New York New York: Sightseeing

Being good tourists, my mom and my sister wanted to take the double decker sightseeing bus. At first I was skeptical, not only because it is cheesy but because it was really cold and only some of the buses had a covered top! But I agreed and it really was pretty fun. We took the bus from Times Square down to lower Manhattan to see Ground Zero etc. We then took a boat out to see the Statue of Liberty and to see Manhattan from the water. It was chilly but beautiful!

I enjoyed seeing the Staten Island Ferry, it looks so nice and old against the modern buildings:

A catamaran! Sailing that day (it was about 35 F) must have been chilly...

Wonderful photos! This is making me want to return to NYC, it's been a couple of years since I've been there. LOL about the double decker buses being cheesy. I agree but both times I've taken one (once in San Francisco and once in London), I really enjoyed it! I'd like to do it in New York someday.

And I love the photo of "Us"! I'm trying to decide which sunglasses I like best (I love them all!).

Thanks for this great post!

Cool photos! Fun seeing you with your sister & mom. I love the Staten Ferry shot also!
