How I'm Spending My Summer Vacation



When I retired I learned that every day is vacation, but I've found that keeping to the rhythms of the rest of world gives me a comfortable structure. I celebrated summer and the Fourth of July with a visit to Lower Manhattan, along with tens of thousands of my new best friends that joined me there. One of my stops on my "staycation" was a photographic visit to someone who needs no introduction, the Statue of Liberty.

This is the line for the ferry to Liberty Island, and this is only a small part of the line. 



The view of New Jersey from the marina at the World Financial Center, one of my favorite stops in Lower Manhattan.  

A slightly different view, with thanks to the Snapseed app.
 
 
I'm off to catch a train to Connecticut. There will be family, there will be friends and there will be pictures.
 
As ever, thanks for visiting and have a great weekend!

You have a wonderful place for a staycation, but time with family and friends away from home is good too. Have a great weekend!

My recently retired husband recently told someone that "weekends aren't as special anymore because every day is like the weekend!". It's phenomenal, isn't it?

Thanks for posting NY Harbor pics especially "The Lady"! She symbolizes so much to us!
