it.







Then I got a picture of a water taxi. I just loved how it really looked like a taxi with the checkers and the bright yellow.









This place with the huge frame and nets is a driving range. It was originally destined for the Titanic when it made its voyage from Europe. So, now people play golf there.

Harbor Tour - continued

continuation from previous post

I took a picture of Lackawanna because I’m a big fan of Cake Boss. For those of you who don’t know it’s a TV show about a guy, Buddy, and his family who make really awesome cakes. He opened up a new place at, you guessed it, Lackawanna.



Oh, and there was this one spot where the Captain told us Sully landed his plane. Sadly, you can’t really take a picture of that. But it was really cool to think about his bravery and cool and collected rescue mission. In this picture you can see the new building where they’re creating the new world trade center. It’s the biggest building in NYC, bigger than the Empire State. I know, so sad. You can tell which one because, for one, it’s the tallest, two it’s not finished, and three, there are two huge cranes on the top.



I liked this next building because it looks like a jukebox. I wish those things were still in style.



More buildings…



There’s Ellis Island. I think the Captain said about 1 in 3 Americans can trace their roots back to Ellis Island.



The moment of truth! The Statue of Liberty was finally in view.





There’s a picture of me with it, and then both of us.





My mom made that one her profile picture on Facebook, she loves it that much.

Some pictures of bridges that I’m having trouble remembering the names of. But they’re pretty, aren’t they?





This was just a huge smoke stack.



As we were passing by some helicopters were taking off on the NJ side and I got some nice ones of them in the air.



I just loved this sailboat and how it reminded me of the Pirates of the Caribbean.



I loved how this one building looked sort of Asian and like a honey comb in architecture. I’m not sure how else to describe it.



This one though, is one of my favorites. It’s like a patchwork of different colors and shapes of glass. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that it’s mostly blue.



Not long after that, we went back to port. We decided to walk all the way back to the hotel. We did go through some questionable areas, but we were fine. On 33rd Street and 11th Avenue there were a bunch of homeless people hanging out. So, if you’re ever in outreach in NYC, you know where to look.

For dinner, we ate at Fuji Sushi right near our hotel. It was around 6 when we ate. We had some Miso soup with seaweed and tofu in it. It was very tasty.



Oh, and since it was happy hour, Mom got a margarita. I had eel, salmon, yellowtail, tuna, and California rolls. Mom had spicy tuna and salmon and California rolls.





We were stuffed to the gills, pun intended, by the time we were done. I wasn’t sure if I would even finish all of mine, but I did. And right before we left, a guy delivered some orchids. I took a picture, because I just think they’re the most beautiful flowers there are.



After that, we went back to the Manhattan Club.



Mom had me go to the store to get more bagels for future breakfasts. Then we watched TV for a little while and went to bed.



Up next: Tomorrow’s another Today

That boat tour is neat! I didn't get to see the Statue of Liberty until about 3 years ago...on a dinner cruise!

No, you failed to mention that. How awesome! It'd be great to do a slo-mo re-enactment of Rosie doing "the torpedo" with Chariots of Fire playing in the background.

Yes, I remember the screenshots of your Intro to your vacation video. I was speechless.

Thanks Cynthia! And, oh, I just gave you some more to get caught up on.

Another great update!

Am I the only one staring at the helicopter photo trying to decide if the blob on the left is a person plunging to their death or a blob of pigeon poo?

Rosie's slow mo trip and tumble would make for some entertaining video editing.

Hmmm...there is always photoshop and stop motion....

Tell Lauren she got some fabulous pictures. That boat really was pretty. I also noticed she appreciates a nice looking guy too. Have you shown her Pat's story?

Lauren does a great job of narrating, I felt like I was there. Did she say anything about the size of Lady Liberty. Michelle thought she would be bigger especially after seeing GhostBusters II.

Sounds like they had a very full day.

Good guesses all! The Rules Committee has reviewed all of the photographs in this chapter very carefully, and has even gone so far as to re-enact the boat trip with a full-size replica of the Manhattan (the boat they toured on) with James and Marlene playing the parts of other tour patrons and Swiffer as the Statue of Liberty. With the assistance of CSI personnel, we lined-up all of the angles of observation, analyzed blood splatter (not sure how that got in there ), and ran DNA tests, just to name a few.

It turns out that the correct answer is....2. The reflection in the table, the hands on a camera, the tuft of hair, all belonged to someone else or weren't a person at all, in the case of the table reflection.

So, this round goes to Kelly!!!
