A NY Minute

Saturday night we attended and event that took us on a cruise down the Hudson river, East River (they go around Manhattan) and around the Statue of Liberty. We've done this sort of thing before, but last night, the air was wet, and misty and cool...

Do you mind if I share with you the amazing photos? (Instead of quilts!)
I wasn't sure anything would turn out... being it was dark out and the boat was rocking... Needless to say, I was pleasantly surprised!

Enjoy!
(sometimes I still can't believe I live here)

  3. That's our city we all know and love. I consider it hometown USA. Lady Liberty has always been the proper hostess welcoming everyone.

  5. I am so jealous! I have always been facinated by NYC, (and the garment district). I love looking at your pictures of NYC, whether they are quilt related or not. I have never been there, but it is on my bucket list. Not sure how I will ever get there, hubby hates NYC. I need to come there without him! Think a big BD is in 2 years.

  13. The photos are just gorgeous! And lucky you to get such great photos. I had the opportunity to take some unique photos this past weekend but because I didn't know how to use my camera, I missed great shots. I was thinking as I drove home that I must get out my manual and figure out how to take great photos, not just lots of nice photos. :-) Your post seconded that thought. LOL!

  14. Beautiful!
    We take that cruise every year at a friends Christmas party and we get to the Statue of liberty at sunset, then go below and have a fantastic meal. It is a great time.

    those are some very dramatic clouds!

    Thanks for sharing,
    happy sewing

  15. Thank you for sharing these pics. They sure bring back a lot of memories for me. I grew up in Westchester County and spent summers sailing the Hudson River from Governor's Cup to the Statue of Liberty big birthday celebration in 1987 or 88.

  25. Great shots! I always love seeing a city from the point of view of someone I know who lives there . . . seems more "real" somehow (and like I'll get to see things I normally wouldn't)
