This is my final New York post. Thanks for letting me spread this out. We don't do much in the way of vacations, and getting to do this alone with Ella could very well be a one-time thing, so I want to savor every minute of the retelling as much as we savored the events themselves.
On Monday we did the Staten Island Ferry.
The weather was beautiful, but cold and VERY windy, so we tried to stay inside. Here is an attempt at capturing a picture of us with Lady Liberty from inside the ferry.
Not too successful. Still, Ella got to see her, and was fascinated by it all.
I was able to get a decent shot outside, but the wind kept buffeting me around and I couldn't center anything.
Don't believe me? Here's Ella with the Statue of Libery.
Yeah, that didn't work so well, so we headed back inside where it was relatively warm.
All but Ella, who had found paradise, because pigeons were everywhere.
She waited to pounce.
She had a lovely time!
Eventually, she gave up.
Uncle Steve showed her where all the pigeons had gone to escape from her clutches.
The whole atmosphere is a little girl's dream.
It was a perfect way to end a perfect weekend.
