Woo hoo! I'm about to be six for five for posting and loving it! The theme for today is "Today's Temperature", and although it turned chilly tonight the day was sunny and in the 50's. It was just my kind of December weather and not unlike last Saturday. Though this picture doesn't show it the weather was equally balmy and it was sunny before we pulled away from Manhattan. Manhattan is directly to the right and New Jersey is in the distance on the left and I am happily riding on the Staten Island Ferry.
I also took this picture on Saturday. It is the Shrine of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, which is directly across from the Ferry Terminal. St. Elizabeth Seton was the first canonized American saint and the founder of the Catholic parochial school system in the United States. I am continually awed by the moments of history tucked into corners of New York City. Lower Manhattan is especially rich in historical treasures and I so enjoy the discoveries.
Thanks for sharing my discoveries and the pleasures of New York City. So glad to have your company!
