A couple of weekends ago my husband and I were traipsing around the city. My husband's little cousin sent us a Flat Stanley so we were going to go places to get some photos for her class. Except my husband didn't bring Flat Stanley along! I was so confused. Apparently he doesn't think that Flat Stanley needs to be in the photos. Hmmm. I disagree. What are your thoughts? Anyway...
We decided to go on the Staten Island Ferry because A) it was a beautiful day and B) it's free.
It's a great place to get a good view of the Statue of Liberty. I loved the sun behind her:
Here's a random view from the ferry. It was SO windy:Here's looking back on the city as we're headed to Staten Island:And in case you didn't notice, the ferries are a lovely shade of bright orange:
Here's the deck as I'm sheltering from the wind:
But you get some great views of Manhattan on the return trip:
Here's a close up as we're approaching the ferry terminal:I love the bridges:I kind of like this one. I had to be all sneaky so she didn't know I took the photo. I hardly ever use the flash but it means I have to stand VERY still:And here's what happens when my husband tries to take a photo (I actually kind of like it):
And here's the ferry port as we're docking:
Hope you enjoyed the free Staten Island Ferry ride!
