New York - The Statue of Liberty

Invited to stay with a bead enthusiast friend in Nazareth Pennsylvania, I was delighted when he offered to be my guide if I drove him around the City of New York. We drove the 85 miles to New York on a gloriously sunny day ..
to see some marvellous sights and to be deeply moved at Ground Zero.

The Statue of Liberty was first on our agenda .. and there it was, in the distance to the right of New York skyline

Moving closer .. we had a better view

Was it my imagination or was the torch actually lit ?

The views of New York's skyline across the water were equally as stunning
