Tourist Day


We made it, living a day as a tourist and we had a great time! Katie and I celebrated our birthday by going to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. I've always lived within 40 miles of these national treasures and finally made my first visit today!

Katie, who loved the Museum, getting a shot of an exhibit. This was really pretty cool, from one angle it was a collage of people and from the other it was an American flag.

happy belated birthday to you too! glad you found me!

i'm glad to see i'm not the only one that does this. my hubby was in the military...and i'd always become a tourist the last 3 months that we lived in a town.

now that we're settled...i play tourist every couple of months.

@ Credd thanks for stopping by, playing tourist, is like stopping to smell the roses, give new perspective on the things around us.
