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.
