Last year over the 4th of July holiday my I was in New York. I had never been there and a friend suggested that we do the patriotic thing and go there to do all the touristy things with the finale being watching the fireworks from a boat near the statue of liberty. It was such an incredible vacation and I hope to go back again. In celebration of Independence Day I would like to share a few pics with you that did not make it into my travel posts. Happy 4th of July!

We were able to go very close to the Statue of Liberty. Breathtaking.

The city building were gorgeous from our view on the water.

The Empire State Building had a beautiful red, white and blue light display.

And of course. . . the fireworks on the water!

Where are you watching the fireworks tonight?
