Maritimes part 2

Once again... sorry for the sideways pictures!
Peggy's Cove- I LOVE this place. I was a little ticked (even though it was my third time) because they were painting it the entire time we were there. I had to position myself so a rock was covering the painters! I could seriously just sit on the rocks and watch the waves for HOURS! ANd one of the best lighthouses in the world... okay maybe just the ones I have seen which really isn't that many!

This was at Citadel Hill in Halifax. It was pretty neat to learn the history and such... I really am not into history but am thinking I better shape up as I have been asked by so many Americans about Canadian history and politics... and I just sound like a dumb Canadian. A lady sitting next to me on my flight home at Christmas was reading "British History for Dummies." I think I need to find the Canadian one... I'll add it to my reading list!
Statue of Liberty- the first time I went to NYC, we just went on the Staten Island ferry- fun, neat and free! When my parents and I headed home from our trip, we stopped on the New Jersey side and went to Ellis and Liberty Island. I had reserved our tickets online- that is the way to do it if you ever go! Apparently that is the ONLY way to get tickets to go inside lady liberty! We thought about selling our free tickets to the tons of people who were looking for them... but we couldn't give them up! This is a picture from the deck just below her feet. It is a different but ,I think, cool perspective!
