Day 2 started like day 1 ended...exhausted. Lots and lots of walking. Unfortunately through most of our trip, it was cloudy and rainy. Fortunately for us, we didn't let it bother us!
We were up and on the ferry to the Statue of Liberty bright and early. First stop on the ferry was Ellis Island. I could have spent a whole day here exploring. Unfortunately, it was not on the schedule.
Leaving Ellis Island for the Statue, this was our best view of NYC from the ferry. :( Foggy. Figures.
This was the best view between the fog and rain that I was able to get.
Because rain was forecast and we were there early, they did let us preform early.
There's something so majestic about preforming at the Statue of Liberty.
An awesome group of kids!
Did you know that there's 215 steps from the base to the pedestal platform? It "should" take you 5 minutes or you can wait 10 minutes for the elevator. I shoulda waited for the elevator! We did not go the additional 100 steps to the crown! :D
There is no picture from the platform, because after climbing all those stairs, it was raining and the fog moved in. We couldn't even see the bottom of the statue. That right there, is Murphy! :/
This was the best picture of the skyline that I was able to get as we came into the ferry terminal. The fog kept coming and going the whole ride, so I just had to have patience.
I went with the band to NYC in March. It was a long bus ride, but it was fun. We arrived NYC at noon after a day and a half (with an overnight) on the bus. While on the bus, we watched "Night at the Museum", and guess what? Our first stop was the American Museum of Natural History! So of course, we had to go in search of all the "fun" things we saw in the movie!
Of course it wasn't exactly the same...and there were tons of people!
The architecture was so impressive.
Who doesn't remember the stampede?!
And Dum Dum who liked gum gum!
There was so much to see and we only had about 2 1/2 hours...no where near the time needed to explore. But we did get a taste.
This was blocked off for some type of seminar, so this was as far as we were able to go...impressive.
It's so hard to photograph size and dimension sometimes, but this gives a good perspective.
And lastly, we definitely couldn't forget Roosevelt! Day 2 was even busier!
