Vacation Buildings -- Still no Corgi Content!

We had a great mix of weather in New York and at the various stops on the cruise.  It was never bitterly cold and what rain we had was just enough to mess up my finicky hair but not enough to cause us any serious problems.  I like the fog clinging to the Empire State Building.  It was fun to see the Flatiron Building in person and to spend some time in Times Square.  I can't imagine being there on New Year's Eve -- it felt claustrophobic and overwhelming enough on a Friday evening in Fall!
Lighthouse at Peggy's Cove, Halifax.  I thought we would see more lighthouses than we did; I'm glad we got to see this very pretty one.   Trinity Church in Boston reflected in the building -- whose name I've forgotten -- across the street.  (I just noticed I used a photo with our big ol' bus parked right in it!)
The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere.
A real mix of new England Buildings.  St. Paul's Chapel that survived the collapse of the Twin Towers.  Buoys on a building in Bar Harbor, ME.  Houses in Peggy's Cove.   A brick building held together with rods decorated with metal stars.
The New Yorker building from just outside our hotel.  City lights from on top of a double-decker tour bus.  I like the elevated walkways between buildings.  I'll bet they come in handy in the winter!  And the middle of summer, for that matter!  Even Glenn, who can be somewhat taciturn, said that seeing the Statue of Liberty in person for the first time was a moving experience.
Another view of the Empire State Building.  A very blue house in Newport, RI.  A jet climbing.  View of Freedom Tower from the grounds of St. Paul's Chapel.

This is the next-to-the-last installment of my vacation photos.  Then we'll be back to our regularly scheduled Corgi Content!  Thanks for bearing with me!
