East Coast Extravaganza Day 6: Farewell NYC

On Sunday morning we hit the ground running to catch a boat tour around Manhattan to see all the sites from the outside looking in, but especially to see the Statue of Liberty. Although I have seen it a million times in photographs or shows, seeing it in person was amazing. We didn't get off the boat but got very close to see how grand it is. We floated down the Hudson River between Manhattan and New Jersey, listening to moving stories about 9/11, the plane that landed on the Hudson, Ellis Island, and fun facts about New York. It was very neat and relaxing. After our tour we did one last run through SoHo for some last minute shopping and lunch. Then we went back to the Waldorf and got ready to leave.  Our departure happened so quickly, and we were off to the airport. It was a trip of a lifetime, and one I will cherish forever. I'm so grateful for these beautiful girls, and special memories we made together.
