03 - Liberty Enlightening The World
Week 03 - Monday 1/15 to Sunday 1/21
I have no way of knowing how many Americans have never seen the Statue of Liberty in person. Of those who have seen her, I have no idea how many don't know that her real name is “Liberty Enlightening The World”. Those numbers are now meaningless as I no longer belong to either group. On our departure from Cape Liberty Cruise Port aboard the Anthem Of The Seas, the Captain took a detour right past Bedloe's Island (now Liberty Island) and let us pay our respects. I am a bit of a Patriot and have a fondness for history, so maybe it wasn’t just the 28° wind that made my eyes water as we passed her by. Well met Lady Liberty.
