Statue of Liberty

One of my favorite parts of the trip was the Statue of LIberty cruise. My sweet coworkers gave me a NYC Pass that included the cruise. It was interesting to see all of the sights while cruising down the Hudson River. I got to see New Jersey and lots of other neat buildings. But nothing compared to seeing the Statue of Liberty. I love this country and as I got closer and closer to the statue, on her 125th birthday, it seemed more and more surreal. There was such a feeling of pride in my heart for this great nation and what it stands for: Liberty. Such an important part of this country. The statue will be closed for repairs for one year. Maybe one day I can go again and visit Ellis Island and go to the crown of the statue. :)
