So I feel like I have been going a million miles per hour. Not only that, but I’ve covered WV, NY, NV and NC in the meantime too.
I mentioned briefly in my last post that I went to WV the weekend before mom’s birthday to see the family and Miss Abbie. It always feels like time flies when I’m home – there’s always so much to see and do and then it’s time to drive back to TN before I know it. We took Abbie to the re-opening of the train in
and she had a good time. That girl loves her train rides! Bluefield
Friday we were up and out early for our first full day of sight-seeing. We started the day off with a double-decker bus tour of the city. I love these tours – you get to ride around and just listen to what everything is without having to find out on your own. The weather was really nice so it made it more peaceful. Here we are ready for our tour!
Here’s some of the things we saw Friday morning:
After our lunch, we walked it off by heading down to the wharf to pick up tickets for the Circle Line cruise. Our tickets were supposed to be for a 3-hour cruise that went all the way around but the tide was too high and we couldn’t make it under all the bridges apparently. While we were waiting for our cruise time we made a quick tour through the wax museum. This was my first time exploring a wax museum and it was something worth seeing once I’d say. It was good to get inside out of the heat for a while too!! Manhattan

After the tour it was past time for some lunch. We ate at a really good place right off
Times Square called Junior’s. I would definitely eat there again (and you know how picky I am). The best part was the cheesecake! Yummmm!!

We jogged back down to the wharf and it was anchors away for the next few hours.
(We almost look as stylish as the girls from Sex and the City…. Right????)
I could look at the NY skyline for days and still be amazed I think. It’s like no other site out there. Plus, it’s strange that
Jersey it literally right beside you. On a side note – we found out that the Statue of Liberty actually belongs to !!! Who knew?!? That seems so wrong. New Jersey
I think this picture is cool because this is the dock that the Titanic was headed to when it tragically sank in 1912
coast… apparently it’s become really developed in the last 5-10 years. I definitely don’t remember it looking like this when we were there in 2003. New Jersey
Ellis Island and of course, Lady Liberty
So in between these 2 piers (88 and 90) is where the flight landed a couple years ago
