Happy Anniversary to us


We celebrated 18 years Sunday and Monday with a new camera and a staycation. Manhattan is only a mile away, but it might as well be in another country for as often as we visit.

So we played tourist for two days, riding the Water Taxi and East River Ferry and seeing the sights. Above is us reflected in the glass of the unfinished National September 11 Memorial Museum. Below is the 9/11 Memorial and One World Trade Center (aka Freedom Tower), which is still under construction. Have you seen them yet?

Will share more in future posts.

  3. That first photo makes you star-crossed lovers, doesn't it? 18 years is good, good going.

    1. Thanks. You're so poetic. We actually are scaffolding-crossed lovers in the top pic, but that doesn't sound as good.

    Very moving photos, thanks for sharing. I feel a civic obligation to visit this site someday. Whomever was behind the lens has a very artistic eye and captured a great perspective with these shots. Sounds like you had a nice stay-cation and wish for you many many more years of love and happiness together.

    1. Thanks so much. The site is interesting - not as sad as the hole in the ground that we used to go visit. More peaceful.
