Planes, Trains, and Automobiles…and buses and boats, etc.

It’s been a busy two days. Gotta love public transportation!

Wednesday we left the RV at the campground, drove the Jeep to the train station in New Haven, Connecticut, took the train to New York City, then took a city bus to Laguardia Airport where we took a shuttle bus to the hotel where we met up with other family members who had just flown in on an airplane in from Minnesota to see New York with us. [breathe]

This morning we had arranged for a semi-private tour of New York City. It was a van and a driver, all 6 of us, and 5 other visitors to the city. The tour included admission to the Empire State Building, a boat tour that included Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty, and the World Trade Center Memorial.

After the tour, Bernie and I had to get back to our RV, so we took the subway to Grand Central Terminal where we got on the train to New Haven, where we walked to where our Jeep had been parked overnight (a $40 parking fee) and drove back to the campground.

Enough narration, here are some of the 156 pictures I took today:
