  1. Welcome to Ellis Island, a part of Statue of Liberty National Monument After finishing at the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, we caught an Uber up to ground zero, the site of the World Trade Center towers.
  2. We went through the Statue of Liberty Museum pedestal designs We finished at the museum and made our way to the ferry to head to Ellis Island.
  3. The rear view of the Statue to the side selfie time with Susan! Manhattan Selfie time again! Ferries run from both New York and New Jersey to Statue of Liberty National Monument.
  4. It was bright, I was warm, and Susan insisted on a selfie. I am smiling right? Passing by Ellis Island There she is! you would think people had never seen the Statue of Liberty before! looking over at Ellis Island Susan was very excited as this was her first visit to Lady Liberty! Lower Manhattan Arriving at Liberty Island!
  5. The next morning we got up early and headed to Stratford, Ct to catch the Metro North Railroad to Grand Central Station. We were all a bit tired, and dozed off and on on the ride in. crossing the Harlem River into Manhattan from the Bronx The iconic Great Hall of Grand Central Station On the subway platform to head down to Battery Park. Susan saw her first New York Rat! She was not impressed one bit!

  6. I prefer the one way. Plus a Kenai Fjords National Park tour in Seward is awesome!
  7. Trace had made reservations at Todd English's Tuscany. Maria got the Fish of the Day entrée Trace, Susan, and I each got the Chicken Parmesan. We went and played a little before heading back to Trace and Maria's house. We also had an early morning the next day, as it was our New York City day!
  8. We left the cruise terminal and started our post cruise adventures! We all headed out of the city toward Trace and Maria's house in Conneticut. They had invited us to stay a few days and we were going to some activities around New England. The car service took us to Stamford, Connecticut where we picked up the rental car. This Nissan Armada would be the vehicle to take us to our destinations. on the road to Trace and Maria's house We got to their place and relaxed for a short bit. They then took us out to Foxwoods, so we could get another Hard Rock location. I would love to go back to Foxwoods to eat at Guy's Kitchen and Bar. We got the goods from Foxwoods and then headed to the Mohegan Sun Casino & Resort for Dinner.
  9. Hey All! We took our Canada/New England cruise back in June. We had a blast on our Lucky Catch Tours - Portland Headlight Excursion. Children of all ages (yes, I mean adults too) enjoyed their time on this excursion. Add to it, the fact we got some great views of the lighthouses near Portland. Highly recommend this tour. Below is the video I put together from our excursion and below that some of my stills! Enjoy! Matthew Portland Headlight from our cruise ship balcony on sail in to Portland.
