East Coast Trip
This month was the first time that I have gotten to visit the East Coast. We packed our bags, Lynsey's parents and grandma, and headed East to visit Family in Connecticut. While there we took a couple of day trips. The first to New York. We left at 4:30 am to catch a train into the city. While there we got to visit Liberty and Ellis Islands, see ground zero, times square, Rockefeller plaza, and central park. The city skyline is impressive to see, and I was doing my best to capture a couple of worthy photographs of them.
Our next day trip was to Boston.
While in Boston, I was excited to see the rich history the city has to offer, so I drug the family along the freedom trail, which is a line that goes through the city leading you to sites of historical significance in Boston. On the left you can see a picture of the Old North Church where Paul Revere road his horse into town to light the lantern warning of the invasion by the British (though at that point we were all British, a technicality they like to point out on the trail).
The picture to the right is said to be the oldest pulpit still in use in the United States. Made in 1717. You can find it at the King's Chapel in Boston. Being a pastor that sort of thing interests me.
And of course no trip to Boston would be complete (if you are a runner) without a picture of the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Maybe someday, I will run across that legitimately (without blocking traffic with my camera!).
If you are interested in seeing more of my picture from the trip, I have broken them up into 4 different links.
For my favorite pictures for Boston and New York click here.
While there I also took some nice pictures of Lynsey's family. On this site you will also see Ashley's (Lynsey's 27 year old Cousin who past away last February) graveside. To see the family pictures click here.
The rest of the pictures I will link are more of snap shots to document our travels. If you are not already board to tears looking at pictures (or if you have nothing better to do.) you can see more family pictures here, and a bunch of miscellaneous pictures here.
