Carrie and I headed out to the Staten Island ferry.
We parked the car on Staten Island jumped on the free ferry to downtown Newyork. I expected the ferry to be full of Dutch people riding back and forth all day long. Even though it was free to my surprise it wasn't full of Dutch people. However I was wearing my Dutch soccer jersey and I overheard what I thought was people talking Dutch. As we left the ferry a man said to me in Dutch if I had a passport to go with my jersey. I answered him in Dutch. I think I surprised him.
Harold and Mary came along too.
Thanks to Mary we got tickets to see the 911 memorial. It was strange to see to big holes where the towers used to be. It made me think about where I was the time I first heard about it. I think it's one of those moments that everyone remembers where they were.We spent the whole day touring around the city on a double decker bus. The guy on the second bus we took was a bit of a,? Well let's just say if I was mr potato head I would grab my lips and touch my butt.
The security to get to the memorial was like going on an airplane. Ex rays and metal detectors.
In the memorial store we saw the bike that was made by Paul jr designs.
The ride back on the ferry was very scenic. The Statue of Liberty in the sunset.My stomach started doing circles about this time. I think it was the pizza I had. Actually Harold had a similar thing a few days earlier. And Jane on Saturday. I guess I thought I was immune to being sick. We stopped for the night at a hotel. Good thing. I felt like a Japanese bullet train.
The city as we pulled away.
Before we headed home we went inside an looked around.
They actually had a pedal bike in the showroom.
And the Lance Armstrong bike. We took a tour of the back shop and saw all the guys from the show. They were actually filming when we were there.
After that we jumped in the truck and headed over to Paul Jr Designs.
We took a pic in front of his truck. They weren't open to the public. We respected that but I will say we were a little disappointed. After all Jr and the gang are our favourites. Back in the truck. Homeward bound.
