New York/New Jersey Harbor, Portland Maine, Bar Harbor Maine, and Halifax Nova Scotia
I had an opportunity to take a Seminar At Sea and I was able to take along a guest, so I took my Aunt Mary Ellen as Canada and the New England States was something we’d both wanted to explore since being up in Boston a couple of years ago and just not having enough time. So, we set off. Flew from Atlanta to Newark and boarded the ship and sailed out past Lady Liberty and the Station Island Ferry.
The trip got cut short, however, by the arrival of Hurricane Ivan rolling up the New England coast so our stop to St. Johns, New Brunswick was taken out, Halifax was moved up a day, and we headed out to sea for a few days to try to get beyond the storm and drop in below it back in port.
LADY LIBERTY – Liberty Island
Staten Island Ferry
Leaving New York/New Jersey. This is the bridge from “Saturday Night Fever”, and is taller and longer than the Golden Gate Bridge. It’s called The Varrazano-Narrows Bridge.
BAR HARBOR, MAINE – BEAUTIFUL HERE!
