How Many Pictures can you Take of the Statue of Liberty?

Apparently, 692.   I’m tellin’ you, I just couldn’t stop.  Standing in a boat in New York Harbor and gazing up at her for the first time gave me a little shiver up my spine.  I was not prepared for the emotions I felt when seeing her in person for the first time.  It’s one of those things every American should get to see in his lifetime, I believe.  It’s hard to explain why it’s so moving, but it is.  I could rattle on and on about it all day, but refresh your history of that beautiful green lady and GO see her when you get the chance.  She’s just grand.  The only thing that would have made it better would have been fireworks...and a hankie.

We rode on the Staten Island Ferry and got some great photos of the lady herself from there. I love the one of you and hubby with the lady in the background.

I love the photo of you and Mr. Hula!

And I agree. Seeing it is amazing and every time I do I think of my relatives coming over on ships from England & Norway.

Great photos! I would have taken that many, too! Glad you had such an amazing trip.
