Arriving in New York was a sure sign that we were finally on the last leg of a 2 month journey. We had been to New York many times, by train, plane and car, but never by boat. The view of New York from the water was amazing.
But it was Lady Liberty that we were in awe of, as she somehow served to remind us of this new way of life we had embarked upon, and the sense of freedom that before this was an imagined ideal. We, all of us, had contacted a case of wanderlust. The kids are already asking
“When we leave again” questions!
It’s busy, bustling harbor was a bit intimidating after Port Judith, a beautiful little port which typifies old New England, and the salty smell of the tide told us we were nearly home.
All the places we’d been and things we’d seen came flooding back.
The history and beauty of this great country we call home.
The long passage up the LIS, then the wait……
for signs of old Cape Cod and the familiar entrance to the canal.
And there it is, the Railroad bridge!
The look out for Boston Light and then……
The Boston Lighthouse, otherwise known as “The Boston Light” which has guided mariners into Boston Harbor since it was built in 1716 and finally lit in 1783.
And then, finally! BOSTON HARBOR and home!!!
