How far we have walked today.

We are on an inlet across from Liberty State Park, which is where we need to be for the ferry to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. The walk to the first ferry was about 3/4 of a mile around the marina and down the shore. This ferry takes you across to the park. Then another 1/2 mile to the ferry for the islands.

First stop was Ellis Island. It is very interesting with lots of history. It puts back to the time when our ancestors came to America and what it took to get here and get approved to stay. I cant' imagine making that journey and being rejected at the end. Sometimes because of a cold, or just not having a profession or money.

Not to mention it was hot and very humid (90 degrees/95% humidity). We were thankful for the cloud cover. And of course for ice cream.
