Yesterday afternoon we took a sightseeing cruise up and down the Hudson River to the Statue of Liberty. Pre-kids I used to travel with an empty notebook and a pen so that I could take notes on things like this because there is usually a lot of interesting information that I can never remember. However the thought of taking notes didn't occur to me until the guide said something interesting and I realized I had nothing to write the tidbit down on. Oh well. Anyways, if you are ever in New York City and looking for something fun to do, I definitely recommend a Circle Line Sightseeing Cruise. We did the 75 minute Liberty Cruise and it was really good. And I definitely want to do a longer one next time we are able to come to the city.
Rachel spent almost the entire time with Dave's aunt and really enjoyed herself.
I love being on the water in general but as I said above, I thought this was an excellent way to see Manhattan and get a bit of a different perspective on the city. And the kids really enjoyed it too which is always a bonus. Next time though I'll try and remember to bring my pen and paper so I can remember some of the interesting facts to share :)
