After three rough days both on the Atlantic Ocean and the Inland Waterway we have arrived in New York. We spent last night within sight of Coney Island making it an easy run in the morning to view Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty.
On the Atlantic Ocean we had five feet waves causing me to seek lower ground
- my bedroom, whilst Gary did the driving. Luckily, unlike me he can tolerate the rough seas.
This morning we motored in to New York to see Manhattan, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. We had to share the river with some awfully big boats, fishing boats and several ferries.
|I do not know how the men avoided getting their lines tangled up or how the boat was able to stay upright.|
|Railway station from where the immigrants would travel to all over the States.|
|Me, nice and dry!|
|Me, before being cast off.|
|Me, after being dunked, dragged and rescued!!|
|Shouldn't the pilot be at the helm of his boat!|
