From There to Here…

Travel

This past June we had the great pleasure of cruising aboard the Norwegian Breakaway from New York City to Bermuda. I first cruised 30+ years ago and didn’t recall the experience of sailing in and out of New York Harbor from that trip so I made it a point to get up early during our return to capture the sights.

As I stood near the bow of the ship I tried to place myself as one of the 12 million immigrants that arrived in America many years ago. What an experience it must have been.

I hope these pictures give you an idea of this experience……

Here we are approaching the Verrazzano Bridge. Named after the ltalian explorer who declared this area a lake in the early 1500’s.
