The first time I saw the Statue of Liberty (before 911) I had a horrible sinus cold and was miserable. It was so nice to go this time, feeling well and able to enjoy the sights, to take it all in.
I took this next picture once we arrived on the island, because of the date :)
I'll think of the 125th year for the Statue of Liberty on my birthday :)
We had an audio tour on the island, which was very informative, but I won't repeat all of that at this time. I did find this "fun fact" picture:
The part about the statue being only 2 pennies thick was wild!
This next picture is my favorite of the Statue of Liberty It's almost as though she's reaching for heaven :) The picture is on my screen saver. My husband loves the shot too :)
The below video is the view of Ellis Island, which is the next stop and will be in the following post :)
