#291 Leaving Manhattan

Entering New York harbor is the stuff of lore. Our Sunday goal was to exit New York harbor aboard the MV Explorer on the first leg of our summer Semester At Sea. On land Jenn guided us expertly through a NY diner breakfast and a short cab ride to the port where the three of us strode up the gangway. A whirlwind ship tour ensued.
Later with our plans for Jenn to stow-away thwarted, we said good bye. Then we sailed down the Hudson River, past the Statue of Liberty,
under the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, and into the open ocean toward Halifax.
As a wise SAS veteran once said, "We may have all arrived on different ships, but we're all in the same boat now."

Yours in leaving Manhattan,
