A Water Tour - New York Day 4Thursday, June 11, 2015
|"It's Not About The Outfit You Wear, But The Life You Lead In It"|
I woke up with excitement knowing that my family and I would being doing an entire day of sightseeing (or at least I thought)! Finding a parking garage for our car was a nightmare, but once we did, everything seemed to fall into place. We got on that big, red tourist bus once again and rode until it drop us off at the dock where the ferries that transport you to the Statue of Liberty. The next ferry did not come for another half hour, so we just chilled at the pierre. Which was fine with me because it allowed time for my mom and I to take pictures. I loved how the Brooklyn Bridge was in the background of our photos. It truly is breathtaking.
Then our ferry finally arrived; however there were no seats left on the upper deck, so we had to settle for the main level seats. And when we inched closer to the Statue of Liberty, we were allowed to go on the deck of the boat, but by the time I got there, it was really crowded, so I did not have the best view. And let me tell you, it was a challenge to keep your balance. And on top of that the wind was blowing my dress up; luckily I had shorts underneath! But it was awesome to be so close to the statue. And what was even more fascinating was the fact that helicopters were flying around it. Though we did not get off at the Statue of Liberty, it was still amazing to see it in person.
The next stop for the ferry was Time Square. So a lot of people got off, allowing us to sit on the upper deck. My mom attempted to take my picture up there, but she failed. They were just so unflattering because of the angle and harsh shadows. I did however get an awesome photo of the Brooklyn Bridge! It was taken at a unique angle, and I just love it!
Our ferry then dropped us at our original destination. We got back on that tourist for the last time. We thought it would take us to Central Park, but the driver failed to do so. I was incredibly disappointed. Central Park and The Plaza Hotel was on my New York “Bucket List”.
So, we got off the bus and started walking towards the parking garage. On the way, we stopped at Potbelly for dinner. And then continued back on our path. We passed by Madison Square Gardens. The are was filled with red, white, and blue. All of the Ranger fans were waiting for the game to start!
We then made it back to our car and drove back to the hotel. My dad had the urge to get some frozen yogurt, so that’s exactly what we did. It was actually first time going to one of those self serve frozen yogurt places, and I would definitely go back again!
After that we went back to our hotel again and just relaxed. Believe it or not, I was ready to go back to my home. Spending the last few days in the city wore me out and I just wanted to be back at home sweet home.
