Sea-washed, sunset gates

Out on the water

Statueandferry

Riding the Staten Island Ferry / New York Harbor / Dec. 2007

What fun to be out on the water. The cold wind blowing in your face. The ever-changing scenery passing by. Boats going this way. Boats going that way. The tall buildings of Jersey City and lower Manhattan. Birds and airplanes and helicopters all sharing the sky with the Statue of Liberty -- a gift to commemorate international friendship from the people of France to the people of the United States. The seven rays of the Statue's crown represent the seven seas and continents of the world (and judging from all the voices you hear, the continents are well represented on the ferry). The anticipation of adventure in the city. What fun to be out on the water.
