The last day in New York was spent going up the Empire State building and cruising the harbour – up close and personal with the statue of Independence. Once again, good weather made for some exceptional shots. The evening before three of us went to Aladdin, and despite being up in the gods, enjoyed seeing a Broadway show.
We returned to Kennett Square on Wed afternoon, on a train that sped to Wilmington, where my cousin collected us after work. That evening was an early Thanksgiving dinner laid on for us by our hosts – delicious.
My Aussie cousin left for home on Thursday (and has only just arrived!). I availed myself of the opportunity to drive for the first time in ages in the States, and successfully navigated local streets.
Today we headed to Baltimore, and Helen and I went to the aquarium (excellent) and used water taxies to investigate the lovely old seaport suburb of Fell’s Point. We were spoiled, again, with the weather and with a remarkable airshow. The navy had a display of various naval vessels, and overhead tight formations of small jets amazed us with their antics. We sat sipping drinks and eating a late lunch at Uno’s in the inner harbour.
Tomorrow will be spent packing for Florida and doing things around home with cousin and family. Helen (sis) leaves for NZ on Sunday when I head to Florida. It has been the absolute BEST time here enjoying family and the PA and NY area.
