• Wow, what a moment that must have been ~ beautiful shot!


  • A very welcoming item indeed and never truly left other than visits to the to this fine lady holding the light to follow! 😉


  • I remember passing the Statue of Liberty for the first time and realizing that it faces out to sea and that most NYCers probably only see it’s back view. What a sight it must have been for those coming from the “old country” before all the mega sky scrapers were there. I was impressed. My grandmother and her family (Piscitello) did this, even has her name etched into the wall monument there, I wish we had discussed what it felt like but never did. Her and my grandfather did go to the World’s Fair there way back when and came back with a bronze statuette of it, but the torch had been broken off somehow.


  • We were about 50 hours out of Norfolk and caught the start of an early morning flood at Sandy Hook for a fast sail with the current through the Narrows, up the East River, Hell Gate and into Long Island Sound, a scenic detour on a passage to Maine.

    Last Sunday the Statue reopened after a twelve day shutdown for lack of federal funds. The state of New York is reimbursing the National Park Service $61,600 per day until federal funding is restored.


  • I wish I had taken that trip on the Green Dragon. So much fun and learn so much! Thanks Al.
