Liberty To All

A few weeks ago, we got the opportunity to visit Liberty Island during the night - It was a special opening of the park to celebrate the release of a new Ken Burns documentary that chronicles the evolution of America's National Parks: The National Parks: America's Best Idea.

This is the first public opening of the park at night and tours were given by park rangers about the history of the island and monument.

To get to the island we have to board the ferry - This is Isabel's first boat ride. And she took it rather well (with the exception of the fog horn - she didn't like that too much) I, on the other hand, seemed to have lost my sea-legs.

It was amazing to be on the island during dusk

Did I mention that this was my "wedding anniversary present" to my husband? I think I won 1000 brownie points with him.


Just don't tell him that I got the tickets for free. Shhhhh........;)

Glad it was a special night!
